The next James Bond adventure, Skyfall, has been in production for a couple of months now, but if you think that means that they have completed their cast roster then you are mistaken. Apparently director Sam Mendes was thinking that his upcoming film didn't have enough Bond Girls, with Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris already on board, so he's added a third.
MI6 has confirmed that Greek actress Tonia Sotiropoulou has been brought on board for Skyfall. The actress let everyone know the good news by leaving a message on her Facebook wall reading, "Dear friends I officially announce I got a part in J. Bond new film!!! Turkey here I come! Thank u all for you love and support! This is officially the happiest day of my life bitches!!!!" She is on her way to Istanbul now where the fansite says she will be spending five days shooting two or three scenes. What's interesting about the hiring is that the actress was originally up for the role of Sévérine, which ended up going to Bérénice Marlohe. The casting director liked her so much, however, that they found a place for her in the movie.
Skyfall sees Daniel Craig return as Bond for the third time on film along with the aforementioned Marlohe and Harris, Dame Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace and Ben Whishaw. The story sees the trust between Bond and M shattered when and old secret comes back to haunt the MI6 leader. In the meantime, a devastating threat poses to bring an end to the organization and it is up to Bond to stop it.
