Idris Elba makes shock appearance praising Pierce Brosnan's James Bond in pre-fame video from 1995

ACTOR Idris Elba has delighted fans when a pre-fame video reaction to GoldenEye resurfaced on social media.

Ahead of Daniel Craig's final outing, a Bond fan shared a retro video of cinema-goers giving their verdict on GoldenEye.

The film marked the first time Pierce Brosnan played James Bond in 1995.

The unearthed clips showed a young Idris giving his opinion on Brosnan before the Luther star, 49, found fame.

With Idris, constantly being linked to the role, viewers are thrilled to see a young 23-year-old giving his verdict.

When asked about Brosnan, Elba said: "He's got the charm and he's got all the looks, y'know what I mean?

"And he's fit, he's strong and blah, blah, blah.

"Yeah he's alright, he's alright."

Fans were quick to spot the actor about 25 seconds into the footage, which has now gone viral.

One user wrote: "Oh sweet. It's actor, writer, director, DJ, comedian, barista, kickboxer Idris Elba."

Another posted: "I hope he gets the helm as the next 007. Idris is such a bad ass!"

A third simply shared: "Future James Bond."

Daniel Craig's replacement has still yet to be chosen, with Idris at the centre of those rumours.

Idris is the front-funner to replace the British actor, though he has denied having any talks.

Addressing rumours previously, he claimed: "I think it’s more about, 'We just want to have a black guy play James Bond' rather than, 'Idris Elba, the actor, play James Bond.'

"That’s the part I’m like, 'Ugh, come on'.''

Meanwhile, George Clooney ruled out playing 007 but said the Luther star, should take over the role, adding: “He’s elegant. He’d do a great job.”

He told Mark Wright’s Heart radio show: “I’ll be 60 this year so it’s a little late for the Bond thing.

"Bond should also be a Brit, don’t you think?

"I mean properly. It just feels wrong.”

He said: "That's who I would've cast, sure, absolutely but in general, no I don't think I should be.

"The closest thing I've ever done to any kind of hero like that was Batman and we saw how that turned out".

As well as Idris, handsome Scot Richard Madden is also hotly-tipped to take over the reins from Craig after impressing audiences with his performance in Bodyguard.

No Time to Die is out in UK cinemas on September 30.
