James Bond's character "was conceived as a man," and the thought of a woman being cast in the role in the future is an example of "the world has gone mad," according to former Bond girl Valerie Leon.

"The world has gone mad," Leon, 75, who starred in "The Spy Who Loved Me" in 1977 and "Never Say Never Again" in 1983, told "Good Morning Britain," per Fox News. "I'm dressed in black. I am in mourning that we're here to talk about Bond being a woman.

"He was conceived as a man. Ian Fleming created him as a man."

Leon argued why would Bond movie makers "change something that's been so successful for years?"

She also said movie goers would not buy a woman Bond.

"He's a fantasy," she added. "So many men have wanted to be Bond and women have wanted to be with Bond. How can people fantasize about a woman as Bond? Men aren't going to go for a woman as a killer or an assassin."

There are leaks coming from the upcoming "No Time to Die" that the next Agent 007 will be played by actress Lashana Lynch.

"There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says 'Come in 007,' and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful, and a woman," a Bond insider has claimed, per Fox News. "It's a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond, but he's been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman."
