Daisy May Cooper was offered a Fast & Furious role

Daisy May Cooper has revealed she was offered a role in the Fast & Furious franchise.

The star, who has appeared in This Country and Taskmaster, sat down with NME to discuss her wide-ranging career, disclosing that she could have appeared in one entry of the action franchise.

"I'm pretty much trying to take everything I get offered, [but] the offers are drying up quite fast. I was offered a guard in one of the Fast and Furious movies that I couldn't do but it [was] literally two lines," she said, before addressing a rumour linking her to the role of M in the James Bond series.

"I think it was on the radio… they were discussing who they want to be the next M and then somebody mentioned my name," she recalled. "From then it just went like f*****g wildfires. I had the Daily Mail knocking at my parents' door at night."

The latest entry of the action franchise, Fast X, was released earlier this year, with lead star Vin Diesel revealing that a proposed two-part finale could be extended to a farewell trilogy.

Director Louis Leterrier, who will return for Fast 11, recently addressed the actor's comments, saying that the production team and studio will take each film as it comes.

"The one thing about Vin is like when he's on a press line, he will say anything to get out of that press line," said Leterrier. "And I'm kind of like him and go, 'Yeah, sure, we will go to the moon in the next one. Bye.' And then you never forget!"

"Obviously the next one is coming, and then yeah, one movie at a time. I think the one thing that Hollywood keeps reminding us is that it's one step at a time, put one foot forward at a time.

"Let's count our blessings. We're very lucky this movie was well-received and well-loved, people went to see it in a movie theatre and now they're going to see it at home. It's one at a time," he added.

Fast X is available to buy or rent from Prime Video, iTunes, Microsoft Store and more.
