2020 will be the last time we see Daniel Craig as James Bond! The 25th Bond film, titled No Time To Die is slated to release in the UK on April 3, 2020, and in the US on April 8, 2020. The casting rumours for the next 007 agent is already making the rounds with names like Idris Elba and Tom Hardy topping many lists. Recently, Game of Thrones star Richard Madden's name has been added to the mix and is also getting a strong backing from fans to portray the role of the famous British spy.

While Richard has denied any reports of him already being cast as the next James Bond, he recently got the seal of approval from a former Bond villain and GOT co-star, Sean Bean. Sean went head-to-head against Pierce Brosnan in GoldenEye (1995) and during his recent interview with The Sun, the 60-year-old actor backed his Game of Thrones on-screen son, Richard, as the next James Bond. Talking about why the 32-year-old actor should be the next 007 agent, Bean revealed, "He’s got everything that’s required of the role. He’s strong, he’s masculine and he’s also got a soft underbelly, he’s vulnerable, good looking — Scottish!"

"I can’t see why he wouldn’t get the part. Everybody was great who came through Game Of Thrones. But I always sensed he was a very fine actor. He had gravity and that thing we talked about at drama school — presence. He had a lot of presence." Sean beamed.

We're getting major Stark feels, thanks to Ned Stark and Robb Stark!
