The next 007 should be transgender, according to actor Dominic West.

And Hannah Graf, the British Army’s highest ranking transgender soldier, is perfect for the role, he believes.

West, 49, told the Sunday Times magazine: “Maybe a transgender Bond would be cool.

“There’s a very cool woman who’s the wife of an actor in (his latest film) Colette, who is a captain in the electrical engineers, the highest ranking transgender soldier in the army.

“She’s done two tours of Afghanistan.

“She’s a beautiful blonde girl who could be Bond, yes.”

“That’s actually a brilliant idea,” said the actor.

The next Bond movie – due for release in the UK in October next year – will be Craig’s fifth outing as 007.
The film is expected to be his last time playing the spy, having previously starred in Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.
