- James Bond films always have a "Bond Girl"
- Actress Ursula Andress was the first one
- See "Honey Ryder" today in our video!
There are three types of "Bond Girls": romantic interests (those who help "Bond" in a sidekick role), femme fatales (who try to kill "Bond' at some point), and sacrificial lambs (feminine associates who die in the movie).
Ursula Andress was the first and our favorite "Bond Girl"
Sometimes, a "Bond Girl" can be more than one. There are over 50 characters in the decades-long franchise who classify as "Bond Girls" and here are some favourites:
Diana Rigg as "Teresa di Vicenzo" in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Honor Blackman as "Pussy Galore" in Goldfinger, Luciana Paluzzi as "Fiona Volpe" in Thunderball, Famke Janssen as "Xenia Onatopp" in GoldenEye, Halle Berry as "Giacinta "Jinx" Johnson" in Die Another Day, Barbara Bach as "Anya Amasova" in The Spy Who Loved Me, Britt Ekland as "Mary Goodnight" in The Man with the Golden Gun. There is also, of course, the original "Honey Ryder" as played by Ursula Andress in Dr. No.
