Vogue’s Dream Bond Boys – Aug 13, 2018

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.

Wolf Hall meets Shades of Grey

Damian Lewis and Jamie Dornan talk Golf

At the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland this past October, we had a chance to talk golf with a couple of actors: Jamie Dornan, who stars in the uber-hyped movie “Fifty Shades of Grey,” scheduled for release in February; and Damian Lewis, who starred in the hit TV series “Homeland” and the award-winning World War II miniseries “Band of Brothers.” Dornan, 32, is from Holywood in Northern Ireland, the same hometown as world No. 1 Rory McIlroy. Lewis, 43, is from London. Dornan and Lewis played together in the pro-am portion of the Dunhill.

GD: Who were your golf idols growing up?

Lewis: Seve Ballesteros, obviously, was always very exciting to watch when I was a kid. Sir Nick Faldo was winning a lot for us at the time. Sandy Lyle for his 7-iron out of a fairway bunker to win the Masters in ’88. I liked a lot of the big players.

Dornan: Darren Clarke was huge for me. He’s from where I come from, and a few more boys from that part of the world are flying the flag now like Padraig Harrington, who I played with today, which was an absolute treat.
