The Goldeneye actor, who played the role in four films, told the Hollywood Reporter he believes it would be "exhilarating" and "exciting" to see a female Bond.

Ms Broccoli, daughter of Cubby Broccoli, who adapted Ian Fleming's spy novels to film, insisted the character was written for a man to play.

"Bond is male. He's a male character. He was written as a male and I think he'll probably stay as a male. And that's fine."

She told the Daily Mail turning male characters into women isn't the right approach.

"Let's just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters."
