Washington: Legendary British actress Dame Judi Dench says she wants to continue playing secret service agent M in the 007 franchise until she dies.

Speaking at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards, she told BANG Showbiz: "I love Bond. I get to work with Daniel Craig on location and wear some rather sharp suits.

“I`ll do it as long as they ask if I`m alive that long," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

Meanwhile, the 76-year-old is preparing to start filming `J. Edgar` - the biopic of former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover - alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.
