Motor racing ace Jessica Hawkins starring in new Bond film after answering Facebook ad and nearly giving up on career
30th September 2021

MOTOR RACING star Jessica Hawkins has seen her career take a real shot in the arm – after getting the call to star in the new James Bond film.

The 26-year-old applied on a FACEBOOK job advert to become a stuntwoman after her W Series racing career came to a halt.


That is the female-only support series running alongside Formula 1.

She got the gig to star in the Fast and Furious Live show – and that has now been topped with a role in the upcoming No Time To Die film.

And the result of it all is that Hawkins has been able to resume her spot in the W Series.

Speaking to The Mirror, the speedster said: "I stopped racing a good few years before W Series purely because I’d run out of budget to continue on my motorsport journey.

A friend then tagged me on a Facebook post which said they were looking for a female driver with good car control.

“At the time, it didn’t say what it was for, but I just thought ‘I’ll send them my CV and see what happens’.

“It turns out that it was for a show called Fast and Furious Live. All of the stunts that were in the movie, we performed live."

Her impressive showing in that led her to a chance meeting with the stunt co-ordinator on No Time To Die.

And it was full throttle ahead for Hawkins as she appears in the iconic film.

She added: “Bond was actually my first movie. There was quite a lot of pressure, but I was confident in my ability and I had an incredible team around me.

"I’m super proud of what I’ve done.”

She can't give much away from her scenes, but confirmed part of it came driving a Land Rover Defender.

That also appears in an advert for the car company.
