DR. NO : Ursula Andress (1962)

Ursula Andress was born in Ostermundigen, Berne, Switzerland, to a Swiss-German mother and a German father. Her father, Rolf Andress, was a German diplomat. He disappeared during World War II. Andress has four sisters and one brother. She is fluent in English, French, Italian, and German.

Andress started her career as an art model in Rome, which led to her first roles in the Italian movie industry.

She became famous as Honey Ryder, a shell diver and James Bond’s object of desire in Dr. No (1962), the first Bond movie.

Ursula Andress’ voice in Dr. No was provided by Nikki van der Zyl while the famous calypso was sung by Diana Coupland.

Ursula Andress has the singular distinction among Bond Girls of having actually appeared in the narrative of a Fleming novel, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, written after Fleming was present during filming of Dr. No. She is pointed out to Bond by Irma Bunt while they are dining at Piz Gloria.

In 1963, she won a Golden Globe for Best Promising Newcomer (Female).
