Actor Luke Evans has thrown his name into the hat to play James Bond.
The Pembrokeshire Murders star would be only the second Welsh 007 after Timothy Dalton.
Asked about the possibility of playing the famous spy, Evans said: “I think I’ve cut my teeth very well in movies I’ve done and I’ve enjoyed every second of it. It’s a phenomenal job, a phenomenal franchise, an incredible role.
"I have to say though, it’s a daunting task for any actor to play the role after Daniel Craig. No one knows what’s happening.
"It’s a very secretive process and it’s a wonderful role. I would jump at the chance, as would many actors in my position, so we shall see.
"It will be an exciting casting moment for the Bond production and I wish whoever gets it the best of luck.”
The star – who has also starred in Beauty and the Beast – is certainly in shape to play the spy.
He recently showed off his chiselled physique after eight months of working out in lockdown.
But he said of the training: "I love my food and I like wine and it's really tough. What I miss most is alcohol. When everyone is having a drink and you can't it stops you going out as much.
"Booze is a nightmare for empty calories and you can't train the day after. Socializing and enjoying a night out — not doing that is the hard bit."
As well as Dalton, there are other Welsh links to 007.
In 2018, a Pontypridd-born granddad was found to be a real-life spy called James Bond who served under author Ian Fleming during the war.
His family made the discovery through World War Two papers.
It showed that former metal worker Mr Bond worked on missions under Fleming, before he was an author.
Mr Bond died aged 89 in 1995 without ever revealing his spy past to his family.
There has been rampant speculation about who will become the next 007 after Daniel Craig confirmed the upcoming No Time To Die will be his final film as James Bond.
Bridgerton star Rege-Jean Page said he is "flattered" to be touted as the next 007.
The actor, 31, shot to fame thanks to his role as the dashing Duke of Hastings in Netflix's period drama.
Tom Hardy and James Norton are also in the running to be the next Bond, if bookmakers are to be believed, along with other British actors including Idris Elba and Richard Madden.
Craig, 53, has said the much-delayed No Time To Die, his fifth outing as 007, will be his last.
