Bond Girls: Through The Years

You’d be hard-pressed to find a series as iconic and as long running as the James Bond movies have been to film. The secret agent, also known by his alias and codename 007, has been entertaining audiences since 1962, when the first Bond film ‘Dr. No’ hit the big screen. While that was first movie to feature Bond (played by Sean Connery), the character started entertaining audiences nearly a decade earlier when created by author Ian Fleming for the book ‘Casino Royale.’


While action, intrigue and espionage are all key aspects of any James Bond movie, there’s also always been aspect of sex appeal, especially as 007 is always good-looking and charming. Through the years, there have been tons of beautiful women that have been both of help and romantic interest to the secret agent, and they’ve earned the title of Bond girls. Many of the women, such as Ursula Andress (who played Honey Ryder, pictured here), have become just as iconic as the actors who played Bond himself. Scroll through our gallery to check out photos of Bond girls from throughout the film’s franchise.
