James Bond fansite, MI-6, reveal that Greek model/actress Tonia Sotiropoulou is a late addition to the cast of ‘Skyfall,’ confirming her role after she announced it on her Facebook page saying, “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!!!!” Sotiropoulou will reportedly start filming on April 22nd on location in Istanbul, Turkey, where she will shoot two or three scenes over 5 days. Originally Sotiropoulou had auditioned for the major role of Sévérine in August against a lot of other contenders, but lost out to French actress Bérénice Marlohe.

Directed by Sam Mendes, ‘Skyfall’ will see Daniel Craig and Judi Dench continue their roles. The cast also includes Naomie Harris as a field agent named Eve, Javier Bardem as the main villain, Ben Whishaw as Q, Albert Finney, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner – the MI6 Chief of Staff, Ola Rapace, French actress Bérénice Marlohe as the “glamorous and enigmatic Sévérine,” and Ralph Fiennes, who’s role has been described as “darkly complex.”

I’ve got high hopes for ‘Skyfall,’ I’m a huge fan of Daniel Craig’s incarnation of James Bond. This latest chapter is being shot at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, Scotland, Whitehall in London, Shanghai and Istanbul. The screenplay is written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. ‘Skyfall’ will begin its worldwide roll-out in the UK and Ireland on October 26th, with a North American release following on November 9th. The Director of Photography is Roger Deakins, a nine-time Oscar nominee who previously shot the films ‘Jarhead’ and ‘Revolutionary Road’ for Mendes. Composer Thomas Newman will score the film.
