London, November 6 (ANI): Following the historic victory of Barack Obama in the US Presidential elections, Daniel Craig says the world should be prepared to see a coloured 007.

The 40-year-old, who was himself the target of much criticism for being the first blonde Bond, humoured the idea at a press conference before the Italian premier of his latest Bond film, ”Quantum of Solace”.

After Barack Obama’’s victory I think we might have reached the moment for a coloured 007, the Telegraph quoted him as telling the Agi news agency.

I think the role could easily be played by a black actor, because the character created by Ian Fleming in the Fifties has undergone a great deal of evolution and continues to be updated.

The Brit, who admired Obama for his ideals and was happy to see him win, added: I”ve always been a fan of Obama. The political ideas that have emerged from his speeches seem to me to be genuine. (ANI)
