Lara Pulver

Watch an Extended Trailer for BBC America’s ‘Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond’

Biographical drama Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond will premiere as part of BBC America’s Dramaville block beginning January 29. The story follows the life of Ian Fleming, author of the famous James Bond novels, who was also a World War II spy, and a notorious playboy in his own right. (It's said he used a bit of his personal life as inspiration for Bond.)

Previously we had a brief teaser snippet promoting the series that showed us basically nothing, other than that, hey, Dominic Cooper exists and is in this show. Luckily, we now have an extended look at the four-part co-production between BBC America and Sky Atlantic.

Lara Pulver Teases Possible 'Sherlock' Return (Again): Do We Want to See Irene in Series 3?

Lara Pulver, the actress who is best known for her portrayal of dominatrix Irene Adler in Sherlock story A Scandal in Belgravia, remains a frequent topic of conversation among fans and journalists who enjoy the show, despite the fact that the episode in which she featured aired well over a year ago.

It may be due to the fact that general debate over her character never seems to quite die down, but every time Pulver does any sort of public event – whether it’s connected to another series she’s involved in (Da Vinci’s Demons for example) or just a random appearance – she’s always asked about Sherlock and whether or not she’ll be involved in the show again. Given that her portrayal of Irene was somewhat controversial at the time, this isn’t an incredibly odd occurrence, but what is interesting is that her answer seems to keep changing.
