Dune: Part 1 featured one of the most star-studded casts in recent memory, and the ensemble of its follow-up will be just as impressive. Léa Seydoux is the latest star to join Dune: Part 2, and she’s set to take on the role of Lady Margot in this highly-anticipated sequel.

In Frank Herbert’s original novel, Lady Margot Fenring was a long-standing servant of the Sisterhood, known as Bene Gesserit. This will be the first time we’ll get to see this character on the big screen since she was omitted from David Lynch’s 1984 adaptation of Dune.

Seydoux joins the cast of the first film, including Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, and Josh Brolin, who will be in good company as Florence Pugh, Christopher Walken, and Austin Butler join the ensemble of Denis Villeneuve’s space epic. Dune: Part 2 doesn’t have a release date yet, but it’s expected to hit the theaters sometime in 2023.

Seydoux is no stranger to starring in high-profile blockbusters since she’s best known for the role of the Bond girl Madeleine Swann in Spectre and No Time to Die. She’s set to appear in David Cronenberg’s Crimes of the Future and Mia Hansen Love’s One Fine Morning later this year.
