‘007’: Henry Golding says diversity “shouldn’t be a factor” in choosing next James Bond

Now that Daniel Craig has stepped down from the role of James Bond, the place is open and several stars have joined the fan list.

But one of the audience’s biggest cravings is to see the character played by a black actor or actor from diverse backgrounds, someone who surpasses the franchise standard.

By the way, Henry Golding (“Snake Eyes”) has become a likely candidate for the role of fans, as there has never been an Asian Bond.

On the other hand, the Malaysian star told Times Radio that racial diversity should not be a factor in choosing the new performer of the film’s most famous agent.

For him, MGM should be looking for someone who represents the main characteristics of the 007, such as its personality and charm.

“Ethnic diversity shouldn’t be a factor when it comes to this character. I think Bond represents something that we all grew up with, he’s a man with a strong personality, unwavering properties, but he has a protective and sensitive side. I think the important thing is to be faithful to the raw material and to highlight its qualities. I think reducing it to a physical image takes away all the charm. “

He added:

“But I think they’ll pick the right person for the role. Whether black, Asian, Latino, mixed race … Anything, as long as they have the attributes that are faithful to him. I think that’s what the fans really want.

So, do you agree with him?
