From our Terry O’Neill collection, Honor Blackman poses on the beach as her character Pussy Galore in Ian Fleming’s Goldfinger.
The London born Blackman received acting lessons on her 15th birthday and immediately started training at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Honor Blackman starred in several prominent films and series such as The Avengers (‘62-‘64), Jason and the Argonauts (‘63) and Shalako (‘68). However she is most known for her role as bond girl Pussy Galore in 1964. When casted opposite of Sean Connery for the James Bond film the director Albert R Broccoli stated "The Brits would love her because they knew her as Mrs. Gale (the Avengers), the Yanks would like her because she was so good, it was a perfect combination".
