Léa Seydoux, a French actress from “Blue Is the Warmest Color” has appeared in two of the high profile James Bond films, “Spectre” and “No Time to Die.”
Now, she answered a mischievous question from the audiences at the Telluride Film Festival whether her character Dr. Madeleine Swann will see the mother of James Bond’s daughter in the next installment of the long-running film franchise.
”After all I’m not dead,” she teased us during a Telluride encounter. “It was James who died, not Madeleine. So, who knows? Maybe I’ll be back.”
“This is like fake news, right? But if we’re serious for a moment, Madeleine drives away with her daughter right at the end because James has saved them. There’ll be a new Bond because Daniel’s Bond died but who’s to say that Madeleine won’t be back?”
Even if it’s up to producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson to make that decision, people would expect the franchise to go with a brand new cast as well as a beloved spy from MI6. But Seydoux left her hopes on future projects, “I haven’t spoken to Barbara about whether or not Madeleine would make an appearance in a future Bond film, a lot has to happen before that stage is reached. This is just idle speculation as we talk on the top of a mountain”
Seydoux is currently in the midst of shooting Bertrand Bonello’s “The Beast,” an adaptation of Henry James’s 1903 novella “The Beast in the Jungle.”
