EXCLUSIVE! Former Bond Girl Jane Seymour backs Cillian Murphy to play Bond

Former Bond Girl Jane Seymour has backed Cillian Murphy to play the next Bond.
The English actress made the comments on the green carpet of the Oscar Wilde party where Pierce Brosnan was being honoured.
The 73-year-old showed her support for the Cork native and gushed: “Oh yeah, definitely” when asked if Cillian would do a good job.

Jane went on to say that she is a fan of “anything he does.”
Answering whether she believes the Oppenheimer star will win Best Actor at the Academy Awards on Sunday, she said: “I think he could, why not?”
The actor will go up against Bradley Cooper (Maestro), Colman Domingo (Rustin), Paul Giamatti (The Holdovers) and Jeffrey Wright (American Fiction) in his category.

The actress also spoke about her experience filming her most recent project Irish Wish.
Jane stars alongside Lindsay Lohan in this romantic comedy which is set in the Emerald Isle.
Speaking about working with the Freaky Friday star, Jane admitted: “I didn’t actually do any scenes with her, everything I did was on a telephone.”

“I met her very briefly before I shot it but I definitely didn’t have her speaking to me, I had a very nice Irish lady from the script team giving me the other lines,” Jane revealed.
“I’ve just come back from New York for the premiere and it’s absolutely fabulous and now Lindsay and I have become quite good buddies.”
“I think I’ll see her a bit, she’s really lovely and she’s really good in it,” she gushed.
