James Bond: Britt Ekland AGAINST changing franchise as she’s ‘proudest Bond girl there is’ | Films | Entertainment

The 77-year-old actress starred alongside former James Bond star Sir Roger Moore in The Man with the Golden Gun. The film came out in 1974 and Ekland played the gorgeous Bond girl Mary Goodnight. But the star, who was once married to Peter Sellers, shared her belief the traditional Bond girl won’t be returning to the franchise.

Speaking to The Guardian, Ekland insisted that now more than ever she cherishes her role in the iconic spy series.

Bond girls have remained static in the franchise for years, with many questioning the apparent sexism against women given today’s climate.

The actress told the publication: “I’m the proudest Bond girl there is because there are not a lot of us left.

“And there won’t be any in future.”

“You were either in your trailer, which was outside the shooting area, [or on set].”

Barber shot three scenes for Spectre, but only one made the film’s final cut.

On shooting one set in Japan, he said: “We took over the entire City Hall on the Thames, the Mayor’s office, and that became downtown Tokyo.

“So they green-screened out all the windows and obviously the skyline outside was Tokyo.

“They were really controlling; they put everybody into one room,” the actor added.

The latest film in the series, No Time to Die, was originally slated for release in April.

Unfortunately the ever-changing conditions surrounding the coronavirus pandemic pushed it back to later this year.

No Time To Die will be released in cinemas in November.
