Lashana Lynch asked if fans will see more of Nomi in upcoming James Bond films.

Following her Rising Star Award win at the BAFTAS last night (March 13), the British actress said she would still be up for reprising the role now that Daniel Craig has said goodbye to his James Bond iteration.

“I would,” she said at the BAFTA winners’ press conference, adding, “I don’t know if that’s happening, by the way.”

However, Lynch added, “I had a great time working with [producers] Barbaric [Broccoli] and Michael [G Wilson] and the whole team there. It’s such a collaborative family.”

” And I think that [Nomi]He’s a character you never get tired of. You know, you like that kind of friend. So I can’t wait to see my friend again.”

Lynch also weighed in on the abuse she suffered when her character – the action franchise’s first female, black “00” spy – was announced.

The actress explained that she welcomed the dislike of some members of the fandom “because they reminded me of the work that I have to do, that the industry has to do, that the world has to do” so that she push for better and more inclusive representation. .

“And I’m grateful to everyone who sent a bad message, because it encouraged me to send better messages to people who support the films,” she added.

In a conversation with digital spy ahead of the film’s release last year, Lynch said the introduction of Nomi was “exactly the right thing for the franchise right now,” but remained mum on a potential return.

no time to die is out now. All previous Bond films are available on DVD or Blu-ray.
