Lashana Lynch confirmed that she’s the next 007
Way back in July 2019, British actress Lashana Lynch was reported to be the next 007, following in Daniel Craig’s footsteps as the infamous secret agent. Now, in a new interview, Lynch has confirmed that she will indeed be the first Black woman to take on the iconic role and has been preparing herself emotionally for the inevitable backlash. “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,” she said. “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.”
