The new James Bond now has his Bond Girl.

Eva Green, whose screen credits include Bernardo Bertolucci’s erotic drama The Dreamers, will co-star as the enticing Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale opposite Daniel Craig.

Craig is making his debut appearance as Bond in the film.

“Eva is one of France’s most accomplished young actresses, now receiving international acclaim,” producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in a statement.

“She brings to the complex role of Vesper an exciting combination of enigmatic and seductive beauty.”

Danish-born actor Mads Mikkelsen will play Le Chiffre, Bond’s nemesis, and Jeffrey Wright (Syriana, Basquiat) has joined the cast as Felix Leiter.

Directed by Martin Campbell, Casino Royale is expected to be in cinemas in November.

Green’s screen credits also include roles in Jean-Paul Salome’s French-language film, Arsene Lupin, and Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven, with Orlando Bloom and Liam Neeson.
