Lashana Lynch is new to the game of espionage as displayed by her promotion to 007 ranks in No Time to Die. Nomi enters the fray after Felix Leiter’s (Jeffrey Wright) meeting with James Bond (Daniel Craig). The freshly minted M16 agent spoke to EUR correspondent Fahnia Thomas about playing the next Bond.
Q: William Shakespeare so eloquently questioned – what’s in a name? How important is a name?
LL: It’s only important if your parents give it weight. My surname is Lynch and nothing from history has weighed me down- I’ve completely turned this into empowerment. I’m reclaiming my time and past and Nomi is doing the same.
Q: How much of Nomi’s confidence do you carry in your day-to-day life?
LL: I carry quite a lot of Nomi’s confidence in my day-to-day life. I come from women of confidence who are bold, opinionated and forthright. I’m Jamaican and we don’t hold back. It would be strange to come from among such powerful women and not have the confidence. Mine is on a hundred to the point where I think it makes some people feel uncomfortable, which is great!
Q: What was the hardest day during stunt and military training?
LL: Days when I thought that I couldn’t do another day of stunts. When you’ve gone through days and days of boxing and footwork…there’s one day that makes you go – no matter how bold I am or confident or ready I am – I don’t know if I can do this for months on end. But you always pull it out of the bag.
Q: Would you like to play agent 007 again?
LL: It would be a shame to say goodbye to Nomi even though we may have to do that often as actors. She’s quite special to me and I believe that she’s going to be special to a lot of people-especially those who look like us.
I’m glad that I don’t know what the future of the franchise is. Due to this, I’m able to be present at this moment and celebrate her at this moment. It’s great if it happens in the future. If not, then I know she came in and left with a bang and that’s good for me.
