He already missed out on the opportunity once and is now trying his level best to not let that happen once again.

“When people meet me in America and hear my English accent, they say, ‘You should play James Bond.” he continued, “I know, and everyone here knows, I will never be James Bond, but playing a Bond-like Playmobil character felt much more likely!”

He went on to say that he does not see himself playing James Bond and believes that people agree with him. He also added that he thinks the closest he can get to playing this character is to be a toy version of him.

“I like playing the goodie, but I don’t really look to play a good guy or a bad guy. I like playing people who are different to me – the further away they are from home, the more fun it is to play.” He added “But James Bond would be the ultimate dream. The first film I had, when I was seven years old, was James Bond. That was all I had on my mind.“

The star talked about how if he were to play James Bond, it would be quite an emotional full-circle moment for him as his first movie when he was 7, was also a James Bond movie.
