“To be here knowing that we’re representing my culture in a franchise that’s been running for so long blows my mind, but I feel proud that we’re able to employ such beautiful people in Jamaica, and include them in this British movie,” Lashana said in the introductory interview for Bond 25. “We’re able to mesh the two cultures much like I grew up doing – I’m British and Jamaican at the same time, and now I get to show that on screen.”
