The Last Christmas and Game of Thrones star has revealed she'd jump at the chance to play the first female 007, even if it was the "naffest James Bond in the world".

Emilia Clarke would happily become the first female James Bond.

The Last Christmas actress and Game of Thrones star is a huge fan of the 007 franchise and revealed she'd love the chance to be the first woman to portray the spy once Daniel Craig leaves the franchise.
