The actor, best known for playing Elle Argent in the Netflix series Heartstopper, revealed she’s a fan of the franchise in an interview with the Daily Star Sunday.
“I love James Bond films,” Finney said. “Every film I’ve seen, I’ve always thought, 'I’d love to be that cool, sexy Bond girl’.”
She added: “It has never been done before, so it would be amazing to do it.”
Caroline Cossey, also known as Tula, is a trans model who was an extra in the 1981 James Bond film For Your Eyes Only. It wasn’t known that she was trans, however, until after the film was released.
Earlier this year, Finney was cast in Doctor Who as the character Rose, alongside Ncuti Gatwa (Sex Education) as the Time Lord. They’ll both make their debut on the show in 2023.
Heartstopper was renewed for a second and third season by Netflix in May, a month after the first season was released. Based on the graphic novels by Alice Oseman, the show is a coming-of-age romance which follows the relationship between Charlie Spring (Joe Locke) and Nick Nelson (Kit Connor).
