Naomie Harris, in an interview with Ain’t It Cool News primarily about the movie Moonlight, said she wants to remain as Moneypenny in the 007 film series.
Here’s an excerpt of the interview, conducted by Steve Prokopy, who posted at the website under the name of “Capone.” It concerns what happens to the supporting cast of Bond movies if there’s a change in lead actor.
Capone: Judi Dench certainly was able to work with multiple Bonds over the years, so I’m just wondering does everybody get to stay where they are if he doesn’t decide to go forward?
NH: I would imagine so. I can’t imagine that they’re going to get rid of all of us.
Capone: They’ve done such wonderful things, especially with your character compared to how she’s been portrayed in the past, and I’d hate for that to go away.
NH: Yeah, I know. And I’d hate to say goodbye to Moneypenny as well. I love playing her.
Earlier in the interview, Harris said she filmed her part for Moonlight over three days during a break in the SPECTRE publicity tour. “They were three consecutive days, but I was shooting out of sequence,” Harris told the interviewer.
Harris has previously said, such as in this BBC story, that she wants Daniel Craig to return as Bond.
