Lashana Lynch couldn't care less. The actress, who is reportedly stepping into the big shoes of James Bond 007 character, has responded to the backlash over her potentially being the new 007 in 'No Time To Die'. The film, which is gearing up for release next year, has Daniel Craig at the centre of things but as per reports the makers will be introducing a female Bond this time around. And while Lashana Lynch is onboard and will soon wrap up filming, the actress is keeping mum on the issue. 

However, the actress recently addressed the backlash she faced when reports of her playing 007 surfaced back in July. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Lynch said, “It doesn’t dishearten me. It makes me feel quite sad for some people because their opinions, they’re not even from a mean place — they’re actually from a sad place." 

She also added, "It’s not about me. People are reacting to an idea, which has nothing to do with my life." Die-hard fans of the franchise were not entirely happy with the idea of a female Bond. Lynch even revealed how she used to send polite messages to some of the trolls, which at times prompted them to change their tone. "They've been like, 'Oh my gosh, thank you so much!' But it's an interesting test because it reminds them that they definitely wouldn't say that to someone's face," she said.

A source had earlier told Mirror UK that the climax could involve Craig's Bond dying and being replaced by a new, female Bond. Apart from Craig, the new James Bond sees Oscar-winning actor Rami Malek join the Bond franchise as a villain.
