All Bond Girls And Villains — Then And Now

If we think of the innumerable movies of the famous secret agent James Bond, we have to add all the women that shared adventures with him. These women played the role of lovers, enemies and allies. Maybe the James Bond myth wouldn’t be anything without them. The following list is a compilation of the most important Bond Girls of all time. Remember: this is not a list of just “Bond girls”: we also included villains and partners starred by women. See how they look like now! 

#33. Lois Maxwell

The first 15 James Bond movies would be nothing without Lois Maxwell in the role of Miss Moneypenny. The Canadian actress is well known for her role in movies like Dr. No (1962), From Russia With Love (1963), On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969) and last A View To A Kill (1985). She acted in all but one of the 15 first Bond movies: Never Say Never Again (1983) was the odd one out, as that movie was not an Eon Productions Bond movie. But who could forget about the adorable but witty character starred by Lois?

Although Miss Moneypenny never had a love story with the secret agent, the dialogues and sly jokes between them are an essential part of the world of James Bond. During the Timoty Dalton’s Bond films she was not asked to continue the role but she continued acting in television and films until 2001. Her career goes back to 1940s when she won the Golden Globe Award For Most Promising Newcomer. After her successful long career, she passed away in 2007 at the age of 80. Don’t miss the rest of the list!

#32. Ursula Andress

Maybe the most remembered scene from James Bond is the one in which Ursula Andress, in the role of Honey Rider, comes out slowly from the ocean in a white bikini in the movie Dr. No (1962). This scene has been homaged in a lot of movies, including James Bond movies, like Die Another Day by Halle Berry and even by the secret agent himself starred by Daniel Craig in Casino Royale.

The Swedish actress was part of countless American, British and Italian films. One of her most remarkable roles was in Clash Of The Titans (1981) as Aphrodite. Since the beginning of the 90s, Ursula hasn’t been in many movies or television shows. Her last role to date was playing Madonna in the Swedish low-cost movie “Die Vogelpredigt oder Das Schreien der Mönche“. Find out what other Bond Girl shared the screen with Ursula!

#31. Daniela Bianchi

In the second movie of James Bond, From Russia With Lovewe remember the Soviet clerk Tatiana Romanova that was sent to set a trap to Agent 007. This role was played by the Italian actress and beauty queen Daniela Bianchi. Her voice in the movie had to be dubbed because of her accent but she immediately won popularity.

Ever since her popularity from the James Bond movie, she has starred in a couple of French and Italian movies. But her career stopped abruptly when she got married to businessman Alberto Cameli in 1970 and decided not to continue with acting anymore. In 2012, she appeared in the documentary film We’re Nothing Like James Bondtalking about the time she was a Bond Girl.

#30. Honor Blackman

Honor Blackman became famous when she acted in the British TV series The Avengers (1962-1964). She had the perfect combination to be a perfect villain of the 007 Agent: a perfect English accent and an intimidating glare. She played Pussy Galore in the third movie of James Bond Goldfinger (1964). Some films critics say that this is the “quintessential” James Bond movie.

At the end of the movie, she fell in love with the secret agent but not before showing that in the world of James Bond it is possible to see a woman as an equal to the agent. After her role as Pussy Galore, Blackman continued acting not only in movies but also in theater, with the musical Mr & Mrs. She is also known because of her singing career. Her last appearance on TV was in an episode of You, Me & Them in 2015.

#29. Shirley Eaton

Goldfinger is probably one of the best James Bond movies in film history. Who does not recall the memorable scene where Shirley Eaton as the Bond Girl Jill Masterson dies all covered by gold-paint? After one night of love with Sean Connery as the secret agent, her short role is still in our memories. She was also known because of her roles in comedies like Panic In The Parlor and dramas like The  Girl Hunter, but nothing can be compared with her success in Goldfinger.

Her role as Jill Masterson gave her a lot of popularity; in fact, she even appeared in the cover of Life Magazine covered in gold. Thus, the golden-painted girl won a place in our hearts as one of the favorite Bond Girls. In the 70s she decided to retire from acting after her marriage to Colin Lenton Rowe, and instead committed herself to raising their two sons, Grant and Jason. In 1999 she published her autobiography.

#28. Claudine Auger

The French actress, and also Miss France Monde, appeared as Domino in the movie Thunderball (1965). After a long search for the Bond Girl, she earned the role after beating famous actresses like Faye Dunaway and Raquel Welch. Even the producers had to change the nationality of Domino because originally it was going to be an Italian woman. Although she took English lessons to practice the language, her voice was dubbed by Nikki Van Der Zyl.

After Thunderball, Claudine appeared in the cover of Playboy with a semi-nude. Her career was the focus in Europe, and she co-starred Anyone Can Play with another famous Bond Girl, Ursula Andress. Moreover, she was part of the well-known film Black Belly Of The Tarantula, sharing the screen along with Bond Girl Barbara Bach. Her last appearance was in the TV movie The Red And The Black in 1997.

