    Lashana Lynch is "scared" for the future of cinema and theatre

    The 'No Time to Die' star admits she fears for her own future and that of her fellow actors and actresses and has called for more government support for the arts industry


    Speaking to GQ magazine after she was named Breakthrough Actress at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards, she said: "I’m scared for cinema and theatre. It’s affecting actors. We’re being told to go and seek other avenues, which is probably the most disrespectful thing you can tell a creator ... I think it’s ludicrous. You wouldn’t tell anyone else, in any other sector, to seek other work. We’re the bottom of the food chain, yet somehow ended up being the industry that saved minds during lockdown. If it wasn’t for streaming platforms and long series and old films and TV, I don’t think we would have been able to say we were OK. So that’s maddening. We can’t continue to trust the government to do the right thing."

    Meanwhile, Lashana previously revealed she wanted to represent the black community authentically in the upcoming Bond flick, in which she stars as Nomi.

    She said: "A character is too slick, a cast-iron figure?

    "That's completely against what I stand for. I didn't want to waste an opportunity when it came to what Nomi might represent. I searched for at least one moment in the script where black audience members would nod their heads, tutting at the reality but glad to see their real life represented. In every project I am part of, no matter the budget or genre, the black experience that I'm presenting needs to be 100 per cent authentic."
