Lashana Lynch Doesn’t Know If 007 Character Nomi Will Return: ‘I Signed Up For One Film’

"At the end of every James Bond film comes a familiar message: James Bond Will Return. It even popped up at the end of No Time To Die, which is significant to note for reasons clear to anyone who’s seen the film. But what currently isn’t know is whether that film’s 007 will return. Lashana Lynch starred alongside Daniel Craig as Nomi, who had a*sumed Bond’s vacated agent number after his retirement, and fought alongside him to take down the villainous Safin. She was a character with clear potential beyond No Time To Die, and very much still on the board at the end of that film – but with the role of James Bond ripe for a reboot, it’s currently unclear if more Nomi stories will be on the way.

Even Lynch still isn’t sure, as she tells Empire in a major new interview. “I signed up for one film and I don’t know if they entirely know where it’s gonna go,” she says. “I genuinely don’t know anything, but it’s exciting to wonder!”

Speaking in the run-up to the release of historical war epic The Woman King, Lynch reflected on what her last major blockbuster role meant to her. “I’m glad that my culture, Jamaica and London, were encapsulated into this one film,” she says of No Time To Die. “Jamaica hasn’t had a reprise in a Bond movie for a long time, so that was an honour, and then to have Phoebe [Waller-Bridge, co-writer] involved was perfect. I’m such a fan of her work.” The Fleabag and k*lling Eve writer was key to finding Nomi’s voice on the screen – confident and capable, but flawed too. “She represents awkward Brit girls like me who have a lot to say, but sometimes don’t really know how to come across,” explains Lynch. “I wanted Nomi to have a little bit of that; still figuring it out. I didn’t want there to be this clean-cut version of the first 007 being a Black woman. I wanted to ensure that she was still trying to be quick on her feet, but also failing in ways and not showing it.”

Here’s hoping there’ll be more Nomi in the future – just because James Bond will return in some other guise, doesn’t mean she can’t come back too.

Lashana Lynch is absolutely an action star, no doubt about that. She was the MVP of Woman King, really good action scenes & alotta charisma.

It may not be 007, but she needs to be in something with some really good action choreographers that know her potential.

Here’s the thing with that. They gave her nothing to do. Make it worse…



the producers of this movie try to have its cake and eat it too. This scene is emblematic of the energy the movie should’ve carried throughout.

But they had to double down and make ole girl from OP look like an actual fu*king agent and just have her appear at parts of the story to not seem like a waste after they marketed her as the new 007.

Meanwhile, they gave the Spanish chick the energy that would’ve made people like ole girl from the op, instead her being a lowkey agro unfu*ked dry bi*ch.

When she came from the roof to snatch the scientist.

I’m like bro, y’all on the same team.

It has great scenes, but from a plot standpoint it does not come together as it should to be as great as it should’ve been.

Straight up I hate James Bond and the evil British Empire. He's the equivalent of Al Queda for Wheight Supremacy. I wouldn't mind seeing him die a cruel and tragic death

No time to die and spectre ruined the Bond character. Not because of some "woke" sh*t but they tried to personalize him too much. They did that sh*t already in casino royale and quantum of solace.

They had Bond running around like a sucker for love in 4 of the 5 movies.

James Bond is an alcoholic sociopath. That is his character. He does not have the capacity to love that much.

Give Lynch a spin off tho. Amazon prime needs content. She can get a streaming show.

I mean why would she? Her character arc died with Daniel Craig's James Bond. Everyone else can come back though. I liked the new "M", Moneypenny, and Q.
