British actress Charlotte Kirk has said she is auditioning for a “deadly, brilliant and complicated” role in the new Bond film.
Kirk, 30, said Los Angeles Magazine that she couldn’t comment on the potential part, adding, “If I told you, I would have to kill you.”
But the London-based actress has made no secret of her desire to follow in the footsteps of Ursula Andress, Grace Jones and Halle Berry. The last actress to star alongside Daniel Craig, in his final Bond film, was Lea Seydoux, who played Madeleine Swann.
“I can confirm that Charlotte would definitely accept a role in Bond,” her spokesperson said. The mirror in April.
“With Charlotte’s award-winning roles, her infamous curves and her great screen appearance, it’s only natural that she should position herself as a favorite for Bond.
“Charlotte is currently the number one action woman on the movie scene – her last film The Lair was number one at the US box office for an action-fiction thriller.”

Bond producers have yet to confirm who will take the reins from Daniel Craig.
The current favorite is James Norton, followed by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Henry Cavill.
The movie – ‘Bond 26’ – won’t hit our screens until 2025 at the earliest.
Kirk is known for her role in the 2018 film Ocean’s 8, opposite Sandra Bullock, and the 2016 sci-fi thriller Vice, starring Bruce Willis.
She is also known for overthrowing two powerful Hollywood executives, whom she dated and later won roles in their films.
Kirk at 25 had an affair with Ron Meyer, the then 76-year-old former vice president of NBCUniversal, and at 21 with Warner Bros. chairman Kevin Tsujihara, who was 55 at the time.

She also dated Australian billionaire James Packer in 2013.
The two Hollywood men used their power to help Kirk land mostly small roles in forgotten movies.
In March 2019, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Tsujihara had entered into a relationship with Kirk in 2013; the news led to Tsujihara’s subsequent ousting.
Meyer was ousted from the company in August 2020, after 25 years, when news of her affair with Kirk broke.
In 2017, Kirk met director Neil Marshall, a fellow Brit who had directed films such as Dog Soldiers and Hellboy, as well as episodes of Game of Thrones and Westworld.
The pair have become objects, and Marshall, now 53, and Kirk frequently work together.
Marshall and Kirk’s ex, Joshua Newton, was accused of trying to extort Meyer, which led to him turning himself in to police and then being fired over the matter.
Marshall strongly denied being behind a plot to blackmail Meyer.
“The allegations about myself, Ron Meyer and NBC/Universal are nothing but lies based on lies,” Marshall said in a statement to Vanity Fair.
“What we have here is a witch hunt, pure and simple, perpetrated by overprivileged men in positions of power, aided by friends of equal status and unethical, fueled by headlines like the ones we have seen these last days, and executed against the woman I love, my fiancee Charlotte Kirk.
