James Bond creator Ian Fleming’s great niece Hermoine reveals she would love for Idris Elba, Richard Madden or Cillian Murphy to replace Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig is currently filming his final yet-to-be titled Bond film.

And the great niece of James Bond creator Ian Fleming, Hermione ‘Hum’ Fleming, has revealed her top choices to replace the actor are Idris Elba, Richard Madden and Cillian Murphy.

The 29-year-old fashion PR told Hello! ‘Idris Elba would make an awesome, sexy, bad-ass Bond. So would Richard Madden from the Bodyguard and Cillian Murphy from Peaky Blinders.’

Hermoine also said she was ‘not convinced’ of a female version of Bond.

‘I’m not convinced a female Bond would work. My great-uncle created Bond as a man.

‘Yet bringing into the mix a similar character to the ruthless assassin, Villanelle in Killing Eve, would be fun,’ she added.

The blonde beauty also spoke about living with temporal lobe epilepsy, which she has had since was 13.

Her condition means she is unable to recall people or events from six months ago.

Hum who is a Young Epilepsy ambassador, spoke about her experience with the condition as part of National Epilepsy Week.

‘It’s sad that I’ll forget most of what’s happened to me. If I don’t see a friend or relative for six months, I probably won’t recognise them.

‘And when I look at photos from the past, I don’t recall being there; it feels as if my image has been super-imposed.

‘One of the most heartbreaking things for me is that I won’t remember happy times with people I love. So when I’m with mum and dad, say, I take tonnes of pictures to capture those precious moments.’

But she added: ‘I appreciate every second. Every day I wake up determined to live it to the full.’

Hermione ‘Hum’ Fleming’s full interview is in this week’s Hello! magazine.
