American star Brighton Sharbino is reportedly set to play the Bond girl in the next edition of “James Bond” franchise. The Internet is buzzing with rumors that the actress best known for her role on the television series The Walking Dead could be cast as the female lead opposite Daniel Craig.
UPDATE 08/08/2020 : This story seems to be false. (read more)
The Youngest Bond girl ever
If she does sign on board Sharbino, who is only 17, would technically become the youngest Bond girl in the franchise's history. Alison Doody, the previous holder of that title, was 18 when she played Jenny Flex opposite Roger Moore's 57-year-old 007 in 1985's A View to a Kill.
“The producers have tried to get Brighton before, but she has never been available because of other commitments,” a source close to the production said about the actress. “The discussions have been going on for some time and they are working out the contract details now.”
