Biography

Swedish-born model-turned-actress Maud Adams enjoyed the distinction of being the only woman to appear as two separate "Bond Girls" in a pair of entries from the massively successful James Bond film franchise. Already one of the highest paid models of the late-1960s, Adams began appearing in films by the turn of the decade and made an impression on moviegoers as the latest Bond Girl in "The Man with the Golden Gun" (1974), starring Roger Moore. With her popularity at its peak, she was quickly cast in several high-profile projects, such as the science-fiction classic "Rollerball" (1975), opposite James Caan. Although she had established herself based largely on her beauty, Adams garnered critical kudos for her work on projects like the acclaimed Holocaust docudrama "Playing for Time" (CBS, 1980) and the under-seen obsession tale "Tattoo" (1981), co-starring Bruce Dern. She then made pop culture history by becoming the only two-time Bond Girl in "Octopussy" (1983), in which she was once again seduced by Moore's dashing secret agent. Attempts at an ongoing television series, such as the primetime soap "Emerald Point N.A.S." (CBS, 1983-84) failed to pan out for the actress, who wound down her career with direct-to-video thrillers like "The Kill Reflex" (1989) and various projects on Swedish television. A statuesque beauty of intelligence and refinement, Adams remained a favorite amongst Bond fans, who appreciated the class she brought to the status of Bond Girls everywhere.
