Tonia Sotiropoulou cast as Bond girl in ‘Skyfall’

The upcoming 007 film "Skyfall" has a new Bond girl: Tonia Sotiropoulou.

If you don't know her now, you will soon enough. The Greek model-actress announced the casting on her Facebook page. "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 b******!!!!"

James Bond fan site MI6 broke the news. According to the site, Sotiropoulou originally auditioned for the part of "Severine," but she lost the role to French actress Berenice Marlohe. Apparently she made enough of an impression to come back in another role. Naomie Harris will play another Bond girl, Eve, while Oscar winner Javier Bardem will play the baddie bent on (what else?) world domination.

Near as we can tell, this will be Sotiropoulou's first big-time flick. And she is justifiably excited. Again, according to MI6, she spoke about her happiness with the Greek press. "This is the happiest day of my life so far! I feel very lucky and blessed, but basically, I am very grateful that this happened, for my family and my friends who believe in me and support trying to do. I will do the best. I am very proud because somehow it might be something that will advertise in Greece and I am happy about it."

Sony, the studio distributing the movie, had no comment on the subject.

Not much is known about "Skyfall," but expectations for the third Daniel Craig Bond flick are high. Directed by Oscar winner Sam Mendes ("American Beauty"), the film has come under fire for having Bond drink a Heineken beer instead of a vodka martini.

He can wiggle his way out of laser prisons and jump from crashing planes, but not even 007 can escape the most dastardly villain of all -- product placement.
