'Spectre' star Naomie Harris says the secrecy surround the next James Bond movie makes her feel as though she is actually part of British intelligence service MI6

Naomie Harris says the secrecy around the next James Bond movie makes her feel like a real member of MI6,

The 'Spectre' star is constantly quizzed on whether Daniel Craig - who has played 007 four times - is leaving the spy franchise but she said the future of the franchise is guarded so closely she isn't even allowed to reveal if she has signed up to the next movie.

Asked whether she'll play Eve Moneypenny for a third time, she said: "Honestly, it's like being in MI6 for the actors, too. I'm not allowed to say a single thing."

If Craig, 48, does hang up his tuxedo British actors Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba have been touted as his replacement.

And while Naomie remained tight-lipped on her future with Bond, she has been busy elsewhere filming another spy thriller 'Our Kind of Traitor' with Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgard and Damian Lewis.

The 39-year-old actress also thinks big roles are going to older actors more often because Hollywood is realising their worth.

She said: "You just have to look at the actresses who are doing well now and almost all of them are older, whether it's Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon or Naomi Watts. I think there has been a real shift: people have realised that it's the age and the experience that makes someone a lot more interesting to watch. And how could you ever tire of watching Meryl, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy or Stellan Skarsgard?"
