It also marked the first appearance of a "Bond Girl", actress Eunice Gayson.

'An unbelievable lady who left a lasting impression on everyone she met.

After meeting at the Le Cercle Club casino, Sylvia suggested raising the stakes and her co-star replied: "I admire your courage, Miss..."

Sean Connery then delivers the famous line: 'Bond, James Bond'. She also appeared in From Russia With Love.

In her role as Sylvia Trench, Gayson, who died on 8 June, helped to create one of cinema's most enduring catchphrases. "Trench. Sylvia Trench. I admire your luck, Mr. ...?"

Gayson starred as Sylvia Trench in the first James Bond film "Dr". That part went to Lois Maxwell instead. "We went back on set and he said the name "Bond, James Bond" in a handsome way".

The Duchess of Cambridge and Camilla , Duchess of Cornwall , traveled together in a coach as they led the Whitehall procession. And now, even as the newly-minted Duchess of Sussex , Markle is bending the boundaries with her sartorial choices.

The Bond films saw her lines re-recorded by voiceover artist Nikki van der Zyl and she was meant to be a recurring character but the idea was dropped.

Gayson's Twitter account posted the news, writing that she was "an awesome lady who left a lasting impression on everyone she met". This concept was scrapped by director Guy Hamilton when he took the helm for 1964's Goldfinger. A striking presence, Gayson's voice was nevertheless dubbed over by another actress in both films.

Gayson was born in Surrey, England, and began her acting career in the late 1940s with roles films like It Happened in Soho, Halesapoppin!, Let Them Eat Cake, The Revenge of Frankenstein, Arms and the Man, Miss Robin Hood, To Have and to Hold, and Melody in the Dark.

In 1960 she would be cast in episodes of the 1960 television series of The Avengers and The Saint, which starred future Bond actor Sir Roger Moore.

In 2012 Gayson wrote her autobiography, "The First Lady of Bond" (Signum).
