Dominic West says trans soldier Hannah Graf should play James Bond
Dominic West has said Hannah Graf, the highest ranking transgender soldier in the British army, should play the next James Bond.
The British star told The Sunday Times Magazine: “She’s a beautiful girl who could be Bond.
“They should have a transgender Bond because there are a lot of transgender people in the army. That’s actually a brilliant idea.”
Graf serves with the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.
In 2013, she came out as a transgender woman and became the highest ranking trans soldier within the British Army.
Responding to West’s recommendation, Graf said she was “flattered”.
“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,“ she said.
Graf added there have been “too many men” in hero roles.
West met Graf after starring alongside her husband Jake in the new film Colette, which also stars Keira Knightley.
