"The reality was I got a call from Barbara [Broccoli, the film’s producer] and Daniel saying, ‘We like your work, can you come in and help us?'," she explained in an interview at Southbank Centre with The Guilty Feminist podcast host Deborah Frances-White.
"There wasn't ever really a conversation about can you come in and help us with ‘the ladies'. They said [producers and Craig], 'It will be your take, can you come aboard and help us polish the script?'
"The characters were there, the story was there, it was just really exciting to be a part of it. There was a bunch of writers, I was a small contribution to this thing."
In No Time To Die, Craig’s final film as Bond, his character will be introduced to Lashana Lynch, the franchise’s first-ever black and female 007. The film, which is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga is the 25th Bond film in the franchise.
Early last year, Waller-Bridge spoke to Deadline about the relevance of the film to today’s audience, saying, "There's been a lot of talk about whether or not [the 'Bond' franchise] is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women."
"I think that's bollocks," she continued. "I think he's absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow. It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesn't have to. He needs to be true to this character."
