Damian Ranks as a 007 Contender, at Least with Vogue
by Katie Berrington and Lauren Milligan | British Vogue | August 13, 2018
British Vogue released a list of dream boys they’d like to see play the next James Bond.
As speculation amped up last week about who will follow in Daniel Craig’s 007 footsteps, Idris Elba sent the rumour mill into overdrive with an “Is he? Isn’t he?” Twitter tease.
“My name’s Elba, Idris Elba,” he posted, sparking mass excitement amongst his followers, before appearing to dismiss the widespread claims by advising people not to believe “the hype”.
Here, we chart the contenders – the likely and the left-field – who could step into the famous spy’s sleek tuxedo for future incarnations of the franchise (when Craig does indeed hang up his Speedos for good).
#3 – Damian Lewis
One of the older candidates in the running at 47, the actor has the gentlemanly air down pat and was an early front runner for the next Bond – particularly thanks to the fervent following he garnered after his acting skills were brought to the masses in Homeland.
London Power 100 is an annual list of the 100 most influential people in London. Our inaugural list will include a wide variety of high achievers and power players in the city and from the city of London!
The aim of the list is to identify who the movers and shakers in the capital are. The list will be under the watchful eye of celebrated lawyer Nicholas Taylor. Taylor will be in charge of curation of names and overseeing the judging process which begins shortly after the new year.
London Power 100 was founded by Witham based businessman Lewis Drazen. The executive team consists of Viktor Tokarev, Tina Hansen and Amara Khan.
