Though she had a handful of roles before becoming a Bond girl, Seymour's portrayal of Solitaire in 1973's "Live and Let Die" is really what launched her Hollywood career. She catches the eye of Bond, played by Roger Moore, but her looks aren't her only talent. Solitaire's ability to read tarot cards and see into the future makes her an asset to Bond and his enemy, Dr. Kananga -- that is, until she loses her virginity to Bond and saps her psychic skills in the process.
Last month Seymour revealed some of the real drama that went down on the set of "Live and Let Die." She told Britain's Hello! magazine that while shooting the climax of the movie, in which Bond saves Solitaire from a voodoo sacrifice, Moore actually ended up saving her life.
"We were supposed to descend into a grave together, but it all went horribly wrong," she said. "The gravestone was actually a forklift truck in disguise and as the guy operating it pressed the wrong button, it collapsed. I could have plummeted into the chasm, but Roger instinctively grabbed my hair and pulled me towards him. I fell on top of him, on his private parts, which must have hurt."
