Lashana Lynch Responds to Backlash for Her 007 Role in 'No Time to Die'

Lashana Lynch is starring alongside Daniel Craig in the upcoming James Bond movie No Time to Die and she has faced a lot of backlash after her casting was announced.

The 32-year-old actress, best known for playing Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel, plays Nomi, who is rumored to inherit the 007 title from James Bond in the movie.

Lashana thinks any other Black actress would have received the same criticism had they landed the role.

“I am one Black woman — if it were another Black woman cast in the role, it would have been the same conversation, she would have got the same attacks, the same abuse,” Lashana told Harper’s Bazaar UK. “I just have to remind myself that the conversation is happening and that I’m a part of something that will be very, very revolutionary.”

“I feel very grateful that I get to challenge those narratives,” she added. “We’re moving away from toxic masculinity, and that’s happening because women are being open, demanding and vocal, and calling out misbehaviour as soon as we see it.”

'No Time to Die' Poster Revealed Amid Reports That Film Might Be Next Blockbuster to Hit Theaters

There’s a new poster for the James Bond movie No Time to Die, which may very well be the next major blockbuster to hit theaters after the Coronavirus pandemic.

Amid reports that Disney/Marvel is considering moving the planned November release of Black Window, this would place No Time to Die as the next big movie to hit theaters on November 20.

Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet was one of the first major movies to open in theaters during the COVID-19 pandemic and it hasn’t had a huge box office domestically.

Here’s a synopsis: In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Daniel Craig stars alongside Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinnear, Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, and Billy Magnussen.
