After her role in the recent series The Night Manager with Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie, actress Olivia Colman has gotten more popular outside of the U.K. The three-time BAFTA award winner (Accused, Twenty Twelve, Broadchurch) has been talked about for both a spin-off of her character Angela Burr and as a possible Bond candidate. The actress talked with Deadline about these rumors.
If she had heard the talk of her being the next Bond:
Yeah. I did hear that. But I think that's sort of a comedy tweet.
About the idea of her co-star Tom Hiddleston being James Bond:
I mean, he would be perfect wouldn't he? He's the perfect specimen for Bond. I like M. I'd love to be M one day. Well, maybe when Ralph Fiennes doesn't want to do it anymore, maybe he'll give me a ring.
What about the talk of a second season of Night Manager or an Angela Burr spinoff:
I haven't heard that. I think I'd probably be fine with that! I don't know. I had such a lovely time. It's such a lovely story. It's such a great part to play. You'd have to be a complete idiot to say no. I think that if they called we'd all say yes. But I don't know. I haven't heard yet if they're doing this or not.
Colman is currently working on the third season of Broadchurch with her co-star David Tennant.
