After the major release of the 24th Bond movie in 2015, Spectre, we can’t help but look back on the entire series of Bond films since it all began in 1962 with Dr. No. While numerous actors have played James Bond over the years, ranging from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig, we can’t ignore the underlying anticipation that many viewers have for each film that is released, the unveiling of the new “Bond girl.”
The role of Bond girl has been highly sought out by Hollywood actresses over the years, and casting directors make no mistake determining who will win over the desirable role(s) with each film. Let’s take a look back at all of the Bond women over time, most of whom were given their “big break” with the major debut.
Our first ever “Bond girl,” Eunice Grayson, who starred in Dr. No and From Russia with Love alongside Sean Connery, was originally cast as secretary Miss Moneypenny. However, the role was later given to Lois Maxwell and Grayson officially won over the first role as James Bond’s on-screen girlfriend, Sylvia Trench.
