Actress Lashana Lynch, in the cast of No Time To Die in a major role, talks about the insults she received on social media for her role.
The mother of idiots, it is known, is always pregnant, and her children often hide behind the anonymity of the keyboards. It was also the actress who paid for it Lashana Lynch, which plays an important role in No Time to Die, that of agent Nomi, who will inherit James Bond’s license to kill while he is in exile, which in practice qualifies her as first 007 woman. As soon as there was talk of this last July, trolls and haters immediately broke out against her. The reason? The fact of being a woman, and black.
Today Lashana Lynch talks about what happened in an interview granted to Harper’s Bazaar:
“I am a black woman: if another black woman had been cast for the role, the same thing would have happened, she would have received the same attacks and the same insults. I just have to remind myself that this role is a real thing and that they are part of something that will be very, very revolutionary. “
Obviously there is a lot of debate on these issues, but the actress believes that, despite all the protests of the most retrograde (and racist) fans, it will go even further on this path. As for the kind of character he wants to play and convey to his own community, Lashana Lynch – Londoner of Jamaican origins, we also saw her in Captain Marvel in the role of a driver – she has clear ideas:
“A too cool character and a strong figure? This goes against all my ideas. I didn’t want to waste the opportunity, as far as the performance of Nomi is concerned. I looked for at least a moment in the script where the black audience could agree, disapproving of reality but happy to see his real life represented. In every project I am a part of, whatever the budget and genre, the black experience I present must be 100% authentic. “
We are curious to see the actress at work in No Time to DIe, which we hope to see in the cinema, as announced, on April 2, 2021.
