Stephanie Sigman, who stars alongside Daniel Craig in the upcoming film Spectre, is the first Mexican actress cast as a Bond Girl. “When they made the announcement, I got more calls and messages than on my birthday,” she said on Wednesday afternoon in New York City. “I was like, ‘Oh shit, I’m going to be the Bond girl!’ I thought I was just going to be someone in the movie.” Although she wasn’t always a huge Bond fan, Sigman understands that landing a historic role such as this is what some in the industry might call a “big break,” leading to plenty of other opportunities as well, such as her new role as the face of Belvedere vodka’s limited edition 007 collaboration. In case you’re wondering, she prefers martinis (“dry, shaken, and straight up,” but also “with a twist”) to Piña Coladas, and salsa dancing to walks in the rain.
