12 FEBRUARY 2017
BIRTHDAY OF SWEDISH BOND GIRL MAUD ADAMS

Birthday of Swedish super-model and actress Maud Adams, two times a "James Bond Girl" after roles in The Man with the Golden (1974) and Octopussy (1983) (1983). Maud, born just below the Arctic Circle, has always been a loyal supporter of FSWL for which we love her dearly.

"I hope From Sweden With Love continues the excellent support of all things in the world of Bond for many years to come." – Maud Adams

With this page, FSWL would like to extend our best wishes to Maud.

"Kramar och stort grattis på din födelsedag Maud, FSWL älskar dig och Sverige mycket stolta över ditt bidrag på den internationella arenan."

Octopussy director John Glen on Maud: "Unknown to most people, Maud actually appeared in three Bond movies. While we were filming on Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco she visited the set and walked through the background of a scene. Maud had the most amazing bone structure and was a photographer’s delight. She was a very popular choice with Roger."

About Maud Adams:
Maud Adams (born in Luleå 1945) started her career as a model but turned to acting in 1970 with The Boys In The Band in which – appropriately – she played a model.

A few years later, she was cast as Andrea Anders in The Man with the Golden Gun, the first of her Bond films. Her character was both “vulnerable” and a “victim” at the hands of her lover, Francisco Scaramanga, the titular villain played by legendary actor Sir Christopher Lee.

Further features followed, such as Rollerball (the 1975 original), The Hostage Tower (1980) (along with Britt Ekland), Playing For Time (1980) and episodic tv such as Kojak (1977) and Emerald Point NAS (1983-1984) before producer Albert R. Broccoli offered her the title role in the James Bond film Octopussy.

Whilst a couple of other actresses had made a second appearance in a James Bond film (aside from regular Miss Moneypenny) it was quite something for a supporting actress in one film to return as one of the leads in a future 007 adventure.

Both director John Glen and Bond actor Roger Moore, were unanimous in their praise for the casting decision in Octopussy.

Post-Bond, Maud continued acting in both large screen and small screen projects: Jane and the Lost City (1987), The Women’s Club (1987), Hell Hunters (1986), Ringer (1996), Perry Mason (1993) as well as appearing in many episodes of the Swedish television series Radioskugga (1995-1997) and Vita Lögner (1998). In 1994 she hosted Café Luleå – a Swedish talk show series.

In 2006, Maud appeared on Swedish TV in SVT's portrait series, Stjärnorna på slottet. (Britt Ekland appeared in the same series a year later.)

Maud is a brilliant linguist speaking Swedish, French, German, Italian and English.

She lives in Los Angeles with her husband Charles Rubin, but often returns to her native Sweden. She is ambassador for Norrbotten, the Northern Province where Luleå is situated.

Maud remains a firm favourite with Bond fans and enjoys travelling to conventions and autograph shows. One question often asked of her is whether she appeared in A View to a Kill (1985), a story mentioned in John Glen's autobiography. Whilst it is true that Maud visited the set of the film in San Francisco you cannot see her in the film. Many people insist she is on one of the trams in the film, but even studying frame-by-frame on DVDs it is impossible to confirm her being there.

In 2013, Maud appeared in the Swedish version of ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’

Editor's note:
Maud wrote the foreword for Titan Books' comic book edition of Octopussy in 2004 and the afterword to Mark O'Connell's excellent book Catching Bullets: Memoirs of a Bond Fan in 2012. She has also agreed to write the foreword to Anders Frejdh's upcoming book on Bond, From Sweden with Love.

DECEMBER 2014
INTERVIEWS WITH BRITT EKLAND & MAUD ADAMS

Swedish Bond girls Mary Goodnight (Britt Ekland) and Andrea Anders (Maud Adams) from The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) did a Q&A for the official James Bond website in conjunction to the film's 40th anniversary in December 2014.

