Beautiful Bond Girls come and go but dangerous Bond Girls compete to take out mutual adversaries. We list the 5 most dangerous Bond Girls and allow you to vote on many more.
Naomi – The Spy Who Loved Me
Caroline Monro played the ill-fated helicopter pilot Naomi in the Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me. In one of the franchise’s most memorable car chase sequences, she seductively winks at Bond while trying to gun him down from her helicopter. In her role as Naomi, she holds the distinction of being the first woman ever undeniably killed by James Bond.
Pros: Helicopter pilot, Machine gun operator. Knows how to operate both at the same time.
Con: Some say she picked the wrong side, others believe she was too busy flirting with Bond to take a clear shot.
Pussy Galore – Goldfinger
Pussy Galore is the owner of a flying circus. Gorgeous women are her only employees and they are very precise and loyal. She was the main part of the plan to take on Fort Knox along with Goldfinger’s henchmen. Unfortunately, her time was split between planning the biggest heist the world has ever seen and keeping James Bond too busy to notice.
Honor Blackman who played the character of Pussy Galore actually worked for MI5 for some time before she started her acting career where she landed the role of Mrs. Gale on the 60’s spy show The Avengers.
Pros: Has a name and a face that can stop any man in his tracks, business woman, mature, can handle muscle, not afraid of James Bond or her employee.
Cons: A name you really can’t take seriously, flying circus? Gives in to Bond’s charm
Wai Len – Tomorrow Never Dies
Wai Lin is a spy for the Chinese People’s External Security Force in the rank of colonel and skilled in martial arts. She first encounters Bond when she is sent (under the disguise as a Xinhua News Agency reporter) to investigate the disappearance of stealth material from a People’s Liberation Army base that is connected to media mogul Elliot Carver’s plan to start a war between the People’s Republic of China and the United Kingdom.
Super agent Wai Len has her own secret gadget lair that would make even Q, the quartermaster who provides James Bond with all his dangerous toys, jealous. Relentless in her pursuit of her investigation and target, James Bond at first seems to be in the way but proves to be a reliable ally in taking down Carver and preventing war.
Pros: Self reliant, martial arts, can scale walls and mean with a machine gun, perfect passenger on a motorcycle.
Cons: I haven’t found one yet.
Jinx – Die Another Day
Giacinta “Jinx” Johnson is an NSA agent who joins with Bond to spy on Gustav Graves and his conflict diamonds. She’s backed up by the US government and it’s apparent from the beginning that she also has a license to kill after shooting a prominent doctor at a private clinic in Havana.
Jinx knows that James Bond is an agent even though he is under an assumed identity and considers him a means to an end in causing mayhem while investigating and tracking Graves from Cuba to Iceland.
Pros: Handy with a sword, NSA agent, License to kill
Con: Apparently icy situations is not her forte
Miss Moneypenny – Skyfall
Now, who would have thought that Miss Moneypenny was a gun toting assassin with an itchy trigger. Trained by MI6 as an assassin and floating box, Monneypenny accidently shoots Bond off a moving train while trying to prevent a hard drive with floating box and hunting pack MI6 agents from coming out in the open.
In previous incarnations, Miss Moneypenny is the secretary to M with top secret clearance forever trying to bed and wed James Bond but in Skyfall she is her own woman in the field and can manage changing situations as they happen.
Four actresses portrayed Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond film series. Let’st see if there are more surprises on hand with the new Moneypenny incarnation.
Pros: Paid attention in car chasing class, top secret clearance, resourceful field agent
Cons: Handy with a rifle but not with moving targets.
