1. Lara Croft
Rich, adventurous, has lots of guns, looks good in shorts and kicks ass. Plus you get played by Angelina Jolie.
PS No nitpicking and saying she’s a game character, actually …

2. Simon Templar, the Saint
Not that I fancy a sex change, but I’d love the Saint’s lifestyle. Suave, sophisticated and rich, the Saint gets to whizz off to all kinds of exotic locations, solving crime and righting wrongs. Has a nice line in quips, and drives a cool sports car.

Looking good in tight leather has to be even better than looking good in shorts. Also kicks ass. And you get to be played by Halle Berry.

4. Lulu in Pandora’s Box
I can’t say I fancy meeting a sticky end, as Lulu does, but Louise Brooks is just so enchanting in this film. That iconic bob, that luminous smile … I’m not normally one for remakes, but cross Lulu with Catwoman and you’d have one hell of a movie …

5. Wichita in Zombieland
I LOVE zombie movies, and this one is ace. All the characters blow away zombies with glee, guns, and whatever resources they can lay their hands on. Beats being a romantic heroine.

6. Velma Kelly in Chicago
I love the 1920s. Velma has a cool haircut (rather like Louise Brooks’), wears … well not very much sometimes, sings some very sexy songs, and quite literally gets away with murder. What a gal. Much more interesting than wimpy Roxy.

7. James Bond
About time he became a she though. Women can run around shooting baddies, driving fast cars and wrecking Moscow just as well as any man.

8. Any Bond Villain
I rather fancy having hordes of henchmen, a hidden luxury lair, and an evil smirk. In fact, I’ve always thought being the baddie would be much more fun. Unlike every other Bond villain, I wouldn’t make the mistake of talking too much and giving him the chance to escape my evil clutches. I’d just shoot him myself. Job done. Not much chance of sequels though.

So which movie character would you like to be? Are you a goodie or a baddie?
