Maryam d'Abo Iskallt uppdrag
Birthday for Maryam d'Abo who portrayed Bond girl Kara Milovy in the 15th James Bond film, The Living Daylights (1987) starring Timothy Dalton in his first film as Ian Fleming's 007.

With this dedicated page, we would like to send our personal wishes to Ms. d'Abo on her birthday.

"Dear Maryam, happy birthday and much love from Sweden."

About Maryam d'Abo:
Maryam d'Abo was born in London to a Dutch father and Georgian mother, she grew up in Paris and Geneva. She is cousin of singer Mike d’Abo and second cousin of his daughter, Olivia d’Abo.

Maryam entered the film business in 1983 when she appeared in Xtro, Maryam swiftly clocked up credits in productions including Master Of The Game (1984), Until September (1984), White Nights (1985) and Out Of Africa (1985) before becoming involved in the screen tests of a new James Bond for The Living Daylights – recreating a scene from the film From Russia With Love (1963) with would-be 007s.

Both producers and the director (John Glen) were impressed and they decided Maryam was perfect casting for the role of Kara Milovy.

Since her time as a Bond girl she has worked continuously in film and television including Leon the Pig Farmer (1992), Solitaire For Two, The Browning Version (1994), Doctor Zhivago (2002) and Helen of Troy (2003). She also guest starred in episodes of Murder She Wrote (1992), Tales From The Crypt (1993) and Space Precinct (1995).

In 2002 she wrote a book (along with John Cork) and produced a documentary called Bond Girls Are Forever, featuring interviews with the most famous and most beautiful Bond girls from Ursula Andress to Halle Berry.
