Cape Town – While the debate on who the next James Bond will be Gillian Anderson threw a spanner in the works.

The X-Files star shared a 007 mock poster with herself on Twitter with the caption: "It's Bond. Jane Bond. Thanks for all the votes! (And sorry, don't know who made poster but I love it!) #NextBond (sic)"

See the Tweet here: 

The poster comes after Gillian was tipped as a fan favourite in the hashtag #NextBond on Twitter. Social media went into overdrive in support of Gillian becoming the first female Bond. 

In a Tumbler Q&A a fan asked Gillian about playing Bond.

She replied that she would love to play the role, but that it probably won't happen.

A number of actors including Idris Elba, Damian Lewis and Tom Hiddleston has been linked to the role since news broke that Daniel Craig would not return as the secret agent.
