(NEW YORK) — X-Files star Gillian Anderson sent fans into a tizzy, after she retweeted a poster of her standing in the rifled barrel backdrop made famous at the start of every James Bond film.
“It’s Bond. Jane Bond,” she captioned the post, which was retweeted nearly 13 thousand times, and liked more than 25 thousand since Saturday. “Thanks for all the votes! (And sorry, don’t know who made poster but I love it!),” Anderson wrote, adding, “#NextBond.”

Incidentally, it’s not known who will replace Daniel Craig as 007, if and when he hangs up his holster, though Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy, and Idris Elba have been rumored replacements.
Still, Anderson’s post has inspired a thousands-strong online petition and a hashtag #GillianForBond.
