RIP Eunice Gayson

Eunice Gayson, who played the first James Bond girl, has died at the age of 90.

The actress portrayed Sylvia Trench in the first two Bond films, Doctor No and From Russia With Love, opposite Sean Connery. In both films, her voice was dubbed by voice over artist Nikki van der Zyl as was the then common practice for all the actresses in those early Bond films. Away from the Bond franchise, Gayson appeared the classic Hammer horror, The Revenge of Frankenstein, along with many cult TV shows in the 1960s including Danger Man, The Avengers and The Saint. On the London stage, Gayson starred for several years as Frau Schrader in The Sound of Music at the Palace Theatre.
