The role of James Bond will not be given to a woman after Daniel Craig, it’s been announced. This has been spoken about by a range of people involved in the franchise, including Barbara Broccoli herself. However, one female star has risen in the odds which is leaving many fans in shock at what could come.
While these ideas have been denied by various people involved in the franchise, one person’s name has crept up in the odds and looks like they could genuinely make a female Agenct 007 a possibility.
According to Ladbrokes, Clarke, AKA Daenerys in Game of Thrones, has become the most likely woman to take on the mantle, with her chances currently sitting at 33/1.
This is higher than some big names, such as The Gentlemen stars Henry Golding and Charlie Hunnam, former favourite Dan Stevens, and Ben Barnes, known for his role in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
And, compared to megastars Will Smith and Colin Farrell, she is far more likely in the odds, with their chances sitting at 100/1, which David Beckham’s chances are at 250/1.
Clarke is even sitting prettier than Christian Bale, Harry Styles, Orlando Bloom and James McAvoy, with even Ryan Gosling seeming a less likely choice in the odds than the Game of Thrones star.
Since the HBO series ended, Clarke has done a huge number of films, with movies such as Last Christmas wowing fans.
She has also been in movies such as Me Before You, The Garden of Last Days and Solo: A Star Wars Story while filming the Game of Thrones series.
Clarke is expected to appear in historical drama The Guns of August, as well as romcom The Beauty Inside and historical biopic Let Me Count the Ways, where she will play English post Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
Despite her having greater chances than previously, another woman is sitting at 20/1 odds according to Paddy Power and Betfair – Megan Fox.
The Transformers star would certainly maintain the seductive element to Bond, and has been known to play action roles in the past.
