007 link is licence to thrill Norton
HAPPY Valley star James Norton has said it is ‘lovely to be part of the conversation’ that he could replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.
Norton is said to be one of the actors in the running as the next 007.
However, the 31-year-old said he hopes Craig will not need a successor just yet, telling ITV’s This Morning: ‘I’m a fan and I hope he does two or three more films.’
Norton has already had his first taste of Hollywood as he will soon be seen in a remake of 1990 film Flatliners, which originally starred Kiefer Sutherland and Julia Roberts, and which is to be released in the UK in September.
Norton will next be seen on the small screen as vicar Sidney Chambers when Grantchester returns for a third series on ITV on Sunday.
