When the cast for SPECTRE — the upcoming 24th James Bond film — was announced, the film made headlines for adding Monica Bellucci, 50, as the franchise’s oldest Bond girl. At 50, Bellucci is just three years older than Bond himself — Daniel Craig is 47 years old.

Now, the film is going in the opposite direction by adding 28-year-old Stephanie Sigman. The budding Mexican actress will play Estrella, a mysterious new woman in Bond’s life. The movie’s official Twitter account tweeted Monday: “We are pleased to announce that @SigmanStephanie has joined the cast of #SPECTRE as Estrella pic.twitter.com/63ibzmlFFz

Whether she is Bond’s friend or foe remains to be seen, but she’ll be the film’s youngest lady behind Léa Seydoux (Dr. Madeleine Swann, pictured below from an official tweet), 29, and Naomie Harris (Eve Moneypenny), 38.

Sigman joins an impressive cast with Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Guardian of the Galaxy’s Dave Bautista (as villain Mr. Hinx), and Rory Kinnear rounding out the roster. SPECTRE is currently filming and expected to hit theaters in the U.S. on Nov. 6.
