Bond 25 brings back Lea Sey­doux

Winnipeg Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Lea Sey­doux is re­turn­ing to the Bond fran­chise.

The French ac­tress was last seen in 2015’s Spec­tre as psy­chi­a­trist Madeleine Swann, who even­tu­ally suc­cumbs to James Bond’s charms af­ter meet­ing him at the Alpine clinic she works at.

And it was the re­turn­ing 007 Daniel Craig who wanted Lea back for Bond 25, which is slated for a 2020 re­lease, with the full bless­ing of di­rec­tor Cary Fuku­naga.

“Lea will be re­turn­ing,” Fuku­naga told Bri­tain’s Daily Mail news­pa­per, adding that Ralph Fi­ennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris will also be back as M, Q and Eve Moneypenny, re­spec­tively.

“You have some of the best ac­tors in the world here. Why wouldn’t I have the best com­ing back?!”
