Idris Elba has denied rumours that he will replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.
Speaking to ITV's Lorraine the Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom star said that he doesn't understand why people would focus on 007's race, "I've always detested the phrase 'Black Bond', I just don't understand it.
"We don't say 'White Bond', we just say 'Bond', so it suddenly becomes a black man and he's a 'Black Bond'. So I hate that phrase – and it's a rumour that's gotten out of control basically – but that's all it is. There's no truth to it whatsoever."
