James Bond, aka 007, is a fictional character based on Ian Fleming’s novel series.  Bond is a British secret service agent who is deployed on dangerous missions throughout the series.

Multiple actors have played this character in over 20 movies with the earliest one in 1962 and the latest in 2021. Such is the popularity of the agent that the film creators are always keen on making new movies with it. Daniel Craig is the most recent actor who played James Bond and in No time to Die, he probably played the character for the last time.

Ana said, “This is a novel, and it leads into this James Bond world and this fantasy of that universe where he’s at.”

The Women in the Movies should not Just be Viewed as a Sex Symbol

The actress said that what she would like is that the women in the movies to be more rounded and well-layered. She said this because women in James Bond movies are just viewed as sex symbols. Ana further said, “What I would like is that the female roles in the Bond films, even though Bond will continue to be a man, are brought to life in a different way, that they’re given a more substantial part and recognition.”

Ana de Armas shared the stage with Daniel Craig in the movie No Time to Die. She merely had a screen time of 5 minutes in the movie, playing the role of CIA agent Paloma who teams up with Bond in Havana wearing a backless dress.
