The actor was being interviewed at the Deauville Film Festival, where he was receiving a career achievement award.

Pierce Brosnan, who played James Bond in four films, told The Hollywood Reporter that it's time to "put a woman up there".

Brosnan described Thunberg as "a relaxed young girl".

The 66-year-old Irish actor agrees that the franchise and character will both need to recognize and reflect on how the timesand perhaps the character as well?have changed.

Greta Thunberg is one of many recent climate activists to take on a more apocalyptic approach to pushing out their message, explicitly calling for people to panic over the proposed urgency of environmental issues. In many cases, he said, "it starts with the children".

"You would possibly per chance peep it with Greta, who has such an affect, a highly good affect on young other folks", he acknowledged.

She has also received criticism and abuse for her uncompromising attitude, however.

Brosnan and his wife have made a documentary meanwhile titled "Poisoning Paradise" about the agrochemical industry in Hawaii, where they live.

The film focuses on "the effects of GMOs, (genetically modified organisms), Monsanto, BASF, that type of farming which has a deep effect on the community", he explained. "I don't think that is going to happen under their watch", he said of Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, the daughter of Albert "Cubby" Broccoli, who originally bought the screen rights to the character.

Asked about British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's politics, Brosnan replied: "Between him and Trump, this world is in a sorry state. There could be trouble ahead".

With rumours abuzz that actor Lashana Lynch might be taking the baton from Daniel Craig as the next 007, Pierce Brosnan shared his enthusiastic support over the idea.

He turned into as soon as in Deauville, on the north hover of France, to settle for a homage to his occupation.