Actress Britt Ekland answers her questions:

What are your fondest memories of THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN?
[Britt Ekland:] There are so many but just being in Cubby Broccoli's office and being told the part of Mary Goodnight was mine is forever etched in my memory. Flying with my children to Bangkok, filming in such an exotic place was very special. Meeting and becoming friends with Maud Adams and always having a great time together and working with Roger, who was the most non star-like actor I'd ever worked with. None of that staying in the trailer and only coming on set for the scene, he was always warm and jokey with everyone and had a very different sense of humor.

How much fun was it working with Roger Moore? What was the best part about filming with him?
[Britt Ekland:] The best part of working with Roger was that he made you feel good about yourself and confident and that is a quality not a lot of actors have. It's very scary to come on set and work with a famous star and even though I had co-starred in several American and English movies, I still felt very insecure! Roger did like to joke around and used to tease me and Maud, calling us Mud and Bert! Roger is a very charming man and it was ultimately one of the best movies I ever worked on, a very enjoyable time in my life.

What scene was the most physically demanding for you?
[Britt Ekland:] Any scene where you wear a bikini is demanding but I think the scenes where Roger and I run from the explosions were difficult because of timing and of course if you watch the film you'll see me, trying to throw myself on the ground as my bottom was too close to the explosive and Roger yanking me up and just kept going. Also running in high heel shoes, well wedges, is not easy.

What was your favourite location to shoot for the film and why?
[Britt Ekland:] I liked Bangkok but it was very hot and humid and very bad air quality, still is, I went back a couple of years ago and nothing had changed! Phuket was incredible, no hotels or tourists just miles and miles of empty white beaches. I enjoyed Hong Kong very much and used to spend my free time wandering around looking in antique shops.

Actress Maud Adams answers her questions:

Which other “Bond girl” would you have wanted to play?
[Maud Adams:] I never thought about that but, I think the franchise has done a great job in making sure the “Bond girls” are strong characters and contemporary. I have really enjoyed Judi Dench and will miss her participation. Not a“Bond girl” role but that would have been fun to play.

Knowing the impact that it had had on your life by becoming a Bond Girl, did you hesitate in accepting the role of Octopussy, because of all the media furore that comes with each film?
[Maud Adams:] I never hesitated. It was such a treat to be able to once again work with Roger Moore, the producer Cubby Broccoli and the crew I had come to like so much. Being offered the title role of Octopussy also was a real honour.

Which Bond film was most fun?
[Maud Adams:] I enjoyed them both, to a large degree because I was lucky to have Roger Moore as “my" Bond. Britt Ekland also became a good friend during GOLDEN GUN and we spent a lot of our free time together doing “girlie” things like shopping and gossiping.

What was it like working with Roger Moore?
[Maud Adams:] He was always very supportive, a real team player and kept everybody in good spirits during the filming.

How did your expectations compare with your experience?
[Maud Adams:] I was just trying to focus on doing my job and hoped for the best as I really didn’t understand just how big Bond was in the beginning. It was a bit daunting at first, when I realised what I had gotten involved with and also to get so much personal attention. Although I had made three feature length movies prior and you always hope for success, I had never worked on a movie where there was so much expectation, before we’d even shot one frame. Also, I never expected “Bond” to become such a long running franchise and that my participation would have such a lasting effect on my professional life. Kudos to Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, who deserve a lot of credit for keeping Bond relevant, meeting and often exceeding, the continued high expectations every time a new film is released.

How was it acting alongside Christopher Lee?
[Maud Adams:] He was a real gentleman during the filming and extremely professional coupled with a very dry sense of humour. I really didn’t know that much about him other than his Dracula interpretation at first but, I’m so grateful to have met and had the pleasure to have worked with this talented and wonderful man.

If you had the chance to do the roles again, would there be anything you would do differently?
[Maud Adams:] Gosh, I know I would have played both roles differently now that I have much more experience and confidence as an actor.

MAUD ADAMS

Born (year): 1945
Professional: Actress, Model and TV hostess
Language(s): American English, French, German, Italian and Swedish
Website: None

About Maud Adams:
Maud Adams started her career as a model but turned to acting in 1970 with The Boys In The Band in which – appropriately – she played a model.

