Former Bond Girl Molly Peters has passed away at age 75.
Peters previously starred in the 1965 film “Thunderball” opposite Sean Connery. The Daily Express reported Peters was the first Bond Girl to remove her clothes on-screen.
Despite her fame, Peters still had trouble understanding the public’s fascination with her.
“Because I was blonde, I had a tan, and wore a white dress, people wanted to touch me,” she said. “I found that very strange. And I think it was because of the different coloring — I don’t know. Or perhaps, in their eyes I’d become something unattainable to them. I don’t know what it was.”
Peters wasn’t the only star from the 007 franchise to pass away recently. On May 23, Roger Moore’s children announced on Twitter that the former James Bond actor died at age 89.
“With the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today. We are all devastated,” the statement said.
