Since Wai Lin wouldn't succumb to Bond until the end of "Tomorrow Never Dies," he had to get his kicks somewhere else. Hatcher plays Paris Carver, wife of the evil media mogul Elliot Carver, and, conveniently, Bond's ex-girlfriend. The spy seduces Paris and gets her to spill details that help him break into her husband's newspaper headquarters. When the evil Elliot finds out, he has her killed.
Hatcher's career, on the other hand, went chugging on thanks to Bond. She landed the role of Susan Mayer in "Desperate Housewives," the juicy ABC drama that ended its eight season run earlier this year.
