‘Huw Only Live Twice’? BBC broadcaster suggests himself for Bond role

Huw Edwards has suggested the perfect replacement for Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond – himself.

The Welsh broadcaster took to social media to post a reply to a plea by S4C’s short-form content platform Hansh, who asked ‘Pwy di’r James Bond Cymraeg?’ (Who is the Welsh James Bond?)

The post sparked a competition on social media to suggest Huw-related Bond titles, with suggestions including ‘From Llanelli with Love’, ‘The Spy Huw Loved Me’, ‘A V-Huw To A Kill’ and ‘Mold-finger’.

But Huw Edwards is not the first Welshman to play the Bond role. Timothy Dalton who played the spy in James Bond in The Living Daylights (1987) and Licence to Kill (1989) was born in Colwyn Bay.

First Minister Mark Drakeford also appeared in a James Bond spoof video to announce the arrival of car maker Aston Martin in Wales.

Daniel Craig’s final outing as Bond, No Time to Die, opened in cinemas today.

What a pity BBC Wales could not find a space to promote Will Renwick’s amazing feat running all 189 peaks in Wales for the charity Mind Over Mountains…come on Huw think about somebody else for a change why don’t you !!

The next Bond film will be No Time to Dai. So no chance for a Welsh Bond.

Why not? They’ve already had “Dai another Day” as part of the franchise …

Haven’t forgiven Connery for making the anti West Walian Bond film, Never Say Nevern Again.

Bond is an arch symbol of the Brit superiority complex. Find myself rooting for the so called bad guys in some forlorn hope that he, bond, gets bumped off !
