London (ANI): Model and actress Zara Adams is hoping to create history in the James Bond franchise – by becoming the first ever Muslim Asian Bond girl. Adams, who recently launched her new publication, the Talent Magazine, is auditioning for the part for the upcoming Bond movie "Quantum of Solace".
"The casting agent and the producers liked my pictures and other work and have invited me for audition," The Sun quoted her, as saying. "I don't know too much about the part at the moment, but it is a good character role as one of the Bond girls with about 15-20 minutes of screen time. Working with names like Marc Foster and Daniel Craig, among others, will be an amazing experience," she added.
The single 25-year-old also said that being the first Muslim Asian Bond girl would be the "biggest thing I could achieve. And to be on a James Bond film as a Muslim Asian woman, would not just open up doors for me but break down barriers for other people as well," she said.
Adams said that while landing the role will be a major career boost for her, the move would surely upset her parents. "I had a strict upbringing and I didn't even see my first movie until I was at university in Edinburgh, which funnily enough was a Bond film," she said. "I am getting a lot of support from my friends who are extremely excited about this but my parents aren't really happy about me auditioning for this part.
"But I believe you have to choose your own path in life. And if I'm happy, eventually they'll come round to it as they always do," she added.
