BetWay Reveal that Game of Thrones Alumni Richard Madden Has Surged Into Contention In The Betting To Be The Next James Bond
Bodyguard’s Madden backed for Bond
Scottish actor 14/1 from 20/1 to star as next 007
Richard Madden has surged into contention in the betting to be the next James Bond, having been cut to 14/1 from 20/1 with Betway.
The Scot has impressed in his role in the BBC drama Bodyguard, and punters believe he could be in line to take over from Daniel Craig once he gives up the leading role.
Tom Hardy heads the betting at 11/8, ahead of Superman Henry Cavill, Luther’s Idris Elba and The Night Manager’s Tom Hiddleston, who are all priced at 7/1.
Betway’s Alan Alger said “The Bodyguard has been a hit and Richard Madden’s performance in the BBC drama has seen him attract plenty of supporters in the next James Bond market.
The Scottish actor is now 14/1 to play Britain’s much-loved character, having been as big as 20/1, with punters seeing him as a viable candidate to take on the role from Daniel Craig.
Tom Hardy is our warm favourite at 11/8, ahead of a host of famous British actors including Henry Cavill and Tom Hiddlestone who are both 7/1 and James Norton at 10/1.”
