The First Photos of Lashana Lynch as 007 in James Bond Film No Time to Die Have Arrived
[Esquire] The announcement of Lashana Lynch’s casting as 007 this summer was big news, partially because of some confusion over the fact that she won’t be playing the actual character of James Bond in 2020’s No Time to Die, but a spy who inherits the codename in the wake of Bond’s retirement. Still, the casting of a black woman as 007 was pretty damn cool‐and now, the first images of Lynch on set in Italy are here.
In the photos, Lynch definitely looks the 007 part, wearing an action-ready black fatigue jumpsuit and strapped with enough fake ammo to take out a ton of henchmen. In the film, she plays a young MI6 agent who’s inherited the 007 codename, while Craig’s Bond emerges from retirement to in Jamaica to rescue a scientist who’s been taken hostage. It’s a venture that leads him "onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology," according to the movie’s official synopsis.
