Östrand, aged 27, has been acting on screen since 2005, and recently appeared in Swedish short film, "Shed No Tears". Engvoll, 28, is currently filming "Vitt skräp" (2015) opposite "Skyfall" villain Ola Rapace.

"I get very nervous when it's things like where the big stuff," Östrand told the press about her audition. "I tried not to think too much about the chances or not, but just to be there."

Engvoll was more circumspect: "I say nothing about it. Everything about the film series is very secret. But the audition went well considering the circumstances. You only have one shot at himself and the situation is very special."

If cast, these two would follow in a succession of Swedish Bond girls that includes Maud Adams, Britt Ekland and Kristina Wayborn.
