Zena Marshall sadly passed away today. She was always a very classy and elegant lady but also a lot of fun and she will be very much missed by ourselves and her colleagues.

Zena Marshall was born in Nairobi, Kenya, and made her film debut in London in the same film Roger Moore made his – Gabriel Pascal’s Caesar And Cleopatra in 1945.

Many film roles ensued, including Miranda, Good Time Girl, The Lost People, Helter Skelter, So Long At The Fair (with Dirk Bogarde), Morning Departure, Three Cases Of Murder, Crosstrap and then, in 1962, played the part of Miss Taro in Dr No opposite Sean Connery – and conspired to send 007 to a cliff-top death, all too soon.

Zena’s subsequent film roles include The Switch and Those Magbnificent Men In Their Flying Machines.

Along with stage work, she has also punctuated her film career with work on classic tv series such as Danger Man and The Invisible Man.

Over forty-years on however, it is for her role in Dr No that she remains best remembered!