#27. Luciana Paluzzi

As the Ying-Yang everyone has their opposite… In Thunderball, James Bond definitely had his opposite: we’re talking about the SPECTRE agent Fiona Volpe played by the Italian actress Luciana Paluzzi. As we said, the role of the Bond Girl in Thunderball was supposed to be for an Italian woman, and Luciana auditioned for it. When the producers decided to give the role to Claudine Auger and changed the nationality of Domino to French, they offered her the role of the villain as compensation. It was love at first sight!

Luciana continued with her career during the 60s and 70s, appeared as a guest on Hawaii Five-O and movies like The Klansman (1974), Two Faces Of Fear and her final film Deadly Chase. Since 1980 she has been married to Michael Jay Salomon, a former president of Warner Bros International Television. She has given a couple of interviews and in the documentary Behind The Scenes Of Thunderball, she meditated about the time she was a Bond Girl and the fame that came with it. In her words: “It’s so much, it’s overwhelming.”

#26. Akiko Wakabayashi

Akiko Wakabayashi was part of the movie You Only Live Twice (1967) as the Japanese secret agent Aki. She was not in the role of the Bond Girl Kissy Suzuki, since that role was played by Mie Hama. However, she won the impression of the audience by her acting, turning her into the principal Bond Girl of the movie. After the film’s success, she decided to continue acting throughout the 60s, but earlier in the 70s, she decided to retire from the big and small screen.

Photo: Courtesy of Looper.

In an interview from G-FAN magazine, Wakabayashi said that the decision she made was because she suffered injuries while she was making a movie. She is probably the most mysterious woman in the world of the 007 Agent. Since then, journalists couldn’t have a recent photo of her.

#25. Diana Rigg

Apparently, most Bond Girls were in the spotlight for a short time; however, this is not the case of Diana Rigg. She was already a very well-known actress for her role as Emma Peel on The Avengers. In the film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969,) she was in the skin of Tracy Bond, the only James Bond’s wife who sadly died at the end of the movie. She said that she took that role in order to become known in the United States, which was actually the case.

The English actress has been acting in movies, theater and television, making her an idol for different generations of fans. She was nominated for a lot of awards, and she won quite a lot of them too. Maybe her most recent role as Lady Olenna Tyrell in the HBO series Game Of Thrones is one of her memorable works. The role of Queen of Thorns gave her an Emmy nomination that she won in 2013. A few years later in 2018, she was nominated for a Tony Award for her work in My Fair Lady on Broadway. We can’t wait to see more of her!

#24. Jill St. John

American actress Jill St. John started her acting career when she was 6 years old and made her debut in the big screen at the age of 9 in the first full-length made-for-TV movie A Christmas Carol (1949).

Her most recent appearance was in the role of Mrs. Claus, co-starring with her husband as Santa Claus, in the Hallmark movie Northpole in 2014.

#23. Jane Seymour

Roger Moore’s James Bond debut in 1973 on Live And Let Die was in the company of the English actress Jane Seymour, who played the role of enigmatic Bond Girl Solitaire. She is, perhaps, one of the most remembered Bond Girl of all time. After the movie, she acted as Princess Farah in Sinbad And The Eye Of The Tiger in 1975. Since then, she has been working in films like Weeding Crashers, as well as in television series, like Smallville and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, for which she won a Golden Globe.

However, she didn’t limit her career to acting… She is the author of self-help and inspirational books, including Jane Seymour’s Guide To Romantic Living (1986), Two At A Time: Having Twins (2002), Remarkable Changes (2003), and Among Angels (2010). She also co-wrote several children’s books for the This One ‘N That One series. In 2008 she designed the “Open Hearts Collection” of jewelry for Kay Jewelers. It seems that nothing can stop this woman.

#22. Britt Ekland

Britt Ekland is a Swedish actress and singer who jumped into the world of fame between the 60s and 70s after her roles in films like The Night They Raided Minsky’s (1968) and the British crime film Get Carter (1971).

Her life has been an inspiration for different movies and she has been portrayed by other famous actresses like Charlize Theron in The Life and Death of Peter Sellers and Helena Mattson in My Dinner With Herve.

#21. Barbara Bach

#20. Lois Chiles

Lois Chiles started her career as a fashion model but immediately began to pursue a career as an actress. She starred in movies like The Way We Were (1973), The Great Gatsby (1974), and Death on the Nile (1978). Her performances made the producers of The Spy Who Loved Me offer her the role of the Bond Girl, which she declined because she was taking a break from acting at the time. But the producers didn’t lose the actress’s sight.

By the end of 1970, the last Bond film was released. Lewis Gilbert directed Moonraker, with Roger Moore as the 007 Agent and Chiles as the NASA astronaut and scientist Bond Girl Dr. Holly Goodhead. After that, she was part of TV series such as Dallas, Creepshow 2, Broadcast News and The Nanny. She has also dabbled into education: in 2002 she taught a course in film acting at the University of Houston. Her last film was 2006 Kettle Of Fish.

