Lashana Lynch, the highly anticipated actress of the first black woman, James Bond, celebrated the breaking of her land at a stellar Hollywood awards ceremony, “proudly being able to fly our huge Jamaican flag as a courtesy 00 agent MI6.”
The British actress, who starred as the pilot and proud single mother Maria Rambo in “Captain Marvel,” is shaking off her Bond legacy as 00 agent nominee in “No Time to Die” in April. The film was Daniel Craig’s last 007.
Although Bond has previously had strong roles, including stars such as Grace Jones and Halle Berry, Lynch is the first black female agent of the 60-year-old franchise, who already has an elite 00 status, and enjoys 007 status when Bond leaves the British intelligence service MI6.
Lynch blows up at Essence’s star, Black Woman, at a Hollywood awards ceremony. Receiving the first award at the glamorous Beverly Hills Bash on Thursday, Lynch said, “It scared me to know that there are little black women around the world.
What I do … But I soon realized that with my work I had a wonderful chance to talk to people I care about. This was a privileged play by Maria Rambo and Single black motherfucker.
Speaking to her mother, Sonia, sitting in the crowd, she said of her “Captain Marvel” role, “The character is a love letter to you and the hundreds and thousands of single black mothers who go above and beyond to raise children.
So to you and to all the wonderful black women here today, you have really elevated me and led you.
“The real core of humankind falsehoods to the detriment of black women,” she said before live the 007 themes as she left the period.
Others honored at the Hollywood event Essence Black Woman include filmmaker Melina Matsuo Gass, who directed Beyonce’s “Creation” and “Lemonade” and “Queen & Slim” starring “Bose” and actress Nancy Nash.
