Eddie Marsan posted a photo on his Twitter in which he poses in a wetsuit from the ITV drama and with a paddle in his hand. In all seriousness, he announced that he was preparing for the role of 007.
"I've been keeping this quiet for some time but, I'm now so relieved to finally announce… that I've been asked to be the new Bond," he wrote under the photo.
Fans were delighted with Eddie's joke and said that they always saw him as James Bond. Some of them added that he was almost indistinguishable from Sean Connery.
