Diane Kruger, who has played the role of a spy in The Operative, says she had a dream of playing female James Bond in films. In an interview to The I Paper, Kruger spoke about her upcoming film and her dream of being the first woman to portray 007 – who is currently played by Daniel Craig, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
She said: “I always thought it must be so cool to be James Bond. But the realities of being a spy are closer to what we did. It’s cool, but I don’t dream about it anymore.”

Kruger also insisted that away from the cameras she is a very “introverted” person and it is her acting career that has forced her to be more “outgoing” to her benefit.
“I’m very introverted, in my real life, to a fault. I think I can appear cold or standoffish. I really have to force myself to be outgoing. Acting has, for me, been the opportunity to identity with someone else, be someone else,” she added.

Back in February, it was reported that Diane Kruger and Eric Bana signing up to star in spy thriller The Operative. Things appear to have quickly changed for the film, with word that Martin Freeman will now instead join Kruger instead of Bana.
Deadline’s report on the latest casting makes no mention of Bana, instead putting Freeman in the role of Mossad agent handler Thomas. He’s summoned from Germany to Israel when his former operative turned rogue spy Rachel (Kruger) vanishes while attending her father’s funeral in London.
Her mission, at least before she disappeared, was to work against Iran’s nuclear programme and the authorities are concerned she may now pose a threat. Thomas will have to retrace her steps and try to protect her.
