The star of The Wire believes that it should be taken forward by Hannah Graf, the highest-ranking transgender soldier in the British Army.
Dominic told The Sunday Times Magazine, “She’s a beautiful girl who could be Bond. That’s actually a brilliant idea. They should have a transgender Bond because there are a lot of transgender people in the army.”
Hannah Graf responded to his comments, revealing, “I’m very flattered that Dominic thought of me,” she said “I don’t think I’m going to become an actress anytime soon, but there’s no reason why there shouldn’t be a transgender Bond. We’ve seen too many men in hero-type roles and women playing second fiddle.”
Since Dominic’s comments, people have argued that the entire thing is unnecessary.
One user wrote, “They should have a transgender Bond because there are a lot of transgender people in the army”. There’s a lot more men in the army, so probably best stick with a man if that’s how the role is to be determined.”
Another commented, “You do you, that’s perfectly fine with me but if you want to have a transgender kick ass spy MAKE ANOTHER CHARACTER!
It's a tricky topic. What do you guys think?
