    Eunice Gayson, the first ever Bond girl, died Friday. She was 90.

    Gayson’s Twitter account posted the news, writing that she was “an amazing lady who left a lasting impression on everyone she met. She will be very much missed.”

    Gayson played Sylvia Trench in the 1962 “James Bond” franchise starter “Dr. No,” starring Sean Connery as Bond. She first asked Bond for his name at a card table, resulting in the iconic, “Bond. James Bond.” She reprised her role as Trench in “From Russia With Love.”

    James Bond movie producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli also remembered Grayson on Saturday in a tweet posted to the James Bond official Twitter account.

    “We are so sad to learn that Eunice Gayson, our very first ‘Bond girl’ who played Sylvia Trench in ‘Dr. No’ and ‘From Russia With Love’ has passed away. Our sincere thoughts are with her family.”

    R.I.P.....

    But no way she was the 'first Bond-girl'. That's ridiculous.


    It was Ursula Andress all the way. She was on every poster and playbill... inventing 'the wet look', in sort of a bikini and a knife-belt. In fact her image was responsible for the giant movie-poster craze in the mid-60's.


    Or John Derek was...

    I agree that Ursula Andress was the first "Bond Girl". My dad had a thing for her.
