The one and only Grace Jones, who was a Bond girl herself in the memorable role of May Day in 1985’s “A View to a Kill,” has apparently dropped out of appearing in the upcoming “Bond 25”.
A report in The Sun indicates the 70-year old actress and singer was set to make a surprise cameo in the new film starring Daniel Craig. Jones reportedly received a red carpet welcome and posh living quarters situated close to Pinewood Studios to make her feel more comfortable.
However when she got to set and reportedly learned her role was a lot smaller than she initially was led to believe, she apparently got rather angry and quit right there on the spot.
None of the publication’s report has been confirmed by anyone at the studio and Jones’ involvement was never officially confirmed. If true, her appearance would have been a nice nod to the franchise but is unlikely to have any impact on the production which is currently shooting in the UK.
Cary Joji Fukunaga helms this fifth and final outing of Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond. The film opens April next year.
