As one of the more underrated Bond girls, actress Carey Lowell followed in the footsteps of Ursula Andress, Jill St. John and Barbara Bach to play CIA agent Pam Bouvier opposite Timothy Dalton in "License to Kill" (1989). Eschewing the typical wallflower personas of some previous Bond girls, Lowell adopted a tough and confrontational style while still maintaining plenty of glamour. While many actresses had benefited from their own Bond girl turns, Lowell struggled for almost a decade following the high-profile role, landing ever diminishing parts in "The Guardian" (1990), "Road to Ruin" (1992) and "Love Affair" (1994). Eventually, however, she had a regular series role as district attorney Jamie Ross on the popular and long-running procedural "Law & Order" (NBC, 1990-2010), but left after two seasons to focus on being a mother to the daughter she had with first husband, actor Griffin Dunne. From there, her career took a back seat to family, particularly after she separated from Dunne and later married Richard Gere, though she did make appearances in "Empire Falls" (HBO, 2005) and on "Six Degrees" (ABC, 2006-07). Regardless of her inconsistent career, Lowell would forever be tied to one of the most profitable and longest-running movie franchises in cinema history.
