Luke Evans says he’s not sure James Bond fans “care what he’s doing in the bedroom”.

Luke Evans said he wasn’t sure viewers would care “what James Bond does in the bedroom” while discussing the possibility of a gay actor playing the character.

That Beauty and the Beast star is often cited as one of the names in the running for the role of secret agent following Daniel Craig’s departure from the franchise.

Here you can read some of the actors who are rumored to be up for the role.

Speak with bustleEvans – who last year said he would “seize a chance” to play Bond – was asked if audiences were ready for a gay actor to play 007.

“I don’t know what the current temperature of the audience is, if they care enough about what James Bond is doing in the bedroom,” replied the Welsh actor.

“I don’t think it’s really important to the character, if I’m being really honest.”

Speculation as to which actor will replace Craig in the franchise has increased since the heavily delayed release of no time to die last year.

Many have suggested that someone other than a straight white male will play the role next.

Producer Barbara Broccoli has dismissed the notion that Bond could be a woman but said the actor will be “a British male of any ethnicity”.

However, in a recent interview, John Boyega admitted he would be “very surprised” if a black man took on the role.

The Star Wars actor, who has long been one of the names in the mix, said: “If you’re black I don’t know how that goes.

“I don’t necessarily think so, but if they do, it’s very surprising to me.”
