Miss Moneypenny

Bond star Lois Maxwell dies at 80

Actress Lois Maxwell, who starred as Miss Moneypenny in a string of James Bond movies, has died aged 80.

Maxwell starred alongside Sir Sean Connery in Bond’s first movie outing, Dr No, in 1962.

She played the role until 1985’s A View To A Kill with Sir Roger Moore, who told the BBC she had been a “great asset” to the early Bond movies.

A spokesperson for Fremantle Hospital, Western Australia, said she died there on Saturday evening.

Maxwell starred in 14 Bond films as the secretary to M, the secret agent’s boss and head of the secret service. [read more]

Was there ever another Moneypenny? I certainly never noticed. It’s funny, when you think about it, she didn’t have hardly any screen time, and yet she was an essential fixture in the James Bond movies.

Rest in peace, Miss Moneypenny.
