Bond girls or James Bond film girls are generally of the well-defined standard of beauty, as they always possess a wonderful figure and are habitually dressed in a muscular and assertive fashion, with only a little jewellery of wide leather belts and square-toed exotic leather shoes.

Depending on the variation of clothes the bond girls make their initial appearance in the films in evening garments, in bra and panties, or naked occasionally. Almost all of the actresses either femme fatale or main sidekicks are of white complexion, usually sunburned skin due to exposure to ultraviolet.

James Bond and all the Bond-girls hypes are about to come to an end. After Skyfall and Spectre, the next possible James Bond film name has been named No Time to Die which was supposed to be Eclipse or Shatterhand. After Quantum of Solace, Casino Royale, Skyfall and Spectre, the 27th and the final bond film is expected to be Daniel Craig’s fifth and the last bond film. No Time to Die (2020) was supposed to be released in 2020 but because of the Covid-19 outbreak, the premier got delayed and was finally released on 28 September 2021.

As for Spectre, the French actress Léa Seydoux is going to be the bond girl in No Time to Die for the second time.

The film was due to be released in April 2020, but due to the coronavirus outbreak across the globe, the release has been delayed.

Starting in 1962 with Dr No based on the 1958 novel by Ian Fleming the British spy film series took the public psyche through the first Bond actor Sean Cannery and actress Ursula Andress, a former Swiss television actress, model and sex symbol, who acted in various American, British and Italian films. The film credited Sean Connery with skyrocketing fame making him an international sensation at his old age.

Dr. No is a 1962 British spy film directed by Terence Young and starring Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond.

It is the first film in the James Bond series and is based on the 1958 novel of the same name by Ian Fleming. The film follows Bond as he is sent to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of a fellow British agent and uncovers a sinister plot by the mysterious Dr. No, a scientist and criminal mastermind who plans to disrupt a NASA rocket launch. The film was a critical and commercial success, launching the James Bond film franchise and making Connery a household name as Bond.

Bond met Ursula on Crab’s Key Island, in the Caribbean Sea, located just off the coast of Kingston, Jamaica, collecting shells. On the Island, he went to investigate on Dr. No. She told him that Dr. No might have killed her father who was a marine zoologist. Since then, she has been collecting shells around the world; in the Philippines, Mali and Hawaii. She said she has never been to school because they had an encyclopaedia.

Even though he slept with two other women in Dr. No, James Bond assailed himself with Honey Ryder in the middle of the sea after successfully destroying the nuclear plant Dr. No built against the West.

American spacecraft has been hijacked from space. America blames USSR for it and UK says it is not Russia who did it but it came from somewhere else, might be Hongkong or Japan. A foreign power launched missiles from Japan. The United States considers it would be an act of interference with its next spaceship, to be launched in 20 days.

A few days after a Russian spacecraft met the same fate by a rocket, and Spectre had taken hold of it. In Japan Bond found that the Japanese government in association with OSATO used Spectre to orchestrate the attacks on the US and Russian spacecraft in order to initiate a war between the two countries.

Bond required the Ninja training to fight along with other Japanese Secret Service operatives. In order to fulfil the requirement for the Ninja training Bond needed to become a Japanese first and had to marry a Japanese girl who must be from Ama Island of Japan, where inside an inactive volcano Osato and Spectre run their operation. Even though he wanted to marry Aki, his assistant with who he fell in love, she was not allowed to marry him. Unfortunately, Aki was poisoned and killed the night before he headed for his prospective wife on Ama Island.

Asked about Blofeld, Draco refused to tell his whereabouts to a spy of Her Majesty, but to a future son-in-law.

At her insistence, Draco told Bond that Gumbold, a lawyer in Switzerland, has a connection with Blofeld. As a loving father, he could not ignore Tracey’s insistence. He just wanted her to marry a man like Bond.

In the guise of Sir Hillary Bray, famous genealogist from the College of Arms, Bond travelled to Bleuchamp Institute of allergy research in Piz Gloria, a revolving restaurant at the 2,970 m (9,740 ft)-high summit of the Schilthorn near Mürren in the Bernese Oberland, Switzerland to meet with Bleuchamp or Blofeld, and to find out his real genealogical history.

Bleuchamp creates bacteriological warfare and possesses the Omega virus, the total infertility virus for plants and animals. Once it infects, the whole crop and grain system is destroyed forever in the designated area. The epidemic of sterility.

