Léa Seydoux says she was a fan of the man who plays James Bond long before she got cast as the leading lady in Spectre.

“I was a huge fan,” says Seydoux of costar Daniel Craig. “How can you resist Daniel?! He is so sexy!”

For much more about the Bond women, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

The French actress, 30, plays Madeleine Swann, a psychiatrist and daughter of an assassin in the latest Bond film. Seydoux says she was aiming to play, “a strong character. A Bond girl you remember.”

Seydoux adds that the secret to seducing Bond is to, “be mysterious and to not give everything away about yourself from the start. You have to stay guarded.”

It appears her strategy paid off: Seydoux says Craig was “a very good kisser!”
