Margarita Levieva is now the second actress rumoured to be following in the footsteps of Halle Berry and Eva Green as the next Bond girl.
Russian actress Margarita, 31, has been earmarked by producers to star opposite Daniel Craig in the next instalment of the 007 franchise, the Daily Mirror reports.
Her CV includes a role alongside Ashton Kutcher in Spread and a bit part in Lincoln Lawyer.
A source said: "The perfect Bond girl is beautiful, confident but mysterious, and Margarita has all of those qualities."
The actress has apparently been asked about her availability for the film, which is due to begin shooting in October.
Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto has also been rumoured to be cast in the film.
