MEXICO CITY (AP) – Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman will become the latest “Bond girl” when she appears in 007’s upcoming movie Spectre.
The official 007 website Inside the World of James Bond is announcing Sigman’s role in the 24th Bond movie. It says she will play a character named Estrella opposite Daniel Craig as Bond.
Sigman starred in the award-winning 2011 Mexican film Miss Bala, about a beauty pageant contestant involved with drug traffickers.
Linda Christian, the Hollywood starlet of the 1940s who was born in Mexico, was arguably the first Bond girl.
In 1954 she starred as James Bond’s love interest in the television adaptation of the novel Casino Royale.
Christian died in 2011 at the age of 87.
Nicaraguan-American actress Barbara Carrera appeared as Fatima Blush in 1984’s Never Say Never Again.
