'Bond' Movie Star Lashana Lynch Says Casting Reaction Reminiscent of Segregation


Actress Lashana Lynch says that reactions to her being cast as an MI6 in the next James Bond film No Time to Die was “really mean,” “dark,” sexist, and reminiscent of segregation.

“The response was generally positive, but there were some very personal messages to me, like Insta DMs and Twitter,” Lynch told The Guardian in a recent interview. “And just conversations that my friends had heard or overheard on the [London subway] that were really mean, dark and reminiscent of an age I wasn’t even born in, where women and black people weren’t allowed to move in certain spaces.”

“So it also reminded me about the work that I still have to do to try to change the world in a little way that I know how,” said, who is of Jamaican descent and was born in Hammersmith, London.
