    Dominic West claimed that Hannah Graf, the highest-ranking transgender soldier in the British Army, would make a good replacement for Daniel Craig, and suggested this move would be a good idea “because there are a lot of transgender people in the army”.

    English actor and director Dominic West has recently found himself on the receiving end of a barrage of online criticism after he suggested that legendary fictional superspy character James Bond should be played by a transgender actor in the next instalment of the saga.

    West voiced this suggestion during an interview with The Sunday Times Magazine, arguing that Hannah Graf, the highest-ranking transgender soldier in the British Army, would be a fine replacement for Daniel Craig

    "She’s a beautiful blonde girl who could be Bond. That’s actually a brilliant idea. They should have a transgender Bond because there are a lot of transgender people in the army," he claimed.

    However, it appears that not everyone on Twitter shared his vision.

    A number of people also argued that James Bond should be cast just as he was portrayed in the original books by Ian Fleming.
