Maud Adams (ii)


  1. Elga Andersen, Le Mans, 1970.   One look was more than enough for Steve McQueen. The Swedish beauty was too tall. Good enough for three Roger Moore-007 films, The Man With The Golden Gun, Octopussy and as an extra in A View To A Kill.
  2. Lesley-Anne Down, The Pink Panther Strikes Again, 1976.   Olga was recast after a few days because director Blake Edwards cast the wrong girl. His wife, Julie Andrews, commented that Down did not look like Nicola Paget from their  favourite  UK TV  series, Upstairs, Downstairs, 1971.  “Oh, that’s  just make-up, lighting,” said Edwards. No. Wrong girl. Paget was not free. Enter: the first  triple Bond babe.
