Actress Diane Kruger, who has played the role of a spy in The Operative, says she had a dream of playing female James Bond in films.
In an interview to The i Paper, Kruger spoke about her upcoming film and her dream of being the first woman to portray 007 — who is currently played by Daniel Craig.
She said: "I always thought it must be so cool to be James Bond. But the realities of being a spy are closer to what we did. It's cool, but I don't dream about it anymore."
The Operative follows a rogue spy who vanishes while attending her father's funeral. Kruger also insisted that away from the cameras she is a very "introverted" person and it is her acting career that has forced her to be more "outgoing" to her benefit.
"I'm very introverted, in my real life, to a fault. I think I can appear cold or standoffish. I really have to force myself to be outgoing. Acting has, for me, been the opportunity to identity with someone else, be someone else," she added.
The 25th film of the James Bond franchise is reportedly yet to have a completed script or title, even if the official cast and crew line-up has been confirmed.
