James Bond ‘Skyfall’ cast grows

Two new stars have been added to the cast of 007's 23rd outing

Two new stars have been added to the cast of the new James Bond film Skyfall.

As filming got underway on the 23rd outing for 007, the identities of two more actors, although not their characters, have been revealed.

Helen McCrory, who starred in the final two Harry Potter movies, will appear, alongside Ola Rapace, the former husband of Noomi Rapace in what will be his first English language role, according to Deadline.

Details of the new Bond film were revealed a press conference in London last week, which you can watch by clicking on the video at the top of the page. Daniel Craig, who returns to the role for a third time, promised that the film will be “Bond with a capital B”.

Director Sam Mendes said that while there will be plenty of action, the film will have “emotional context”. It had been previously reported that the new film would tone down action sequences in an attempt to woo the Oscars.

Already announced for the cast are Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe and Albert Finney.Video
