The 18-year-old is inspired by the star Caroline Cosey, who appeared as an extra in the 1981 Bond film For Your Eyes Only, before being cast out as trans by a newspaper, and posed for Playboy in 1991 She was the first trans woman to give.
Yasmin said: “Shout out to Caroline. She has inspired me to represent her positively in a way that James Bond never had.
