But 29-year-old Clarke is not the only female star to have thrown her hat in the ring. Earlier this month X Files star Gillan Anderson was the subject of a twitter campaign, with fans asking for her to replace Daniel Craig. Bollywood’s export to Hollywood, Priyanka Chopra also expressed interest in the role.

A lot of people, however, are placing their money on Tom Hiddleston while Fantastic Four star Jamie Bell is also reportedly in discussion with James Bond producer about replacing Daniel Craig as 007 agent in the franchise.

Bell has had a meeting with Barbara Broccoli, who coincidentally produces the actor’s new movie Film Stars Don’t Die, about taking over the coveted role, reported Deadline.
