James Bond movies have been a movie for all to enjoy. There's action, there was drama, and almost most importantly, there was that iconic Monty Norman surf rock-inspired "James Bond Theme." However there just hasn't been many females in leading roles.

BUSTLE reporter Kelsea Stahler recently sat down with James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, who stated that a female in the lead role could be possible.

After Spectre, studios are allegedly able to bid for the rights to James Bond. So does that mean we could soon see a female James Bond? Who would suit the role? I've put together a list of female actresses who would play the role superbly.
