Yasmin Feeney wants to be the first trans Bond girl.

The Heartstopper actress is a huge fan of the spy franchise and would jump at the chance to step in to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond because “it’s never been done before”.

She told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “I would love to be a trans Bond girl or just a Bond girl in general. I love James Bond.

“Every time I watch a Bond film, I feel like I wish I was the badass, sexy Bond girl that never was.”

The 18-year-old star is inspired by Caroline Causey, who appeared as an extra in the 1981 Bond film For Your Eyes Only before being outed as transgender by a newspaper, and was the first trans woman to pose for Playboy in 1991.

Yasmin said: “Hi Caroline. She inspired me to be positive in a way that James Bond never had.

“There are people in the industry who were transphobic, but now they’re not because of the way things are changing. I’d rather not fight it and be a part of it.”

Yasmin – who will appear in the next series of Doctor Who – revealed that she also wants to play a superhero in a Hollywood blockbuster.

She told MailOnline: ‘I would love to be a superhero. I don’t want to choose between Marvel and DC and limit my options, but definitely a superhero, as the first trans superhero ever.”

And the teenage actress admitted that she had already been approached by Hollywood executives.

She teased: “I can’t get into it, but yes, there are things in the plans.”