In 1999, she was a member of the jury of 4th Shanghai International Film Festival and in 2014 of the Cannes Film Festival. In 2018 she appeared in Kiss & Tell.

#18. Maud Adams

Do you know who had the honor of acting not in one but three different movies of the James Bond franchise? Maud Adams, without a doubt! In The Man with the Golden Gunshe had a small role as the villain Scaramanga’s lover Andrea Anders. Her performance was so powerful that she was contacted to return for a small character in Octupussy in 1983. In this second film, she was in the role of an exotic and mysterious smuggler with a taste for jewels.

But this is not the last time we saw her in a James Bond film! If we look really carefully in A View To Kill (1985) she appeared in an uncredited cameo. Ever since, Adams has remained close to the Bond producers, often attending Bond premieres and other events associated with the series. Of course, they can not forget about James Bond Girl par excellence!

#17. Tanya Roberts

Tanya Roberts started her career as a model before she was part of movies like Charlie’s Angels, The Beastmaster and Sheena. In 1985, she entered the franchise of James Bond by her role as Bond Girl Stacey Sutton in the film A View To Kill. She continued acting until her most famous recent role in the TV series That ’70s Show as Donna’s mother Midge.

In 2001 she finally decided to quit the role because she wanted to share more time with her husband, who had become terminally ill. In spite of this, she appeared in a couple more episodes in 2004. Finally, her husband died in 2006, but she hasn’t come back to the world of acting. A couple of years later, she wrote the foreword to the book The Q Guide to Charlie’s Angels (2008).

#16. Grace Jones

Maybe the Jamaican-American supermodel, singer, songwriter, record producer and actress has the opposite career compared to most of the other Bond Girls. Grace Jones starred as May Day, the bodyguard and lover of Max Zorin starred by Christopher Walken. Together, they were the perfect combination for villains and we still remember their roles in the not acclaimed movie.

She sporadically acted in a couple of movies like Conan The Destroyer, Vamp and No Place Like Home. But her strength has been definitely in her singing career. She has released albums like Slave To The Rythm, Bulletproof Heart, and her most recent album Hurricane. In 2015 she wrote her autobiography I Never Write My Memories. 

#15. Maryam d’Abo

#14. Carey Lowell

Before Carey Lowell became a successful actress in the last James Bond movie of director Timothy Dalton Licence To Kill (1989), she had started her modeling career with famous designers like Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. Her role as Pam Bouvier gave her the entrance to other acting jobs during the 80s and 90s, like the role of Jamie Rose in Law & Order. This was the last acting role she took because she decided to throw herself into documentary film-making at New York University.

Her personal life has been in the tabloids too. She was married to the well-known actor Richard Gere from 2002 up to 2013, when they decided to divorce. After a three-year legal battle, everything ended in peace. They had one son called Homer James Jigme Gere who was born in February 2000. In 2012, she returned for her role as Pam Bouvier to put the voice of the character in the video game 007 Legends. In 2018, she had an appearance in the CBS series Blue Boods and Bull. 

#13. Samantha Bond

In the Era of Pierce Brosnan as the 007 Agent, we saw a new Miss Moneypenny starred by the well-known English actress Samantha Bond. Yes, her last name is actually Bond! She has been part of the Royal Shakespeare Company and we can’t think of someone better than her to play the role of the agent’s secretary. From 1995  to 2005 she was part of all of Brosnan’s movies, lending her identity to the character.

#12. Judi Dench

During the time Pierce Brosnan was in the role of the secret agent, we had a new female character, Judi Dench, who played the role of M., James Bond’s boss and head of M16 corporation. She became the first woman to portray M., after Robert Brown, showing herself as a strong intelligent woman. With Pierce Brosnan, they made a perfect couple of confidants. She was so good in her role, that she was called for the movie Skyfall starring Daniel Craig as James Bond.

We have nothing to say about Judi Dench’s long career, it talks by itself. She is a consolidated actress from the big screen, TV, and the theater. Her most memorable roles were in Philomena, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Victoria & Abdul. The number of films and plays she has been in is related to the dozen of awards she has won during her life, including an Oscar, four BATFAs and two Golden Globes.

#9. Michelle Yeoh

Maybe the Malaysian actress is the toughest Bond Girl in all time and we literally mean it! Michelle Yeoh started her acting career in action and martial arts films such as Yes, Madam in 1985, where she did most of her stunts. She was an icon of Hing Hong action cinema when she was offered to play the role of Wai Lin in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies (1997).  Pierce Brosnan was so impressed about the combat skills she had as he referred to her as the “female James Bond”.

In the 90s she slowly started to transition into an acting career. At first, she worked in lower-budget films and television shows until 1999, when she was cast as the nuclear physicist Bond Girl Christmas Jones in the film The World Is Not Enough. Her role was a brainy and athletic girl that made the perfect match with the 007 Agent.

In 2003 she starred in the psychological thriller Gothika opposite Robert Downey, Jr.  Later in 2004, she starred as the title role in the film Gothika.
