Nadja Regin was a Serbian-born actress who spent much of her career working in the UK. "We are very sorry to learn that Nadja Regin has passed away at the age of 87", the page said.

When it comes to Goldfinger, Regin played femme fatale Bonita in the pre-title sequence, attempting to seduce Bond, so that he can be subdued by an enemy.

Born in Serbia, Regin would go on to build dozens of TV and film credits, mostly in United Kingdom and including roles in such 1950s-'60s series as The Saint, The Invisible Man and The Third Man. Nadja appeared in two Bond films, From Russia with Love [1963] and Goldfinger [1964].

The Bond girl appeared in TV roles which included The Avengers, Danger Man, The Saint and Dixon of Dock Green.

Iran floods death toll reaches 70
Deadly floods in Iran have prompted fresh evacuations of six towns as the country braces itself for more rain on Saturday. The government has told citizens, and especially flood-affected farmers, that all losses will be compensated.

In the 1970s, Regin worked for companies such as Rank Film and horror producers Hammer, selecting film scripts for production. "But once The Queen had a tiny role as a Bond girl [in the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony], I thought, well, if it's good enough for Her Majesty I shouldn't be so embarrassed!" she told 007 Magazine.

"Sadly Nadja Regin who played Kerim Bey's mistress in From Russia With Love and Bonita in Goldfinger has passed away".

In 1980, she co-founded Honeyglen Publishing Ltd and recently published her own novel, The Victims and the Fools, under her full name Nadja Poderegin.
