Another wrote: “Conventionally beautiful and way too young for Daniel Craig. Yep she’s the Bond Girl.”
Bond 25 also gets Rami Malek
This means that Bond 25 will be the second film that Ana de Armas will do alongside Daniel Craig. The duo is also starring in Knives Out which comes out later this year.
The actress has also featured in 2017s Blade Runner 2049. The role also got her a Saturn Award nomination for the best supporting actress category.
Other new cast members include David Dencik, Lashana Lynch and Billy Magnussen. Ralph Fiennes, Naomi Harris, Ben Whishaw.
More importantly, it has been confirmed that Oscar winner Rami Malek will play the villain in the upcoming Bond film. Malek spoke over Good Morning America right after the big news came out. He said, “It’s thrilling. It’s something so many generations have grown up with. You watch it with one of your parents, and then you just keep watching, one right after the other. They’re timeless movies.
“This is such a perfect follow-up, I think, to Bohemian Rhapsody [in which Malek played Queen frontman Freddie Mercury]. You know, going from one iconic Brit to an iconic British franchise.”
