Naomie Harris: Eve
Naomie, set to play a field agent called Eve, is probably still best known to film fans as Tia Dalma in 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and 2007 follow-up Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.
On her preparation for the coveted role of Bond girl, she revealed: 'I've been doing yoga three times a week to get into shape and stunt-driving and firing machine guns, which I've discovered I've got a real taste for.'
Bérénice Marlohe: Severin
French actress and model Bérénice, who says her agent character will be 'glamorous' and 'enigmatic', has so far appeared mainly on TV in her native land, including roles in Père et maire (2002), R.I.S. Police scientifique (2006) and Équipe médicale d'urgence (2006) - the latter of which featured her in a raunchy topless sex scene.
And the villain (as yet unnamed) will be played by Javier Bardem.
Bardem won an an Academy Award for his spine-chilling turn as the brooding hitman Anton Chigurh in 2007 Coen brothers masterpiece No Country for Old Men.
