Every man, at some point in his life, wishes he could be James Bond. And with the news that Daniel Craig may well be out as 007, there are a whole bunch of actors from London to Paris wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Frédéric Chau become the Seventh James Bond?
Chau’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Serial (Bad) Weddings (2014), Lucy (2014) and Il reste du jambon ? (2010). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Chau now is – what next?

- It would give Frédéric Chau a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
