Confirmed James Bond girls scheduled to attend this show:
• FSWL supporter Barbara Carrera, a Nicaraguan American film and television actress and former model. She is best known for her roles as Bond girl Fatima Blush in Never Say Never Again (1983) and as Angelica Nero on the soap opera Dallas. For her portrayal of the villainess Fatima Blush in the James Bond film Never Say Never Again, she earned a 1984 Golden Globe nomination for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture".

Carrera began a career as a model at the Eileen Ford agency at the age of 17 at which point she changed her last name to her mother's maiden name, Carrera. In 1972, she appeared on the screen in a publicity role for the Chiquita bananas. Her first film role was as a fashion model in Puzzle of a Downfall Child (1970), which fared poorly at the box office. In 1976, she earned her first Golden Globe nomination ("New Star of the Year - Actress") for her role in The Master Gunfighter (1975). She later played in such films as Embryo (1976), The Island of Dr. Moreau (1977), Condorman (1981), Lone Wolf McQuade (1983), Point of Impact (1993) and Tryst (1994).

She worked opposite Laurence Olivier in Wild Geese II (1985) directed by Peter Hunt who directed George Lazenby in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969).

On television, she played a prominent part in the historical miniseries Centennial in 1978 and Masada (opposite Peter O'Toole and Peter Strauss) in 1981. These roles brought her to the mainstream attention of American audiences. She also starred as Emma Forsayth in the miniseries Emma: Queen of the South Seas in 1988.

Carrera has appeared on the pages and covers of such magazines as Vogue, Paris Match, Harper's Bazaar, and twice posed for Playboy (July 1973 and March 1982).

In 1997, she was appointed ambassador-at-large for Nicaragua by then-president Arnoldo Alemán.

She is also an artist and her work has been showcased in the Makk Galleries in Beverly Hills, California since the 1980s, and the Roy Miles Gallery in London, England. In May 2002, her works were exhibited at the Hollywood Entertainment Museum and have typically been sold for up to 8,000 USD.

Priscilla Barnes is an American actress known for her role as nurse Terri Alden on the American television sitcom Three's Company, having been made the permanent replacement for Suzanne Somers. Barnes subsequently made appearances in films such as A Vacation in Hell, the James Bond thriller Licence to Kill, the Kevin Smith comedy Mallrats and the horror film The Devil's Rejects.

Barnes' first break came when Bob Hope saw her in a local fashion show and invited her to join his troupe for a 1973 performance at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. She subsequently moved to Los Angeles to attempt a career in show business in earnest. Her second break came at 19 when she met Peter Falk at Pips. Six months later he gave her a one-line part in an episode of Columbo, which led to a series of bit parts in films like The Seniors (1978) and Delta Fox (1979).

While working as a hostess at a Hollywood nightclub, Barnes posed nude for the "Pet of the Month" photo layout in the March 1976 issue of Penthouse magazine under the pseudonym Joann Witty. Penthouse later republished the photos under Barnes' real name in 1982 after she gained fame upon joining the cast of Three's Company. Barnes filed suit, which was appealed to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

In 1976, she began studying acting with coach Sal Dano, whose students included Tom Selleck, Robert Hays and Catherine Bach. In 1978, she starred in a TV series, The American Girls, which was canceled after seven weeks. Subsequent parts include the horror film Tintorera, and TV shows such as Starsky and Hutch, Kojak, The Rockford Files, The Love Boat, the 1978 TV version of The Time Machine and the 1979 television film A Vacation In Hell, which has gained a cult following over the years. In 1980, Barnes landed a supporting role in Sunday Lovers, a romantic comedy ensemble featuring Gene Wilder, Roger Moore and Kathleen Quinlan.

In 1981, Barnes was cast as Terri Alden on Three's Company after Suzanne Somers left the series after a contractual dispute with producers, and after Jenilee Harrison served as interim replacement Cindy Snow. The part, which is Barnes' most notable role, brought her instant public recognition. In the 1998 TV program E! True Hollywood Story, Barnes called Three's Company the "three worst years" of her life. Barnes revealed that after shooting a couple of episodes of the show, she felt "uncomfortable" on the set and asked, unsuccessfully, to be released from her contract. She remained friends with her co-stars, particularly Joyce DeWitt. The two, along with fellow castmate Richard Kline, made public appearances together. Barnes was portrayed by actress Anne Ross in the 2003 television movie Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Three's Company.

In 1982, Barnes starred in the Aaron Spelling-produced ABC Movie of the Week The Wild Women of Chastity Gulch with Joan Collins and Donny Osmond.

After Three's Company was cancelled by ABC in 1984, Barnes appeared in the 1989 James Bond film Licence to Kill (1989) as Della Churchill, the underwater sci-fi/action thriller Lords of the Deep (1989), Traxx with Shadoe Stevens, and in NBC's Perry Mason and the Case of the Reckless Romeo (1993).

Her 1990s feature film appearances include the heroine in Stepfather III (1992), the Kevin Smith comedy Mallrats (1995), the Sean Penn drama The Crossing Guard (1995) opposite Jack Nicholson, and the 1999 comedy Mumford. Her 2000s work includes a memorable performance in the Rob Zombie horror film The Devil's Rejects (2005), the supernatural thrillers Thr3e and The Visitation in (2006) and American Cowslip (2009), starring Val Kilmer and Diane Ladd. Priscilla is now starring in the CW show "Jane The Virgin".

• FSWL supporter Trina Parks, an American actress, vocalist, choreographer, principal dancer and dance instructor. Parks is best known for portraying Thumper in the 1971 James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever. Parks is noted for being the first African–American woman to serve as a love interest to James Bond (known as a Bond Girl).

Editor's note:
FSWL friend Cathy St. George will also attend this show as a special guest.
