I really wanted to create a really realistic character that was fun and ambitious and witty and all of these things. But I really just wanted to do massive stunts, to be honest. I just wanted to kick people in the face, shoot guns and roll on the ground and get dirty […] I would love to meet her again. I think for a character like that, it would be worth exploring, obviously. However, I think if we never see her again, her introduction to the franchise and the way she comes out is so classy and makes a lot of sense for the franchise and it also sets things pretty well in terms of what I have created for the world. .
She, like many fans, thinks that her role in No time to die It was great, and even if we never see its spin-off, its passage through the franchise will leave its mark, as characters like Nomi and Paloma help to forget the sexist portrayals of mean women and “Bond girls” in previous installments of the British spy.
