With Sam Mendes helming the direction for the second time, a new cast of stars include Andrew Scott as Denbigh, David Bautista of Guardians of the Galaxy fame as Mr Hinx, and Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser.
Wait, someone else is missing. Right, the Bond girl.
Spectre made headlines in the Bond movie franchise with Monica Bellucci, 50, as the oldest Bond girl, playing Lucia Sciarra. In fact, Bellucci is just over three years older than Bond himself – Daniel Craig is 47 years old. There’s another female lead, played by Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann.
Wait, that’s not all. There’s a third female lead in the movie as well, and actress Stephanie Sigman has been signed on to play the character Estrella, a mysterious new woman in Bond’s life. The movie’s official Twitter account announced the casting on Monday with this tweet:

It’s as yet unclear as to Estrella’s role in the movie, whether she’s a friend or a foe of Bond. And Sigman has an impressive resume too. She starred in the 2011 movie Miss Bala, a Mexican drama, in which she played a beauty queen who enters the Miss Baja beauty pageant, only to end up being kidnapped and forced into illegal activity. Plus, she also starred in the FX series The Bridge, as the former girlfriend of a contract killer. But the series went off air after just two seasons. Another role of note was in the movie Pioneer, in which she played the wife of a diver who’s killed in an apparent tragic accident.
