Recall the Good old James Bond film? Indeed, it was extremely well known during the 1980s through to the 90s. The film after such a large number of years have been re-made with a few different on-screen characters.
Curiously, during all these re-shoots, there were a couple of black actors casted in the film. Fortunately, Lashana Lynch, a Jamaican and a British actress is one of the principal ever black female James Bond characters.
Lashana praised her historic job at a starry Hollywood honors service. Giving her speech at the occasion, Lashana said, “It is an honor to be able to proudly fly our big Jamaican flag up in MI6 as a 00 agent.”
The British actress, who featured as pilot and glad single parent Maria Rambeau in “Chief Marvel,” is shaking and working up the Bond inheritance as 00 operator Nomi in “No Time to Die,” which will be out in April 2020. The film is Daniel Craig’s last as 007.
While Bond has recently featured solid characters played by stars including Grace Jones and Halle Berry, Lashana is the 60-year-old franchise’s first ever black female agent, who as of now has a world class 00 status, and assumes control over the 007 status when Bond leaves the British Intelligence servic service MI6.
Lashana couldn’t shroud her satisfaction and brought the house down at Essence’s starry Black Women at the Hollywood Awards ceremony. She Picked up the main honor at the exciting Beverly Hills slam on the 19th March, 2020. Speaking at the event, she stated,
“It used to somewhat scare me knowing there were little black girls around the world potentially looking up to me and what I do … but I soon realized it is a golden opportunity to speak to those I care about through my work. … It was a privilege play Maria Rambeau and give an ode to single black mothers who are truly heroes without capes, and it is an honor to be able to proudly flam our big Jamaican flag up in MI6 as a 00 agent.”
Depicting herself as, “A dark skinned, working class young woman from West London who originates from an outsider family, she paid an enthusiastic tribute to her mother Sonia Lynch, a single parent who maintained two sources of income to bring her and her two siblings up, with the assistance of her grandma. It was a passionate night for Lashana as gave a flashback and a motivating yet an enthusiastic message.