Bleuchamp has a lot of girls who came to the clinic to be cured of the allergy. In the name of treating them, he established his control of their mind and get them ready to be used in different parts of the world.

Tracey was taken captive by Bluechamp’s people while she was helping Bond escape from the Piz Gloria. With help of Draco, he went back to Piz Gloria to rescue Tracey and destroy the viruses and the Institute. After the operation, Tracey and Bond got married happily. But Bluechmap killed her on their way to road travel, right after the marriage.

Throughout Her Majesty’s Secret Service, I was captivated by Diana Riggs’s exquisite beauty and her wonderful voice. Her skill in ice skiing and driving seemed exceptional considering other Bond girls.

However, Bond switched the original one with the fake reproduction item that 009 stole, that he had carried during the auction.

A Russian army General reproduces the egg and auctions as original one for a hefty price. The investigation on the egg led Bond to the discovery of the Octopussy cult organisation, which smuggles diamonds and jewellery, and its destructive involvement of a Russian disgruntle general Orlov to incite war against the West.

James Bond saw Domino in Flying Saucer, Maximilian Fargo’s ship, sister of Jack Patachi who had been captive to and girlfriend of pseudo philanthropist Maximilian, through binoculars in the bay in his search for the missiles.

Maximilian, in charge of Operation The Tears of Allah, uses an American Air Force, Jack Patachi, by using right eye print to launch a missile attack on the UK. He had Jack’s right eye print matched exactly that of the president of the USA, through a corneal implant. After the implant, he was moved to a convalescence clinic near London where Fatima Blush (Barbara Carrera) an assassin of SPECTRE, was chosen for his care. James Bond was also under convalescence in the same clinic.

Jack was used to replacing the dummy warheads test is to assess the distance and accuracy of cruise-missile released from the support country with actual missile W80 thermonuclear devices which he confirmed by his cornea to make firing look like approved by the president of the USA. The missiles were intercepted and collected from under the sea by a Russian cruise ship.

After the launch, Blush killed him in a staged car crash. But the supreme commander of SPECTRE, the special executive for Counterintelligence, terrorism, revenge and extortion broadcast to the US media that the American Airforce launched two cruise missiles from the Great Britain airbase. He threatened a catastrophe unless a tribute of 25% of the annual oil purchase of the USA and UK is paid to the organisation.

The UK termed it abduction. And the countries were on the run to find out how that had happened amid the foolproof security.

Bond went on to find out the missiles and defuse them. One was planned in Washington and the other in Palmyra to destroy the well of The Tears of Allah. The Tears of Allah is a legend that Allah provided Muhammad with wells in the desert when he wept.

General Koskov sought London’s intervention in escape from the possible assassination General Pushkin planned in an opera show. Rescued, he had been exported to the UK through a gas pipeline between UK and Russia. Koskov reveals a list of ‘Smiert Spionom’ ‘Death to Spies’ to the meeting, a list of targets of British and American agents which might lead to a nuclear war in retaliation.

However, Brad Whitaker’s man got into the MI6 headquarters as a milkman and had taken captive Koskos. Whitaker was an arms dealer. In Tangier, Pushkin went to meet with Whitaker and said that the contract worth 50 $ million to buy equipment is to be cancelled, and asked for the money in 48 hours.

Even though London ordered Bond to eliminate Pushkin, Whitaker put Narcos, an assassin to eliminate him. Just because of London’s cautious move, Whitaker approves of eliminating another British agent to hasten the process.

Bond tracked down Pushkin in Tangier, a Moroccan port on the Strait of Gibraltar, and found that ‘Smiert Spionom’ ‘Death to Spies’ was a Brea operation that was deactivated 20 years ago, making it obvious that it was not Russia’s plan, and he knows nothing about Koskov. Bond proposes to Pushkin that he must die to find out what is Koskov up to. He was planned to be shot by Bond in an opera show with a bulletproof vest on.

At Whitaker’s place with him, Koskos was happy that he was able the British government to believe that Pushkin was behind the Death of Spies mission. They planned to export diamonds to Afghanistan and take Bond to the Russian authority for killing Pushkin. In Afghanistan, at the Russian airbase, Koskov handed James and Kara over to the Russian authority. 

After getting out of the Russian prison, James and Kara were joined by the Afghan resistance movement, Mujahidin.

