Stephanie Sigman has joined the cast of 'Spectre'.

The model-turned-actress is set to star in the 24th James Bond film, a post on the movie's official Twitter account confirmed.

It read: ''We are pleased to announced that @SigmanStephanie has joined the cast of #Spectre as Estrella. (sic)''

Daniel Craig is set to return as Bond for the fourth time whilst Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes and Rory Kinnear will reprise their roles from the last instalment, 'Skyfall'.

Sam Mendes is at the helm as director and the likes of Andrew Scott, Christoph Waltz and Dave Bautista are new additions to the cast.

However, filming hasn't got off to a great start with some of the cast and crew suffering injuries on set.

Most recently, Daniel sprained his knee whilst shooting a fight scene in London.

The injury meant the shooting schedule had to be changed in order to accommodate his recovery, which was a ''real concern'' for bosses.

A source said at the time: ''Daniel's injury is a real concern. Missed deadlines are a nightmare in the film world as it pushes everything back. Then not all the iconic locations can be rebooked easily or quickly.

''In two weeks filming is due to switch to Rome and bosses fear Daniel's recovery may mean they have to plan around their main star. It's certainly not ideal.''

The film follows Bond on the trail of a global terrorist organisation, Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion (SPECTRE), as he tries to uncover the truth behind the dangerous organisation.

'Spectre' is due to open in UK cinemas on November 6.
