Some Facts
Became pregnant during the filming of Carry on Nurse (1959).
Possibly most recognized because of her role in Goldfinger (1964), her character was killed only 16 minutes into the movie.
Appeared on the stage at London's Price of Wales Theatre as one of the lead roles in "Come Blow Your Horn" while busily filming The Girl Hunters (1963). The film's co-star, Mickey Spillane, became a family friend as a result of the shoot.
Contrary to Hollywood folklore, she did not test for the part of Emma Peel in The Avengers (1961) when it was found that Elizabeth Shepherd was unsuitable for the part. The part eventually went to Diana Rigg.
She had appeared at the London Palladium three times, once when she was 17 and performing in a pantomime, and then in the early 1960s at two annual Royal Variety Performance galas that included Nat 'King' Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., Bob Hope and Maurice Chevalier. When in 2008 she appeared again, this time to celebrate the new James Bond film phenomenon, she received a standing ovation.
Personal Quotes
[on Paul Rabafer, her makeup artist on 'Goldfinger'] He was as impersonal about gilding me as if he was painting a barn.

The reason why people are huge stars is nothing to do with acting. It's the magic. Charisma is a word that's used too often, it's something special and it's what makes stars. It's luck and basically it's genes.

[1999, interview in Starlog magazine] A career is a career, but you're a mother until you die.

I'm very expressive, but I'm also a very private person. It is so hard to be private in the entertainment business. I'm really glad that I was famous and successful at the time I was because it was bad enough then in a profession which tended to eat you up and never give you any free time. But I think that the youngsters today have a really bad time from every angle.
