Talk about the performer of the role of a popular spy after the departure of Daniel Craig has been around for a long time. Fans offered Henry Cavill, who already has a spy fighter behind him. The creators considered the candidacy of Idris Elba to show the first black Bond. There were even rumors that the main character would become a woman, but, fortunately, the fans, they were denied. Now the attention of the masses is riveted on Richard Madden, who may soon change the title of King to Agent 007.
The potential casting was reported by the British edition of the Daily Mail. Insiders told the tabloid that the 32-year-old performer of the role of Robb Stark in Game of Thrones is the favorite of the main producer of the franchise, Barbara Broccoli, who appreciated his playing in the TV series Bodyguard.
If Richard Madden is approved for the role, he will become the second Scotsman after Sean Connery, who will play the role of James Bond. The Daily Mail is the second largest edition in the UK and has to monitor the accuracy of its news (not least after a series of high-profile court scandals), so Madden’s participation may not be empty rumors.
The current 007 agents, Daniel Craig, will last play a popular spy in the Bond 25 movie, which premieres on February 14, 2020. Until then, fans can propose and discuss other candidates for this role. At the moment, such actors as Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy, James Norton are associated with the franchise.
