The French actress graces the cover of Loaded Magazine, where she also posed for a new Spectre photo shoot. The publication goes onto call her the smartest, sexiest, Frenchiest Bond girl ever!

Now, she will play a doctor opposite Daniel Craig's James Bond. No further details about her character have been revealed at this time.

On Monday, the official Twitter account for the upcoming James Bond adventure Spectre revealed that production has resumed following a brief holiday hiatus, by posting a photo from the set that showcased a snowy environment. We had speculated that this photo was taken from Lake Altaussee in Austria, one of the previously-confirmed locations that Spectre is filming in. Now we have five new photos with cast members Daniel Craig (James Bond), Dave Bautista (Hinx) and Léa Seydoux (Madeleine Swann), which confirm that shooting is taking place at the Austrian ski resort Solden.
The official website for Solden confirms that filming will take place between January 7 and January 13, with the production returning to the resort from February 9 through February 17. The production will utilize a cable car, restaurant, a glacier road and tunnel during the Solden portion of Spectre's shoot. Naturally, no story details were uncovered as to why this snowy location is being use. The plot centers on Bond receiving a cryptic message from his past that leads him on a quest to reveal the sinister truth behind the Spectre organization. The production will also shoot at Pinewood Studios in London, and on location in Rome, Mexico City, Morocco and other Austrian locations such as Obertilliach and Lake Altaussee.Read More
French actress Léa Seydoux has signed on to play a femme fatale in Bond 24, according to a new report from The Daily Mail. The actress is reportedly set to meet co-stars Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw for a script rehearsal in late November, with production scheduled to begin in six weeks. Before the rehearsal, the actress will meet with producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson for a series of camera, costume and makeup tests to determine her look for the movie.
We reported in August that Léa Seydoux was being eyed by director Sam Mendes to play Miranda Frost, a character played by Rosamund Pike in the 2002 adventure Die Another Day, which was Pierce Brosnan's last turn as 007. It hasn't been confirmed if the actress is, in fact, playing Miranda Frost or not. It is also unclear if this is the role that singer/actress Rihanna was reportedly wanted for last month.Read More
Now that Bond 24 is back on track, and will start shooting in December, following a short delay due to script issues, the focus has returned to casting this action-packed sequel. A new report claims that Léa Seydoux (Blue Is the Warmest Color) is the top choice for the female lead, opposite Daniel Craig as 007.
This version of Miranda Frost is said to be much different than Rosamund Pike's incarnation, but it still isn't clear if this is the role that Léa Seydoux is being pursued for. In Die Another Day, Miranda Frost was a duplicitous MI6 agent whose true allegiance was to the villainous Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens).Read More
