London: Actress Emilia Fox says she wants “Luther” star Idris Elba to take over the role of a popular MI5 agent James Bond from Daniel Craig.

The 42-year-old actress said she feels that Elba would be a great 007, reported Digital Spy.

“There are several strong contenders going for Bond but I would like to see Idris (Elba) take over from Daniel Craig. He would be a cool Bond,” she said.

Fox also revealed that she would love to play Bond girl if she gets a chance in future.

“Producers probably think it’s too late for me to be a Bond girl but I would love it,” she said.
