‘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.
