Honor Blackman

Honor Blackman (1925-2020) was one of the classic sultry actresses of the 1960s and beyond. She moved from movie and theater work and then to TV as John Steed's first leather-clad associate in the Avengers (a role that would be taken later on by Diana Rigg). In 1964 she became a Bond girl as 007's love interest in Goldfinger. She kept acting long after that, appearing in TV and movies, and on the stage. She had TV roles as late as 2015, and died in 2020 at the ripe age of 95.
