I first met the charming and friendly Corinne Clery when I was assisting a few of the James Bond guests at Autographica in Birmingham in October 2012, just over a week before the World premiere of Skyfall (2012) at Royal Albert Hall. Then again in December 2013 at Château Vaux le Vicomte in France where FSWL co-hosted an event with Club James Bond France.

Corinne said she loved meeting Bond fans and it was enjoyable as much for her as it was for us. A stunning looking lady with real French Sauciness and great zest for life.

About Corinne Clery:
Corinne began acting in the late 1960's under the name Corinne Piccoli.

She first came to prominence in the controversial film Story of O (1975) based on a book with the same title, Histoire d'O. She has also worked as a model and once graced the cover of French magazine Lui (holding a huge copy of the book).

Clery is well-known after portraying 'Bond girl' Corinne Dufour in Moonraker (1979) (1979). Another Bond connection is from the film The Humanoid (1979) in which she starred with fellow 'Bond girl', Barbara Bach, along with Richard Kiel (whom she also worked with on Moonraker).

Apart from Moonraker, most of her movies are made in Italian.