Koskov’s plot was to buy American hi-tech weapons to use against Afghanistan. The next day on their way to Khyber Pass with the Mujahidin James realized that they were carrying raw opium. Georgi showed up there with diamonds, diamonds in exchange for opium to buy large quality of hi-tech weapons. James bunt the consignment of Opium before it reached to Whitaker.

But later on, James found that Koskov avoided the arrest by using London. He was in contract with Whitaker, the arms dealer, to buy a large quality of hi-teach weapons from America to be against the Afghan people by Russian authority.

Bond thwarted the plot of Koskov, he considered Kara as a defector for helping Bond. When she realized that she was used by Koskov for the defection, she remained with Bond throughout his operation to destroy his plot and save Afghanistan from further catastrophe. After the operation, Kara and James remained in love and she was granted a visa by Pushkin authority.

However, James fell for Pan during their professional mission. As their professional journey came to an end, James really had to break Lupe’s heart to choose the CIA agent over the drug leader’s mistress.

H.M.S. (Her Majesty’s Service) Devonshire is ashore in the International Waters in the South China Sea and two Chinese MiGs were flying over it while Carver Media Group Network, Hamburg sent a drilling machine to Devonshire. It cut through the ship and made it sink. People aboard thought the Chinese MiG passing over dropped it.

Carver Media Group Network (CMGN) fired missiles at one of the hovering MiGs and killed all the crews, except 17. The British government was, by CMGN, convinced that China caused the catastrophe because Devonshire crossed the International Waters line and advanced into China. Carver, the head of the CMGN and Worldwide media baron, owns the Tomorrow, and headlined the news targeting billion viewers or readers. Carver uses techno-terrorism for media dominance and for catchy media headlines, and uses encoder –went missing from US air force– GPS tracking system to locate ships.

The Ministry of Defence had given 48 hours to investigate. Bond needs to renew his relationship with Carver’s wife, Paris, to get closer to him. To find out if Carver or someone in his organization sent that ship off course and why.

Wai Lin the Chinese People’s External Security Force and Bond had flown to CMGN, Hamburg, Germany, Bond as a banker and Wai Lin as a Chinese newsagent.

After stealing the encoder Bond went to the US Air Base in the South China Sea, it went missing from the US air force. It was used to manipulate Devonshire’s GPS tracking position
Lin and Bond exploded the Stealth boat in Ha Long Bay, was belong to General Chang of Vietnam, from where Carver controls to attack Devonshire by manipulating its GPS tracking position. He creates chaos in the media to provide with coverage with cool and objective coverage. He has planned to kill all the Chinese leaders for General Change to take over so he may be granted exclusive broadcasting rights for 100 years.

Bond and Lin ruined Carver’s Stealth that stopped a war between the UK and China. James and Lin, the two secret agents of the two countries made détente in sharing kisses.

Elektra King killed her father Sir Robert King for not paying the ransom money while she was kidnapped by Renard and took over her father’s business of construction of the pipeline in the Caspian Sea. Renard was an anarchist, who killed King by delivering his money from the Swiss Bank through James Bond.

Bond brought the money to the MI6 headquarters in London from Swiss Bank. In one of the notes, the anti-counterfeiting strip was replaced with magnesium which acted as a detonator. And King’s lapel pin was switched for a copy that contained a radio transmitter to trigger the blast. In other words, he set off the bomb that killed him.

Bond caught Renard stealing a bomb in collaboration with a Russian general from the Russian Atomic Energy Department, where Christmas works as a physicist. He also stole a submarine from Russian authority. They want the submarine to use as the reactor.

By putting weapons-grade plutonium in that submarine’s reactor, they were up to creating a nuclear meltdown. The explosion would destroy Istanbul contaminating the Bosporus for decades and killing 8 million people. The intention was to take control of the oil business.

When, as a nuclear scientist, Dr. Christmas found out that a plutonium bomb has been stolen by the greatest terrorist Renard, she helped Bond to stop Renard to put a weapons-grade plutonium rod in the submarine’s reactor. After killing Elektra, and Renard and blowing up the submarine, Bond indulged himself in bodily warmth with Christmas.

However, unlike in any other Bond film, in The World is Not Enough, Bond himself had to kill his love bait Elektra King, the woman who usually belonged to a villain or married to his counterpart.

