The next 007 will reportedly be a black female actor named Lashana Lynch
Every week, the q screen panel convenes to look at the biggest stories happening in the worlds of film and television.
This week, arts and culture journalists John Semley and Tina Hassannia join guest host Rollie Pemberton to discuss reports that a relatively unknown actor named Lashana Lynch — a black woman — has been cast as 007 in the next James Bond film.
The decision is being celebrated as a big step in the right direction for representation in Hollywood, but there's a catch: Lynch is not the new James Bond, she's a separate character and she'll star alongside Daniel Craig in the film. The q screen panel breaks it all down.
