Original Bond girl Eunice Gayson dies at 90

Eunice Gayson, famous for being the first "Bond girl" in the 007 franchise, just passed away according to Hollywood executives who worked on the film series.

Gayson played Sylvia Trench in the 1962 James Bond franchise starter Dr. No, starring Sean Connery as Bond.

Her passing was announced on Saturday through her official Twitter feed.

Eunice Gayson, the actress who played the first Bond girl, has died at the age of 90.

'An incredible lady who left a lasting impression on everyone she met. She proposed they raise the stakes, and Bond said, "I admire you're courage, Miss er...?" to which she replied, "Trench". Someone with access to the account let fans know that Gayson had passed away on Friday, June 8. On the actresses Twitter page, her family wrote that she was an extraordinary person who always had a tremendous impression on the people she met. Over a game of cards at the Le Cercle Club casino, Bond asks her for her name. I admire your luck, Mr'.

However, the catchphrase was a tricky one to get right, with Eunice telling the BBC in 2012: '[Sean] had to say Bond, James Bond, but he came out with other permutations like Sean Bond, James Connery.

A fact many people don't know is that while she appeared in the Bond films, her lines were actually recorded by voiceover artist Nikki van der Zyl. A striking presence, Gayson's voice was nevertheless dubbed over by another actress in both films. British-born Gayson went on to star in classic TV series like The Saint and The Avengers over a 50-year career, per the Daily News. "We went back on set and he said the name "Bond, James Bond" in a lovely way".
