Helga Brandt was played by Karin Dor as a minor villain and a henchwoman of Ernst Stavro Blofeld in the James Bond film You Only Live Twice. She is Number 11 in the SPECTRE hierarchy and poses as a secretary to Mr. Osato, a SPECTRE operative posing as an industrialist.
Bond first met Brandt (whose first name is never mentioned in the film) when he comes to meet Osato. She and Osato arrive via helicopter. After Bond leaves, Osato orders Brandt to kill him. Later at Kobe dock, Bond is captured and taken to see her. Knowing that she will be killing Bond later, she allows herself to be seduced by him, pretending to defect to his side. While traveling in a Cessna, however, she parachutes out, leaving Bond to try and control the diving plane, narrowly escaping before the plane blows up after an emergency landing. Displeased with her failures, Blofeld feeds her to his school of piranha.
Behind the scenes
According to Karin Dor, who is a natural brunette, the producers wanted a "blonde German girl (to play Helga Brandt) but they ended up with me". As a compromise, they dyed Dor's hair red for the movie, turning Brandt into something of a Fiona Volpe clone.