For that Dr. Alvarez first needs to kill off one’s bone marrow, wipe the DNA slate clean, and then introduces new DNA harvested from healthy donors – orphans, runaways, and people that won’t be missed.

Bond met Jinx, an undercover NSA agent, on Los Organos Island, in the sunset while he was looking for Zao. The next morning leaving Bond at the hotel room, Giacinta headed for the Alvarez clinic where Bond also headed for Zao.

However, she killed Dr. Alvarez in the chamber in the guise of a patient. Zao was under treatment for transformation from his current state to a different person targeted person. She was also after Zao. He got away but left a diamond from Gustav’s’ mine.

Bond started his journey to find out Eclipsis that left a text on a bomber’s cell phone in Madagascar. The text was sent by Lex Dimitrios, an associate of Le Chiffre, a private banker to the world’s terrorists, from the Ocean Club in Nassau, the Bahamas.

However, Dimitrios lost his car and a big bait to Bond in the Casino of Ocean Club, where he first saw his wife. Bond needed to hook Dimitrios’ beautiful wife Solange to learn about his movements. With love, he hooked her.

Informed that Le Chiffre plays casino on his client’s money and who never loses, when Bond failed Skyfleet bombing, airline the prototype, it cost Le Chiffre 100 million dollars. In order to stop him, Bond must play him off in the Casino. Money was supplied by the British treasury.

Vesper Lynd, International Liaison Officer of Her Majesty’s Treasury travelled to Montenegro to the game of casino in the Casino Royale. They showed up as husband and wife in the club. Bond won 150 million dollars making Le Chiffre a critical defrauder to his clients, which led to accepting his death at Mr. White’s gun when Le Chiffre was torturing Bond to return the money.

Eva Green and Daniel Craig in Casino Royale -2006

I liked the sarcasm between Eva Green and Daniel Craig, very funny. I found it the most romantic film among all other 007 films. Eva Green is a beloved to James and her deep look and the romantic conversation have taken this film to a new height.

The heart-breaking part is that the moment James decided to spend his life with her, she had withdrawn the money, that Bond won in Casino, and headed to deliver them to Le Chiffre’s men, who kidnapped her Algerian boyfriend, Yusef Kabira. They blackmailed her to kill him if Vesper does not cooperate in handing the money to them. But Mr. White got away with the money, but Bond followed him. Arrested, was brought to MI6 Siena office.

However, Vesper was killed and buried in the acropolis in a counterattack between the cohort of Le Chiffre, Mr White and James Bond. Later he got to know that, that night when Mr. White killed Le Chiffre and his men, he spared Bond because she promised him to deliver the money to him. She made the deal to spare his life in exchange for the money.

Mr White was taken captive by Bond to Siena Italy and escaped as got M’s bodyguard, Mitchell stormed. MI6 did a forensic analysis of the money they found in his wallet. It introduced tagged bills into Le Chiffre’s money-laundering operation by intercepting illegal payoffs. Then they traced money through several of his bank accounts around the world.

They found that some Bills were deposited into a bank account of Mr Slate in Port au Prince Haiti. Mr Slate stays at Hotel Dessalines 325 in Port au Prince. Bond took hold of Slate’s documents in a briefcase, but Camille snatched the briefcase away and Bond followed her to Kings Key, to Dominic Greene, her Captor and CEO of Greene Planet.

Camille was rather expecting a zoologist hired for the document where she found out that Dominic had sent someone to kill her, where he already had Mr Slate killed. She was sleeping with Dominic to get to General Medrano, a Bolivian dictator, who killed her family.

Dominic promises General Medrano to destabilise the country by creating a coup to assume himself as the prime minister and got 26 countries to recognise his countries in exchange for a desert part, where Dominic is planning to establish the Tierra Project to control the water supply, of Bolivia as a part of the deal Dominic handed Camile over to General Medrano.

After killing Medrano, and Green and destroying their Tiera Project Greene started to control the water supply of Bolivia. Bond and Camille shared merely a kiss and parted their ways: Camille remained in Bolivia while Bond travelled to Russia to follow Yusef Kabira, her boyfriend of Vesper. Bond shared his bed with his fellow female officer, Field during their mission.

Along with Camile with who Bond had operated the mission to stop Dominic Greene’s exploitative intent on poor Bolivian people by a corrupt dictator, Bond was seen involved romantically with his fellow operative, Miss Field.

