In Q & A, a weekly feature of Fantastic Fangirls, we ask our staff to tackle a simple question — then open the floor to comments.
Who’s your favorite Bond, real or imagined?
Anika: Michelle Yeoh.
Caroline: Daniel Craig is my guy. I know there are problems people have with the last couple movies but I am, like, literally not capable of processing them. They are my (dingey, grey, English) happy place.
Margot: Bashir. Julian Bashir. I love Star Trek DS9, and I love ridiculous holodeck episodes, and Our Man Bashir is delightful and wonderful and such a fun homage to the Bond franchise. And Julian looks great in a tux.
Sam: I’ve been rewatching most of the Bond films with my friend who’s a Bond superfan, which has been a fun experience. My favorite actual Bond is prooooobably Daniel Craig, but also I love Goldeneye way more than I should. Also it was the beginning of the Dame Judi Dench era, and tbh she’s been a highlight of most of the Bond movies she’s been in. I know her actual background is as a pencil pushing statistician, but I’d like to think she did some field work at one point, and had 00 status.