A few years later, she was cast as Andrea Anders in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), the first of her Bond films. Her character was both “vulnerable” and a “victim” at the hands of her lover, Francisco Scaramanga, the titular villain played by legendary actor Sir Christopher Lee.

Other films followed until producer Albert R. Broccoli offered her the title role in the James Bond film Octopussy (1983) (1983).

Whilst a couple of other actresses had made a second appearance in a James Bond film (aside from regular Miss Moneypenny) it was quite something for a supporting actress in one film to return as one of the leads in a future 007 adventure.

Both director John Glen, and Bond actor Roger Moore, were unanimous in their praise for the casting decision in Octopussy.

Post-Bond, Maud continued acting in both large screen and small screen projects: Jane and the Lost City (1987), The Women’s Club (1987), Hell Hunters (1986), Ringer (1996), Perry Mason (1993) as well as appearing in many episodes of the Swedish television series Radioskugga (1995-1997) and Vita Lögner (1998). In 1994 she hosted Café Luleå – a Swedish talk show series.

In 2006, Maud appeared on Swedish TV in SVT's portrait series, Stjärnorna på slottet. (Britt Ekland appeared in the same series a year later.)

One question often asked of her is whether she appeared in A View to a Kill (1985), a story John Glen confirmed as being fact in his autobiography. Whilst it is true that Maud visited the set of the film in San Francisco, she did not (knowingly) make a cameo in the film. Many people insist she is on one of the trams in the film, but even studying frame-by-frame on DVDs it is impossible to confirm her being there.

In 2013, Maud Adams appeared in the Swedish version of ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’

Maud lives in Los Angeles since many years with her husband Charles Rubin, but often returns to her native Sweden. She is ambassador for Norrbotten, the Northern Province where Luleå is situated.

MAUD ADAMS (SWEDISH ACTRESS)

Andrea Anders in THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN 1974 and Octopussy in OCTOPUSSY 1983

Maud Adams is very special to me as she is Swedish and Sweden are very proud of her and the contribution she has given to the Bond film franchise.

It is always a pleasure to see Maud. She is now a professional business woman but still finds time to see her fans at conventions and collector shows.

Each time is a renewed pleasure as she is always very kind and friendly. Absolutely gorgeous and still has the looks to be a Bond girl yet another time.

For Swedish visitors it is worth noting the popularity of Swedish Bond women in England. They are always been among the most popular Bond guests at the UK collector shows that I have attended and I guess that is because they are not English and considered very exotic except being very beautiful of course! Not surprisingly, the organisers usually like them as well.

James Bond : From Sweden with Love

From Sweden with Love (FSWL) is entirely dedicated to Agent 007 and his creator Ian Fleming. We have been studying the phenomenon for more than 30 years. FSWL started as a personal examination of the fictive agent but has developed and progressed now featuring exclusive interviews, Bond news in Swedish media, book and film reviews, meetings with Bond stars who have appeared in or worked on the James Bond films, database with our 007 collection featuring thousands of items, articles and travel stories from the world of 007, competitions, webshop featuring Swedish film posters, the films on Blu-ray and the soundtracks on CD.

Sweden have been represented by (00)7 Bond girls - Britt Ekland, Maud Adams, Anne Lonnberg (Anne's father is Swedish), Mary Stavin, Kristina Wayborn, Izabella Scorupco and Eva Green (Eva's father is Swedish).
Dolph Lundgren and stuntman Lars Lundgren have also appeared in the Bond film series. Two other Swedish actors , Ola Rapace and Jens Hultén, appeared in the 23rd adventure, Skyfall (2012) (2012), with Per Hallberg supervising the sound which gave him an Oscar®.

FSWL's vision is to focus on the phenomenon from a Swedish point of view. We have a serious passion (not interested in rumours) for the fictional hero created by Ian Fleming in 1952 when he wrote the first James Bond novel - Casino Royale.

FSWL is also a tribute to producers Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli for adapting Ian Fleming's novels into films.
