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 in London wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could John Boyega become the Seventh James Bond?
Boyega’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in The Last Jedi (2017), The Force Awakens (2015) and 24 (Live Another Day) (2014-2014). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Boyega now is – what next?

- It would give John Boyega a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
