Eunice Gayson, who was known as the very first woman to bring a Bond girl to life on the big screen, passed away at the age of 90.


Gayson drew her last breath on June 8, 2018, and even though she had a discreet career, she still managed to become a true Hollywood legend thanks to her performances in the James Bond franchise.

She was the only Bond girl to appear in two Bond movies and the news of her death was shared with her fans and followers on James Bond's official Twitter account.

"We are very sad to learn that our dear Eunice passed away on June 8th. An amazing lady who left a lasting impression on everyone she met. She will be very much missed."

Gayson was born in Surrey, England, in 1928 and had quite a few onscreen roles such as in The Revenge of Frankenstein, Hello London, To Have and to Hold, Out of the Clouds and Miss Robin Hood.

Although she had many other roles, the most famous one was Sylvia Trench, the famous Bond Girl that helped the world's most famous spy create his catchphrase in Dr. No.

In 1962, Gayson, as Trench, met Sean Connery's James Bond at the Le Cercle Club during a game of cards. After she suggested they raise the stakes, Bond praised her courage.


Upon being asked for her name, Trench replied, 'Trench. Sylvia Trench. I admire your luck, Mister...?'

The following line would then become the franchise's most well-known mark: 'Bond. James Bond.'

After that, Gayson's character reappeared in the film's sequel, From Russia with Love. Trench was supposed to become a recurring character, but Guy Hamilton, the director of Goldfinger, scrapped the idea.

The actress, whose daughter, Kate Gayson, made a cameo in Goldeneye, lived a quiet life after that, with appearances on TV shows such as The Saint and The Avengers.
