The quintessential Bond girl, Swiss actress Ursula Andress pioneered the role as Honey Ryder in the first James Bond film, "Dr. No," in 1962. Her opening appearance in the scene, emerging from the Caribbean sea in a white bikini to greet Sean Connery as Bond, is considered one of the classic moments in cinema and earned her a Golden Globe.
After appearing in films with Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, Andress played Vesper Lynd in the 1967 Bond satire "Casino Royale," but she was never able to replicate the fanfare of "Dr. No." When she gave birth to her only child at 44 -- the father is Harry Hamlin -- Andress, now 76, scaled back her career, focusing mainly on European films.
