This new chapter of Agent 007 has three new Bond Girls from different nationalities: Monica Bellucci (“Maléna,” “Irreversible”) from Italy, Léa Seydoux (“Blue is the Warmest Color,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and “Grand Central”) from France, and Completing the trio Stephanie Sigman from Mexico.

After Rome, the Bond production directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes landed in Mexico City two weeks ago and has already started shooting in the historic center. They closed to the public some important streets and rented two soundstages of the Churubusco Studios, one for wardrobe and the other for make-up.
