Gillian Anderson, who is best known for starring on The X-Files, is happy to have rumors swirling about her being the first female James Bond.
Gillian Anderson As James Bond?
Anderson took to Twitter over the weekend with an edited poster that featured her as 007. “It’s Bond. Jane Bond,” she captioned the picture. “Thanks for all the votes! (And sorry, don’t know who made poster but I love it!) #NextBond.”

A couple of days after posting the picture, Anderson participated in a Tumblr Q&A in which she was predictably asked about the idea of playing James Bond.
“How do you feel about the Jane Bond news and how big it got all over the Internet?” Anderson poured some cold water on the prospect, replying, “Well, it’s not news, it’s a fantasy. Someone made a fabulous poster and it started an intriguing conversation. Will it ever happen in the real world? More than probably not.”
While Anderson may think it’s unlikely that she’ll ever get the chance to play Bond, that doesn’t mean that she dislikes the idea. When asked what her favorite rumor about herself is, The Fall star wrote, “That I might be the next James Bond.”
