AceShowbiz - Jamie Campbell Bower wants to portray a Bond nemesis. After playing the antagonist Vecna in the fourth season of "Stranger Things", the 33-year-old actor has revealed that he hopes to antagonize James Bond in a future 007 movie.
"I'm gonna be honest with you Josh, I'm gunning for James Bond. Not to play Bond, but to be a villain in Bond," Jamie said to Josh Horowitz on the "Happy Sad Confused" podcast.
Jamie explained that he wanted to be the first actor under the age of 30 to play a 007 nemesis and was jealous that Rami Malek got to star as villain Safin in "No Time to Die". He recalled, "And I remember before Rami did the film, I was like, 'I'm gonna be the first person under 30 to do it' and then Rami comes along and just like kills it and I'm like, 'Dammit, I wanted to do that.' "
Jamie has previously discussed how he felt "in charge" playing the sadistic Vecna on the Netflix hit "Stranger Things". He said, "As an actor, you're sometimes fortunate enough to be given a position of power within scenes. It taps into a very interesting side of the human psyche, which is, 'I'm in charge now.' "
"It's quite an enjoyable moment to go through - obviously there were times where I felt bad for my fellow team members. So we'd make sure they knew that it was me inside there, a gentle touch of an arm or just to look in their eye to say, 'It's me by the way, it's OK.' "
