009 is the code number of a '00 Agent' who appears in the 1983 film Octopussy. He was portrayed by actor and stunt performer Andy Bradford. To date, across the James Bond franchise as a whole, there have been five individuals who have held the number 009.
009 is an unnamed operative of the British Secret Service, who, like all 00 Agents, posses a discretionary 'Licence to Kill' in the field. He is shown at the beginning of the film in East Berlin disguised as a clown and fleeing with a fake Fabergé egg he stole from Octopussy's circus. The theft has not gone unnoticed and he is pursued by knife-throwing twins Mischka and Grischka, who wound him as he attempts to pass through the surrounding forest.
Attempting to escape across a bridge, he is struck by one of the twin's knives and plunges into the river. Assuming him to be dead, the twins break off their pursuit, allowing a fatally wounded 009 to scramble from the riverbank and get to the British ambassador's residence. Smashing through the window, the operative collapses to the floor dead; the egg slipping from his hand and landing at the ambassador's feet. James Bond replaces him, continuing the investigation (Operation Trove) and avenging 009 by killing his murderers.
