A former Queenstown Primary School pupil turned international pop star is cracking open beer with James Bond.

Gin Wigmore, who grew up with her family in a house on Panorama Tce, co-stars with 007 actor Daniel Craig and new Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe in a television and digital advertisement campaign for a beer.

The Auckland-born artist performs her song Man Like That to a partying audience on board a train as a spy chase plot plays out.

Filmed in England's Shepperton Studios, the minute-long advertisement, called Crack the Case, can be seen on YouTube.

Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond adventure, opens in New Zealand cinemas on November 22.

Wigmore performed in Bannockburn as part of the Classic Hits Winery Tour with the Mutton Birds and Avalanche City on February 21.

Gin and fellow Kiwi singer Kimbra are both in the running for best worldwide act at MTV's Europe music awards, held in Frankfurt on November 12.
