Daniel Craig’s 007 is one lucky guy. In this November’s Spectre, the British spy will be trying out his terrible yet seductive one-liners on the likes of Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux, but today brings news that a third Bond girl has entered the picture: Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman.

The star, who previously toplined Mexico’s 2011 Oscars foreign language submission, Miss Bala, and Norwegian thriller Pioneer, was announced to be playing the role of Estrella via the James Bond 007 Facebook page.

Though Sigman, who’ll appear in Netflix’s upcoming Narcos and also had a role of FX’s departed The Bridge, is on the rise, she’s still less known than Bellucci or Seydoux, leading to speculation that her character is a dead woman walking. One Facebook commenter was quick to question whether she’ll be a “sacrificial lamb,” in the spirit of Shirley Easton’s Jill Masterston and Caterina Murino’s Solange Dimitrios, among many others.

Sigman joins a packed cast, including Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, Christoph Waltz as the film’s villain Oberhasuer, Dave Bautista as henchman Mr. HinxSherlock‘s Andrew Scott as Denbigh, Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Rory Kinnear as Tanner and Jesper Christensen as Mr. White.

The official synopsis reads as follows:

A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.

Spectre arrives in U.S. theaters on November 6th, directed by Skyfall helmer Sam Mendes, from a script by Neil Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan.
