London: Actress Joanne Froggatt, who plays Anna Bates in TV show 'Downton Abbey', has hinted that she has auditioned for the 24th 'James Bond' film.

The 34-year-old star said she would suit the supporting characters of Q and M in the spy series more than the Bond girl, reported Daily Express.

"I can't comment really on that one," said the actress, when asked if she has auditioned for a role in the film.

"Who wouldn't like to be a Bond girl? I am not the Bond girl type. I would probably be more a Q or an M... We'll see. I don't know," she said.

Q was portrayed by actor Ben Whishaw, while actress Judi Dency played M in the last Bond film 'Skyfall'.
