Honor Blackman is urging James Bond filmmakers to recruit a "black or Asian" actor to succeed Pierce Brosnan.

Despite unconfirmed reports Brosnan has been reinstated as 007 after being ditched from the franchise, Black - who played PUSSY GALORE in GOLDFINGER - is adamant the spy series needs a drastic change.

She tells website PAGESIX.COM, "I think they should go for a black or Asian Bond this time. It would give the films more zip."
