The actress, the first Latina to star in the James Bond movie franchise, will portray a character named Estrella, joining fellow beauties Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux opposite Daniel Craig in the new blockbuster.

Sigman never thought she would ever have the opportunity to appear in such an iconic film franchise and admits the role is "one of those dream jobs".

She adds, "They (reporters) ask me if I ever imagined it, and I have a very extensive imagination. So, I've imagined many things in life, but sometimes you don't think something is really going to happen and when it happens, it's very satisfying."

Sigman, 28, hopes the movie will launch her career in Hollywood after rising to prominence following her previous breakthrough role in 2011 Mexican drama Miss Bala, in which she starred as an aspiring beauty queen caught up in a drug trafficking drama.

She tells Spanish news agency Efe, "I don't think I'd be here if it wasn't for that film (Miss Bala). That's how you build, create, by working hard to continue opening other paths in other places, so I hope that, yes, many interesting things will come my way (after Spectre)...

"I think there's going to be a big opening (box office debut). I expect this project will open a higher, different door to another path."
