Trina Parks says she is against the potential plot twist - insisting the Bond movies have already done huge amounts for Hollywood diversity, she said in an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV.
Parks famously made history as the first black Bond girl appearing in Diamonds Are Forever as assassin Thumper alongside Sean Connery in 1971.
Speaking from her New York home, the 72-year-old actress said: 'Lashana is a great actress, but I don't really agree with her becoming 007. It is not about her color, but just because Bond, the spy code-named 007, was written by Ian Fleming as a man.'
'So a black James Bond sure, I don't see why that could not be a move, but as a man. Miss Bond doesn't have the same ring to it.
'I think that there are lots of movies already where you have a woman taking center stage, defeating men - and I like that.
'But I don't feel that the James Bond franchise has to go there.'
I think what most people are concerned about is that the movie makers have succumbed to the illusion that progressive Leftist themes sell movie tickets. They still don't understand that the only BIG movies of the last ten years are the ones with the least amount of Leftism on screen.