A computer drive containing the identity of almost every NATO agent embedded in terrorist organizations across the globe was stolen from the MI6 office in Istanbul. In the mission to retrieve the hard drive, Bond had Eve as his assistant. In the middle of a fight with the man who possessed the drive on the roof of the running train, M speculated the possibility of losing bonds or other agents. Therefore, she orders Eve to take the shot, even though not clean. However, it hit Bond causing him to be drawn into the river.

Even though M wrote the obituary on Bond, thinking he was dead, he appeared in her apartment in one evening after seeing the news on the MI6 headquarter bombing. The shrapnel fragments from his body analysis revealed that it was Patrice who stole the list and put bullets in him. Intel and the CIA have been looking for him. Bond headed for Shanghai to kill the man who put a bullet through his heart during the fight. In Shanghai Bond killed the man and showed up in the Casino where he met the woman, whom he saw in an adjacent apartment while Patrice.

With less romance, Skyfall is a mission to kill an outlawed, disgruntled and given-up MI6 operative turned avenger and cyber-terrorist, Silva. He prepared a list comprising other MI6 agents to be killed gradually. James Bond’s mission to retrieve the list led him to Shanghai to Patrice and to Macau in a Casino where he found his love bait, Severine, belonged to the sex trade. Silva was her employer and lover.

Surviving the fight in the Casino, he showed up in Severine’s apartment. But they were captured and taken to the Island that belongs to Mr Silva, from where he operates cyber-attacks and rigs elections on behalf of the highest bidder, and in the meantime bombed MI6 headquarters. It cost Bond his Severine to get to Silva and arrest him.

Silva escaped from the MI6 Isolation chamber by hacking the security system after being captured and interrogated. Bond single-handedly took the operation to stop Silva out of his sheer obedience to his protector, M, the head of the MI6. To do so he let Silva and his men follow to the Skyfall.

Skyfall is the name of the place where, in Scotland, James Bond was born and grew up where Silva’s and his men followed to kill M. But instead of killing, they became the kills entrapped in Skyfall’s mischievousness. However, M died there from bleeding from a gunshot. Later James found out that the field operation who shot him on the running train and had a one-night stand in Shanghai was Eve, Eve Moneypenny.

Bond foiled a stadium bombing plan in Mexico by Marco Sciarra, a Spectre operative. James went back to Marco Sciarra’s funeral in Rome, Italy. He followed his widow, Lucia to her place right after the funeral and made her his love bait to get to the organisation, and to know about The Pale King or Mt White who was arrested in the Casino Royale and escaped in Quantum of Solace.

The Spectre controls 70% of antimalarial vaccines, 34% of H.I.V., and 40% of all oncological drugs across Sub-Saharan Africa with fake drugs. Now faces challenges from the WHO in their campaign against our counterfeit pharmaceuticals. They attacked in Hamburg and Tunisia.

From Rome to Altaussee, Austria Bond travelled to trail Mr White, who had been disowned by Spectre. MI6 findings tell that Sciarra, Silva, Le Chiffre, and Greene were linked to Spectre. Once traced Mr. White in his isolated house, James asked about L’Ame’ricain and promised him to protect his daughter, Dr. Madeleine Swann, a psychoanalyst. Before committing suicide Mr. White told him to try Swann at Hoffler Klinik in Austria.

Bond needs L’Ame’ricain to get to Franz Oberhauser or Blofeld. But Dr. Swann informed that L’Ame’ricain is not a person’s name, but the name of a place, a hotel in Tangier. From Tangier to North Africa, he found Blofeld or Franz Oberhauser in his information centre in the middle of the African desert.

Bond needs L’Ame’ricain to get to Franz Oberhauser, not a person, a place in Tangier. Franz Oberhauser was a lover and torturer of Dr. Swann. They went to the same hotel room of L’Ame’ricain where he would bring her every year. Mr. White worked for Franz Oberhauser as an assassin.

Blofeld told Dr. Swann that James was his cousin, and grew up together after his parents’ death. Blofeld had a connection with Max Denbigh, head of the Joint Security Service. Max is his chief of intelligence, owner of the global surveillance system built under the very nose of MI6, through which Spectre hopes to take control of everything.

However, the two jointly were able to blow the information centre up and headed for London to stop Max from broadcasting his surveillance system, but Blofeld survived and was taken captive to MI6.

