With the recent release of Spectre, we look back at some of the most iconic Bond Girls from over the franchise’s 53 years on screen.
With her razored hair and 80s power suits, Grace Jones is surely one of the most iconic Bond Girls. The actress appeared as May Day in A View To Kill, and had to be collected every day by producer Barbara Broccoli because she didn’t like early mornings.
Olga Kurylenko who played Camille in Quantum Of Solace, was chosen from 400 women who auditioned for the role. The director chose her because she seemed the least nervous.
Maud Adams played Octopussy in the eponymous film. The Swedish actress previously appeared as Andrea, who met an untimely death, in The Man With The Golden Gun.
French actress and current face of L’Oreal Professionnel, Eva Green appeared as Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale. After seeing Daniel Craig emerge topless from the sea she reportedly told the press “He is the Bond Girl – not me!”
In Die Another Day, Pierce Brosnan meets Halle Berry’s Giacinta ‘Jinx’ Johnson as she emerges from the sea in a halter-neck yellow bikini.
Who could forget sassy blonde Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore in Goldfinger? Interestingly, Blackman is the oldest-ever Bond Girl, being 37 years of age at the time of filming.
Honey Ryder emerging from the sea in Dr No is one of the most iconic Bond images of all time. The white bikini Ursula Andress wore was bought at auction in 2001 for £35,000.
