First Ever James Bond Girl, Eunice Gayson, Dies at 90
Gayson dazzled alongside Sean Connery in 1962's 'Dr. No'
Eunice Gayson, the first woman to play what would become known as a "Bond girl", has died.
It's not clear how the English actress died. She was 90.
Gayson starred alongside Sean Connery in the 1962 film "Dr. No", thus originating the always dazzling--sometimes deadly--role of the loveliest lady in any given James Bond film.
Gayson played Sylvia Trench in "Dr. No" and reprised the role in 1964's "From Russia With Love."
She was the only woman to ever appear in two Bond films as the same character.
"We are so sad to learn that Eunice Gayson, our very first 'Bond girl'...has passed away," producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in a statement. "Our sincere thoughts are with her family."
After her time as a Bond girl, Gayson appeared in the classic British television series "The Saint" and "The Avengers", among other roles.
