With her enviable figure and come-hither looks, actress Linda Christian fit the role of a James Bond girl to a tee. In fact, the Hollywood starlet was the first actress to ever appear as a Bond girl with her role on the TV adaptation of "Casino Royale" (CBS, 1954), based on the 1953 spy novel of the same name by Ian Fleming and was televised as part of the network's drama anthology "Climax!" (1954-58). Prior to this, Christian had made strides in her career with roles in "Up in Arms" (1944) and "Tarzan and the Mermaids" (1948), before becoming the envy of women everywhere when she married Hollywood heartthrob and swashbuckling star Tyrone Power in 1949. Marital problems and rumors of extramarital affairs, however, overshadowed Christian's career until their divorce in 1955. While the actress faded from public view, she did continue appearing in lesser films and TV series up until the late 1980s. But was her role as a curvaceous, bikini-clad Bond girl that punctuated her career and made Christian an iconic screen siren.
