Naomie Harris wants Daniel Craig to return as James Bond.

The 40-year-old British actress played Eve Moneypenny in the last two 007 films 'Skyfall' and 'Spectre' and although there has been relentless speculation about Craig's future as the fictional spy she is in no doubt about having him back in the tuxedo, gun in-hand.

In an interview with Newsweek, Harris was asked whether or not Daniel would be returning to the franchise, to which she replied: "I don't know ... I would love him back, of course, but I have no inside information, I'm afraid."

Even if Craig does decide to hand back his license to kill after four big screen outings, Harris intends to stay on as Moneypenny in the franchise for as long as producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli want her in the role.

The 'Moonlight' star said: "The Bond family are like my second family. I love being part of that franchise. Absolutely, I'd go back."

Since 'Spectre' was released in 2015, there has been endless rumours about Craig's future as 007 with Tom Hiddleston, Aidan Turner and Idris Elba all tipped to take over the iconic action role.

Craig - who made his debut as Bond in 2007's 'Casino Royale' -finally addressed the rumours himself at the weekend while taking part in the Beyond Bond Q&A session at the New Yorker Festival, and hinted will return as the MI6 secret agent.

He said: "I've got the best job in the world doing Bond. The things I get to do on a Bond movie and the type of work it is, there's no other job like it.

"If I were to stop doing it - just say - I'd miss it terribly. It's one of the most thrilling things as an actor you can do. I love this job. I get a massive kick out of it. And, if I can keep getting a kick out of it, I will."
