Dink in GOLDFINGER 1964

I first met the lovely Margaret Nolan at Pinewood Studios in 2008. After that we've bumped into each other at numerous occasions. Most recently in Oslo where FSWL co-hosted an event for the 50th anniversary of Goldfinger in May 2014.

About her work on Goldfinger (1964), Margaret says:

"I quite unexpectedly shot into the limelight with my very first film role in Goldfinger in 1964 when I was only 20 years old. Eon [Productions] had wanted me to be the body for the iconic titles sequence and I agreed if they gave me a part in the film (the role as Dink). An offer of a two year contract to publicise the film followed but I turned this down on the grounds that I would find it difficult to 'live down' such publicity as I wanted to be taken seriously as an actress.

As it transpired, I couldn't 'live it down' anyway, and to this day get regular fan-mail from Bond fans!"
