When asked Hoult what he thought about his name being included as a potential successor to Daniel Craig’s 007, the 26-year-old actor said, “I think I’m a bit too young, to be honest,” noting that Bond is usually in his “30s or 40s.”

“Yeah, but that’s getting a little stale,” Stewart interjected.

The pair then dismissed critics of casting a black or female actor as Bond. Stewart, 26, even imagined how a female version of the character could be introduced.

“You start off as the Bond girl and then you think it’s just the girlfriend and then you’re like, ‘She’s actually [Bond]’,” she said. “In the trailer, it’s him and then [a] bait and switch.”
