Quantico star Priyanka Chopra, who’s on the cover of Complex laying in an ocean of money, wouldn’t be satisfied just being a Bond girl.
In her June/July cover story, Chopra talks about some of the typecasting she faces as an Indian actress—“I was very sure I did not want to be the stereotype of what Indian people are seen as, which is Bollywood, and henna,” she says. “That’s all great! It’s what we are, and I love it... but that’s not all we are.”
Chopra also challenges the idea of Bond being a British dude (hello, Idris Elba), alluding to how people love to dream cast gorgeous women in the secondary role of Bond’s love interest. Via Complex:
In another lull between takes, conversation turns toward her appetite for stunts. She’s thrilled for her upcoming role as the icy villain in Baywatch, a part originally envisioned for a man (“another barrier broken,” she winks), and everyone agrees she’d make a great Bond Girl. “I get that all the time,” she says with faux exasperation. “But fuck that—I wanna be Bond.”
