Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman joins cast of latest James Bond movie.

As if Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux weren't already enough, Daniel Craig is going to have another Bond girl to try his best one-liners on in the next 007 film.

In an announcement made via the official James Bond 007 Facebook page, Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman has joined Spectre, cast as the as-yet-unknown character Estelle. Given that Sigman is the lesser-known of the three Bond girls announced so far, speculation has already started to gather than she won't make it to the final credits. One Facebook user suggested she'd be the film's "sacrificial lamb."

Sigman has previously starred in Mexico's 2011 Oscars foreign language submission, Miss Bala, as well as the Norwegian thriller Pioneer. Recent TV appearances include FX's U.S. remake of the Danish/Swedish series The Bridge and Netflix's Narcos

Last month, Spectre director Sam Mendes released a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot so far, featuring Craig as well as Skyfall returnees Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris and Ralph Fiennes.

"What you have is a movie entirely driven by Bond. He is on a mission from the very beginning," Mendes said in the video. "It’s about whether or not to pursue the life he’s always pursued, whether he matters and is he going to continue or not."

Alongside Sigman, other new additions to the 24th 007 movie include Christoph Waltz, Dave Bautista and Andrew Scott. The first image of Bautista's baddie Mr Hinx was released last month.

Spectre is set to release in the U.S. on November 6.
