More about the Bond guests:
Barbara Bouchet is a German-American actress who has appeared in more than 80 films and television episodes. Barbara has also founded a production company, that has produced fitness videos and books, as well as owning a fitness studio. Among her many roles is portraying the iconic Miss Moneypenny in the 1967 version of Casino Royale opposite David Niven as 007.

Britt Ekland is a Swedish actress and singer, and a long-time resident of the United Kingdom. She is best known for her roles as a Bond girl in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), and in the British cult horror film The Wicker Man, as well as her marriage to actor Peter Sellers, and her high-profile social life.

Carole Ashby - English actress best known for playing the part of Louise, a member of the communist resistance, in 'Allo 'Allo! (1988-1992). Previously, she appeared alongside Roger Moore in two James Bond films, Octopussy (1983) and A View to a Kill. Even lthough her appearances were brief they assured her Bond Girl status. She also played the role of Linda Boyland in the 1981 hit movie Chariots of Fire. Carole was also a hostess on the final (1983) season of Anglia Television's game show Sale Of The Century.

Gloria Hendry is an American actress. Hendry began her acting career in the 1968 Sidney Poitier film For Love of Ivy. She is of Seminole, Chinese, Creek Indian, Irish and African descent.
She is perhaps best known for portraying the Bond girl, Rosie Carver in the James Bond film Live and Let Die (1973). In that film, she became the first African American woman to become romantically involved with 007. She is not, however, the first African-American Bond girl; that title went to Trina Parks. When the film was first released in South Africa, her love scenes with Roger Moore were cut out because it was prohibited by the Apartheid government.

Kristina Wayborn - a Swedish-born actress who has worked mostly in the United Kingdom and in the United States. Wayborn portrayed screen legend Greta Garbo in television movie The Silent Lovers (1980) which brought her to the attention of the producers of the James Bond films who cast her for Octopussy.

Lana Wood is the younger sister of actress, Natalie Wood. Her first major role was at age 9 in the John Wayne western The Searchers. She was a regular on the soap opera Peyton Place. She is best known for her role as Plenty O'Toole in the 1971 James Bond film Diamonds are Forever.

Luciana Paluzzi - her very first film was an uncredited walk-on part in Three Coins in the Fountain (1954). She went on to appear in many movies, most of which were made in her native Italy. Even though Paluzzi had an extensive resume before and after her brush with Bond, audiences worldwide still remember her best as the fiery, red-haired villainess she played in Thunderball (1965) (1965). Paluzzi originally auditioned for the part of the lead Bond girl, "Domino" Palazzi. The producers eventually cast a former Miss France, Claudine Auger, because they wanted to launch a new girl with each new Bond movie and Luciana was already well established with movie audiences in Europe. Initially crestfallen when informed she did not get the part, Paluzzi rejoiced when told her consolatory prize was the part of the "bad girl", Fiona Volpe, which she said was "more fun to play".

Lynn-Holly Johnson - an American professional ice skater and actress. After achieving some success as a figure skater in the mid 1970s, she began an acting career, including a Golden Globe-nominated role in 1978's Ice Castles. In 1981, Johnson portrayed Bibi Dahl in the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only. In that movie she played yet another ice-skater who unsuccessfully yet comically attempts to seduce an unwilling and much older James Bond (played by Roger Moore).

Mary Stavin is a Swedish actress, model, and a former Miss World (1977). Born in Örebro, Sweden. She returned to judge the Miss World contest in 1981 and 2010. and hosted it in 1986.
Amongst her most prominent acting roles are parts in two James Bond films. In Octopussy she plays an Octopussy girl and in A View to a Kill she plays agent Kimberley Jones. In addition to acting, Stavin released the exercise album Shape Up and Dance with George Best. She had a minor role as the character Tanya in the 1986 horror movie House which starred William Katt. Stavin plays the Icelandic businesswoman, Heba, in "Twin Peaks" (Season 1, Ep. 6). She also appeared in two music videos for Adam Ant. These were Ant Rap (1981) and Strip (1983).

Tanya Roberts is an American actress best known for her role in as Julie Rogers on the fifth and final season of Charlie's Angels (1980-1981) and as Midge Pinciotti on That '70s Show (1998-2001). She has also headlined films such as The Beastmaster, A View to a Kill, and Sheena. Roberts was groomed as a Hollywood sex symbol during the early 1980s.

Trina Parks - an American actress, vocalist, choreographer, principal dancer and dance instructor. She is most famous for portraying Thumper in 1971's Diamonds are Forever.

Caroline 'Tula' Cossey was born with male genitalia but went on to become a beautiful woman with a successful modeling career. Tula was cast in the 1981 James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only. She is proud to be a part of the legacy of James Bond films.
Her autobiography My Story is not just the true account of Tula's battle for the body she needed to survive and her struggle for the legal rights she deserved as a woman. It is above all an inspirational exemplification of the triumph of the human spirit over seemingly insurmountable adversity and suffering. Later in 2016 Tula will be featured in an HBO documentary.
