Moneypenny in GOLDENEYE, TOMORROW NEVER DIES, THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH and DIE ANOTHER DAY

Before coming to London in November 2002 I had never met Samantha Bond in person. Flying in from Sweden, I noticed she had the female lead in the theatre play of ‘Macbeth’ at Albery Theatre (now known as Noel Coward Theatre) near Leicester Square in London. So, I bought a ticket in order to 'evaluate' her like she once did with 007.

Her performance was great and seemlingly very enjoyable. I discovered her talent as an actress and realised she will be very successful in the future.

After the play ended a bunch of guys waited for her at the back of the theatre and when she came out we got a little chat and everyone was happy. When I told her I attended the premiere of Die Another Day (2002) the night before (like her) she asked about the film and I tried my best to get her a good answer.

I pointed out I really wouldn’t have disliked that the dream Miss Moneypenny has at the end of DAD being real.

Actresses who have played Moneypenny in the 007 film series:
