Dame Diana Rigg, who played Bond girl Tracy Bond, has said that she would love to see a black or lesbian Bond.
She spoke about this in a recent interview with the Radio Times, saying: “A black Bond would be lovely. I wouldn’t like to see a female Bond, because we wouldn’t want to lose the Bond girls. But we could have a lesbian Bond, why not?”
Dame Diana also touched on her love of TV, which she prefers to film, despite the fact that she starred in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service as Bond’s wife.
“When I started, TV was regarded as something that wasn’t as great as film, or theatre, or radio, but it has proved to have far greater powers than those. It’s a very powerful medium now, and should be celebrated as such, because we have the greatest television in the world.”