In London, Dr. Swann chose to part her way from Bond. But soon found herself bound inside the building from where Max operated his surveillance system. Bond entered the building only to find Blofeld and Bombs put on 3 minutes. Just before the blast Bond, found Swann and jumped off the building. Bond and Swann ended up as lover and beloved. Married.

26. No Time To Die (2021)

No Time to Die is the longest and most-awaited Bond film of all, I guess. Longest because it is 2:43 minutes long whereas the shortest Bond film is the Quantum of Solace, 1:46 minutes. It is where a new female 007 has been introduced. Married to Dr. Madeleine Swann from Spectre, the new female version of 007 was in the lead from the Cuba operation to The Poison Garden mission. It introduces a new, and female 007.

Even though the 007 fans had to wait for two years for the film to be released, it finally came out in December 2021, due to the Covid-19 worldwide pandemic. Somehow, the film also predicted something similar to the COVID-19 infection, where quarantine was the most essential part to stop the spreading of the virus. The people close to infected persons by the nanobots or DNA-targeting were advised quarantine in No Time to Die was seen to be developed.

In Italy, a bomb exploded at Vesper Lynd’s gravesite, as James went to visit it. Spectre follows them there in Italy. After a fierce fight, James sends Madeleine away.

Valdo Obruchev was kidnapped from a secret MI6 lab in London. He was developing a DNA-targeting weapon, Heracles, designed to save lives and eradicate collateral damage for our agents. It was thought to be the most efficient weapon in our arsenal. But Obruchev modified the nanobots so that they could kill anyone.

Since it’s DNA-based, with further modifications, it can kill Families, and certain genetic traits. Single-nucleotide variants and polymorphisms that could target a range of individuals to whole ethnicities. You infect enough people. And the people become the weapon.

Nanobots are developed using people’s DNA. its microscopic bio-robots can enter your system by the slightest contact with skin. Programmed with DNA to target specific individuals. Lyutsifer Safin kidnapped and produced millions of DNS profiling in disputed waters between Japan and Russia, The Poison Garden. Lyutsifer Safin also kidnapped James Bond’s wife, Dr. Madeleine Swann, the daughter.

James Bond, along with Nomi, the new Bond, landed on the Island to rescue and destroy the mass-producing farm of Nanobots. Bond sent his wife and daughter ahead with Nomi to stay behind to kill Lyutsifer Safin. But James got infected with the nanobots there and chose to be there, while the missiles launched to destroy the entire Island and the plant. The life of Bond ended there, only to conclude the sequel, I guess.

From Ursula Andress of Dr. No in 1962 to Spectre in 2015 there are about 76 Bond girls for whom Bond usually has a love interest or sidekick, a slang expression meaning a companion or colleague who is usually regarded as subordinate to who she accompanies. A bond girl is typically at least ten years younger than the leading protagonist, James Bond.

Even though there are more than one actresses with whom Bond has a sexual encounter there is usually only one main sidekick Bond Girl in each film. As we know in the last film Spectre the main sidekick was Dr Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) and remains the for the No Time to Die.

Noticeably, the bond girls wear little to no makeup and no nail polish as well as they keep their nails short. Their hair may be any colour, though they typically wear it in a natural or casual cut that falls heavily to their shoulders. Their features, especially their eyes and mouths, are often widely spaced. Their eyes are usually blue and sometimes this is true to an unusual and striking degree.

Nevertheless, the world and the film lovers have yet another occasion to look forward to celebrating with great enthusiasm. As a film enthusiast, I can only tell you how hard it is to wait for a film which is to be released and nothing can be more awarding than to watch a much-awaited film, after all.

James Bonds: actors who appeared in all 27 Bond films

Sean Connery appeared in 7 films as James Bond, while Peter Stellers 1 and George Lazenby appeared in only 1 film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in 1969, legendary Roger Moore appeared in 7 films consecutively from 1973 to 1985, Timothy Dalton did 2 films, Pierce Brosnan appeared in 4 films as Daniel Craig already prepped in four films and No Time to Die (2020) is going to be his 5th and last film which was released on September 2021. However, along with the James Bond films themselves, Bond girls, most of the time keep us apprehended and riveted to the screen.

Sean Connery

Sean Connery, 007

The Scottish 6.2″ tall handsome actor appeared in 7 bond films between 1962 to 1983 with a host of other notable films. With a deep Scottish accent, Thomas Sean Connery was born in Edinburgh, Scotland on August 25, 1930. His father Joseph Cannery was a factory worker and truck driver.

