Lashana Lynch will play a character who takes over James Bond's famous secret agent number, 007, in "Bond 25".
The 31-year-old actress is to star as a character who reportedly takes over Daniel Craig's suave spy alter-ego's famous secret agent number when he leaves MI6 in 'Bond 25'.
An insider said: "There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says, 'Come in 007', and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman.
"It's a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he's been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman."
Despite being the new 007, Bond is said to try it on with the character, but she initially declines his advances.
