There is a tendency to say every female under 40 who signs up for a 007 movie is a Bond girl, and that’s what Greek actress Tonia Sotiropoulou is being described as even though her part is pretty small. She announced the news herself through her Facebook page (via MI6-HQ.com) that she will play Daniel Craig’s girlfriend.
She says, “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!!!!”
The actress will start shooting April 22 in Istanbul, Turkey, where she will film two or three scenes over five days. It is said that she also auditioned for the major role of Severine, which French actress Berenice Marlohe eventually won, but won the smaller part of Bond’s squeeze.
The film hits cinemas in October.