The Australian-born actor George Lazenby was born on September 5, 1939, in New South Wales. The actor moved to London after serving in the Australian Army in 1964. Before he made his way to be an actor, he was involved in various professions such as automobile mechanics, selling preowned cars and being a male model, in London.

Even though he appeared in only one bond film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969), he acted in many TV series and films and was the highest-paid male model in Europe before his career as James Bond.

Roger Moore

The legendary British actor Roger Moore also served in the British military during WWII. He was born on October 14, 1927, in Stockholm, London to a family of a policeman. His mother was born in Calcutta, India, to a British family.

Roger’s career as an actor started in 1953 in the United Stated with Metro-Goldwyn Meyer. His role as James Bond started with Live and Let Die in 1973 in which he portrayed his predecessor Sean Cannery.

Live and Let Die (1973), The Man with Golden Gun (1974), The Spy Who Loves Me (1977), Moonraker (1979), For Your Eyes Only (1981), Octopussy (1983) and A View to Kill (1985) are the films played the role of James Bond.

For his services in UNICEF and Kiwanis International, Roger Moore was awarded Knighthood in 2003. He died of prostate cancer in Switzerland at 86, on 23 May 2017.

James bond Timothy Dalton

Born on March 21, 1946, Timothy Dalton was a trained Shakespearian actor who already made his career in television, theatre and films. Especially his role as Sir Laurence Olivier in Wuthering Heights (1970). But the Scottish actor’s role as a James Bond started with The Living Daylight in 1987. Dalton, the green-eyed actor, officially resigned from the role of James Bond in April 1994 hoping for fresh challenges and the role subsequently went on to Pierce Brosnan. The Living Daylights (1987) and Licence to Kill (1989) are Dalton’s acted films.

Pierce Brosnan

Pierce Brosnan.

The Irish actor Pierce Brendan Brosnan was born on May 16, 1953, to a smith and carpenter family. His famous James Bond films are GoldenEye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), The World Is Not Enough (1999) and Die Another Day (2002).

Was selected as one of the “50 Most Beautiful People by the USA magazine, People in 1996 and was voted as “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2001.

He was terminated from the role of James Bond because the producers did not want to renew the contract with him making him the only actor to resign not on his will.

Daniel Craig

The struggling actor Daniel Craig who had to toil in the restaurant kitchen as a waiter is one of the famous faces in the British theatre. From a teenage actor in the National Youth Theatre Daniel Craig rose up to be a much talk-about celebrity in Hollywood. He appeared in Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), Spectre (2015) and No Time To Die (2020).

Seventh James Bond, Daniel Craig
Daniel Craig.

Born on March 2, 1968, in England, he was raised by his older sister Lea as their parents split up in 1972. Daniel’s interest in acting grows stronger when he saw Roger Moore’s Live and Let Die when he was just five.

Being a film enthusiast I myself enjoyed all the rest 26 films from the James Bond series. I hope that Daniel Craig’s fifth and reportedly the last Bond film would keep riveted the film lovers’ eyes to the screen. But the probable conclusion of James Bond and the Bond girls chapter will come as a big surprise for many film lovers.


Among the interesting features of 007 films are getting to know different cultures, festivals, exotic places, beautiful Islands, various actresses from various nations and new technological innovations and scientifically advanced ways of saving people’s lives. Every new leading female face in every new film kept us wondering and captivated for 60 years.

Whether 007 films were sexist or showcased killing sprees by a licenced killer is purely a matter of perspective, I guess. But I love watching hard-hearted men’s romance as much as the elimination of evil power tended to rise to disturb the peace among the common people. The office secretary of M, Miss Moneypenny has been dreaming for Bond to do something for her. Even though Bond was seen to be sleeping with more or less 60 women, throughout all the 27 007 films James Bond was never seen to sleep with Miss Moneypenny, but only the professional flirts, except in Skyfall.

I have found Sean Connery the most passionate kisser, while Daniel Craig the most agile, swift and humorous man as Bond. Daniel Craig’s stunt and ruthless attitude thorough Casino Royale to No Time to Die. However, Roger More is the best and most articulate conversationist of all. As for Bond’s female counterparts, I am fascinated by Diana Riggs and Lois Chiles’s soulful voices.
