While acknowledging his love for the Bond movies, Stevens suggested that he would rather portray a villain, saying, “I think I’d rather be a villain.” He further expressed his bewilderment at the phenomenon of actors pursuing the role as a sign of ultimate success, stating, “It’s a strange phenomenon that it’s become the thing that must be achieved, because there’s so much else out there that you can get your teeth into.”

As speculation continues regarding the next actor to take on the mantle of 007, Aaron Taylor-Johnson has emerged as a potential frontrunner. Reports suggest that Taylor-Johnson has met with producer Barbara Broccoli about the role and may have even been offered the part, though no official confirmation has been made.
