Veteran actor Julie Walters said she wants to play a Bond villain and has even suggested it to producer Barbara Broccoli. The 67-year-old actor recently worked with Broccoli on ‘Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool’, reported Femalefirst. Directed by Paul McGuigan, the film is based on a memoir written by Peter Turner. The film also stars Annette Bening and Jamie Bell in the lead roles.
“I told her I want to be the new Rosa Klebb (the villain in ‘From Russia With Love’). They should have a baddie woman. I’d love that. What accent would I use? Depends on the baddie- depends on the baddie. Maybe she should be from North Korea. Anyhow, I haven’t heard back,” Julie Walters said.
The actor also revealed she was surprised by the news that there would be a ‘Mamma Mia!’ sequel. “When they told me about that, I thought- but surely they’ve used up all the bloody songs? But they’d done another and it’s really good. I love singing. And we had such a laugh on the first one,” she added.
Julie Walters who received an Academy Award in the Best Actress category for her stint in ‘Educating Rita’ has well-known movies like ‘Billy Elliot’, ‘All My Sons’, ‘A Short Stay in Switzerland’ and others in her kitty. Apart from ‘Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool’, the veteran actor has projects including ‘Paddington 2’, ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ and ‘Mumma Mia! Here We Go Again’ lined up to hit the screens in the coming months.
