The actress, 31, who will now be known by Bond's old code name, looked every inch the MI6 agent as she donned a navy spy suit and wore a gun strapped to her leg.

Lashana transformed into character by also sporting a pair of chunky black worker boots and wearing an earpiece, no doubt to make communication with the intelligence team easier.

In what's been called a 'popcorn-dropping moment', British star Lashana, will be given Bond's licence to kill in the 25th movie in the franchise, currently being shot in both Italy and the UK.  

Pierce Brosnan thinks a female Bond would be 'exhilarating'

Pierce Brosnan thinks a female Bond would be 'exhilarating' Pierce Brosnan - who played James Bond between 1994 and 2005 - thinks it would be "exhilarating" to have a female Bond. The 'World Is Not Enough' star - who played James Bond between 1994 and 2005 - would love to see a woman take on the role and quipped that the guys should "get out of the way". Asked about the prospect of a female Bond, he said: "Yes! I think we've watched the guys do it for the last 40 years, get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there. I think it would be exhilarating, it would be exciting. I don't think that's going to happen with the Broccolis.

And Lashana Lynch appeared to confirm the speculation as she was pictured on the set of the latest Bond film – No Time To Do – in Italy on Wednesday. The actress, 31, who will now be known by Bond ’s old code name, looked every inch the MI6 agent as she donned a navy spy suit and wore a

Lashana Lynch will take on the iconic spy role of 007 in Bond 25, according to reportsCredit: Getty Images - Getty. She will introduce the Captain Marvel star , 31, as the current 007 's replacement within the secret service, while a decision has yet to be made who will take over from Craig in Bond 26.

However, it was previously suggested that she's not the new Bond, but a new character who takes over his secret agent number after he leaves MI6.

The story begins with Bond retired in Jamaica. But spymaster M – played by Ralph Fiennes – calls him back in desperation to tackle a new global crisis.

A movie insider said: 'There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says 'Come in 007', and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman.

'It's a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he's been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.

'Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don't work on a brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning.'

British actress Lashana Lynch is set to be part of a ‘popcorn-dropping moment’ when she makes her appearance in the next James Bond film alongside Daniel Craig. According to reports the actress will be introduced to audiences as 007 at the start of the film following Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s rewrite of

The source added that the phrase 'Bond girls' is now forbidden, saying: 'We were all told that from now on they are to be addressed as 'Bond women'.'

Waller-Bridge, who wrote the BBC comedy Fleabag and the female-led thriller Killing Eve, was recruited to ensure the 57-year-old franchise moved with the times. She said: 'There's been a lot of talk about whether or not Bond is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women.

'I think that's b******s. I think he's absolutely relevant now. [The franchise] has just got to grow. It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesn't have to. He needs to be true to his character.' 

Lashana had a breakthrough role as the fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel, released earlier this year.

Originally from Hammersmith, West London, she made her debut in the 2011 drama Fast Girls, has appeared in Silent Witness and Death In Paradise and was a regular cast member on the short-lived 2015 BBC show Crims. 

New Bond film gives ancient Italian town £10m boost

New Bond film gives ancient Italian town £10m boost An ancient Italian town is set to receive a £10m boost after James Bond's vintage Aston Martin screeched around its narrow alleys for the next 007 movie. Matera, which was first settled in the 10th millennium BC, hosted Bond's trademark silver DB5 as it took tight corners and careered down steps in scenes from No Time To Die. Motorbikes have been leaping over stone walls, filmed by drones hovering overhead.

She was last in Ireland to visit her ex-boyfriend Greg. And Amber returned to the Emerald Isle for the first time since their split as she supported her Love Island co- stars at the Boohoo Ambassador Party.

Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman . So technically Lashana isn’t replacing Daniel Craig (so you can breathe now, Barbra Broccoli ), but she will have And though there still leaves the question of who will portray the next Bond , Phoebe wants everyone to know

She also played Rosaline Capulet in the American period drama series Still Star-Crossed, set after the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.

The source said: 'Lashana is absolutely brilliant and Phoebe's script is as sharp and funny as you would expect. This Bond pays tribute to some of the earlier films with a lot of humour.'

Indeed, one photograph taken on set shows Lashana in a safari suit similar to the one Roger Moore famously wore when he played 007.

'This is a Bond for the modern era who will appeal to a younger generation while sticking true to what we all expect in a Bond film,' the source added. 'There are spectacular chase sequences and fights, and Bond is still Bond but he's having to learn to deal with the world of #MeToo.'

So hopefully the script will be the least of the problems for a film that has already been hit by the replacement of original director Danny Boyle, injury to Craig, and a crew member getting hurt in an explosion on set.     

More Than Three Quarters Of Bond Fans Don't Want A Woman To Play The Spy

More Than Three Quarters Of Bond Fans Don't Want A Woman To Play The Spy Despite Pierce Brosnan and Cillian Murphy's backing Despite support from high-profile James Bond-adjacent figures and the excellent prospect of Gillian Anderson getting stuck into the part, it seems that the idea of a Bond played by a woman hasn't gained much traction with Bond fans.

In total, 77 per cent of all respondents said no to the idea of a woman playing Bond.

Elsewhere, Bond woman Léa Seydoux was consoled by director Cary Fukunaga as she filmed scenes for the upcoming spy thriller.

The actress, 34, looked upset and held her head in her hands in-between shooting action-packed scenes on the beach.

Léa, who has reprised her role as the tenacious Dr Madeleine Swann which she first played in 2015 film Spectre, was comforted by Cary.

It is unclear whether Léa was rehearsing upcoming scenes or was overwhelmed with emotion as she stood on the rocky beach. 

MailOnline has contacted Léa's representatives for comment.    

While the man himself, Daniel, was not present at filming on Wednesday,  Dr Swann and Bond's romance, sparked in Spectre, appears to still be going strong in No Time To Die, with the pair sharing a passionate kiss during filming last week.

No Time To Die is the 25th chapter in the 007 franchise, which will see Daniel make his final outing as the iconic Secret Secret Service agent.

Stunt doubles and drivers have been a regular presence in Matera over recent weeks, with a second unit filming chase scenes around the town's winding, narrow streets.

Bond's iconic car, a vintage DB5 Aston Martin, has also been a prominent feature since the production landed in Italy, with the vehicle either being pursued, or finding itself in hot pursuit of other vehicles throughout many of the new film's latest scenes.

No Time To Die is co-written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge who was brought on board to sprinkle her magic on the script for the 25th movie in the film franchise based on Ian Fleming's hit novels.

The film had previously been given the working title Shatterhand, however the title has since been changed to match Bond's more iconic film titles.

Production finally kicked off in April of this year, though it had already been delayed by several months following the departure of original director Danny Boyle.

The film, which also stars Naomie Harris, Lashana Lynch, Ana de Armas, Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw, sees Rami Malek take on the role of an as-yet-untitled villain. 

But it has suffered a turbulent production process in recent months after Craig suffered a nasty ankle injury while filming a separate chase sequence in Jamaica, the spiritual home of Bond creator Ian Fleming.

The actor underwent an operation followed by two weeks of rehabilitation in May, causing major delays to the long awaited production.
