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.

Port was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2016 for the rape and murder of four young men at his home in Barking, east London. Matovu pleaded guilty to supplying Port with mephedrone and GHB but denied knowing what he planned to do with it. He was sentenced to 12 months community service
