Producers of the new James Bond film, ‘Spectre’, have revealed the latest Bond girl in the upcoming ‘007’ movie.
Back in December, the title and cast of the 24th James Bond movie were unveiled confirming Daniel Craig as ‘007’ for the fourth time. The latest model of the Bond car that was exclusively designed for the new film was also unveiled.
During the launch event for ‘Spectre’, an acronym for Special Executive for counter-intelligence, terrorism, revenge and extortion, the supporting actors were announced that they include Christoph Waltz, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott, Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux.
While Waltz will play the villain role, Bellucci and Seydoux will act as the new “Bond girls” in the roles of Lucia Sciarra and Madeleine Swann respectively. Also, Naomi Harris will reprise her role of Moneypenny.
On 9 March, the latest girl newcomer entering Bond’s life has been announced as Stephanie Sigman has been tapped for joining the cast of ‘Spectre’ which is due for release on 6 November, 2015.
The 28-year-old Mexican actress will star in the movie as the new Bond lady along with Bellucci, Harris and Seydoux in the role of Estrella.

Sigman has previously starred in the Oscar-nominated ‘Miss Bala’, in 2011, and in the Norwegian thriller ‘Pioneer’ while also appearing in the TV series ‘The Bridge’ and the recent ‘Narcos’.
In a behind-the-scenes footage for ‘Spectre’ released last month, director Sam Mendes said: “What you have is a movie entirely driven by Bond. He is on a mission from the very beginning”. The movie “is about whether or not to pursue the life he’s always pursued, whether he matters and is he going to continue or not”.
