Could the next James Bond be a Jane?

British actress Gillian Anderson has tweeted a photo of herself in full 007 garb, with the caption: "It's Bond. Jane Bond."

'The X-Files' star has also thanked those who have voiced their support for her to fill the role.

It comes as rumours abound as to who will replace Daniel Craig, who has reportedly turned down almost €100m to return as the famous secret agent.

Another name being mentioned for the role is Jamie Bell.

The actor, who is best known for playing 'Billy Elliot', is said to be in the running.

He recently worked with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli in 'Film Stars Don't Die'.

The list of names to potentially play the spy is also said to include actor Idris Elba and 'Homeland' star Damian Lewis.
