Olivia Colman really wants a part in Bond 25 and we would love to see this become a reality.

The actress admitted shes trying to pull as many strings as she can to nab herself a role in the highly-anticipated flick and is desperate for her pal Phoebe Waller-Bridge – who has been working on the script – to write in a cheeky part for her.

Trust me, Ive tried! Ive asked! the 45-year-old admitted to Entertainment Weekly.

And she might just manage to get her wish because its not the first time shes convinced the Fleabag star to create a role for her.

Indeed, the actress also asked for the talented screenwriter to create her hilarious Godmother role.

I think I begged Phoebe to be in it when she was writing the first [season], Olivia explained. I will be eternally grateful to Phoebe, because she said, “What sort of things do you want to say?”
