While wandering around Hyde Park in London, you accidentally fall into a rabbit hole. When you come back out, you find your in Bizarro dimension where 007 is a female character. Always been!

Which of the following English born actresses* would you want cast as Jamie Bond, British Secret Agent!

*Over 29/under 50 years of age. No Razzie nominated actresses either.

Gemma Arterton
Freema Agyeman
Rachel Weisz
Kate Winslet
Keira Knightley

@tsarstepan,
Yeah, Rachel Weisz would definitely rock, but
why under 50 ? Are you discriminating here, tsar? Some of the male Bonds were on the other side of 50 too. So brace yourself!

Joanna Lumley

@CalamityJane,
I had to put an age limit on because IMDb has a maximum of 35 options per poll. But you're right. 50 was too arbitrary a limit. Should I max it out at 59? Remember we live in the Daniel Craig era. James Bond is no longer going to be an inaction star like Roger Moore.

@tsarstepan,
Maybe, but I liked Roger Moore or Sean Connery....they brought something special to the plate - Daniel Craig doesn't do it for me.

@tsarstepan,
Emily Blunt. Watch Edge of Tomorrow and see if she wouldn't be a kick ass Bond.

@engineer,
That's a good one - Emily Blunt.
There is another actress....what's her name..ah Kate Beckinsale. What about Mila Jovonich? After having seen "Gone Girl" I definitely would include
Rosamund Pike.

Archie Panjabi is only 5'3", which would put her at a disadvantage in weaponless combat.
But surely that is an overrated skill for spies? I mean anyone can fire a gun! Laughing

The actress has already played an MI5 agent and has a secret life in The Good Wife that no one knows about.

Her ethnicity might help her infiltrate extremist cells in India and Pakistan.
Everywhere else she could go by Jamie Bond.

@CalamityJane,
Emily Blunt and Rosamund Pike have been added. Kate Beckinsale was disqualified as she received a Razzie nomination in the past.

None of them. Olivia Coleman is a brilliant actress, as is Jane Horrocks, Annabelle Wallis and Natasha O Keefe. We should avoid anyone well known in Hollywood, like when Daniel Craig was cast.

@tsarstepan,
Emily Blunt was added late...but in my opinion, she is the only one here I'd seriously consider as female James Bond.

My guess is she would be devastating in the part.

@Frank Apisa,
Although Nathalie Emmanuel of Game of Thrones would be a good choice also.

I like your thinking but she's a tad too young.

After careful consideration, I bumped the age limit to 59. I'm glad to now include Kristen Scott Thomas to the august ranks already in progress. Very Happy
