Scott played the character of Max Denbigh, also known as 'C', in Spectre and it was later revealed in the movie that he was part of the shadow organisation.
The actor's ability to play either a villain, like in the aforementioned two roles, has led to some fans dream casting him as a potential main villain in a future Bond property. But, that won't be happening, according to the man himself.
"If I’m honest, it’s not a territory that I feel like I would want to go over again," he told GQ.
"Now I know who I am a little bit more, I feel like the work that I’m just interested in doing is more in the grey areas.
“I suppose it’s just that I didn’t think… I just maybe wasn’t that good in it.”
Scott was urged to keep his sexuality a secret
Scott first publicly acknowledged his sexuality in 2013 and recently mentioned that he was once told by people inside the entertainment business to hide his identity as a gay man.
“I was encouraged, by people in the industry who I really admired and who had my best interests at heart, to keep that , I understand why they gave that advice, but I’m also glad that I eventually ignored it," he revealed.
“I had a very happy childhood, but there’s an inevitable pain that you have to go through when you have to take a risk telling your family something about yourself.
"I really do think that that is a gift now, because to have to risk everything, and for your family and friends to say ‘We accept you no matter what,’ that’s a real feeling of love that you get confirmed at a very young age, that actually some people who aren’t queer don’t get.
"I mean, some queer people aren’t so lucky.”
