Film biography

This unnamed girl was seen making love to James Bond in a log cabin located on the top of the French Alps. As the two lie together on a fur rug, Bond receives a telex message via his watch ordering him to report back to MI6. 007 meets the girl's protests with a casual "sorry darling, something came up." As Bond pulls on his clothes a group of four armed men approach the cabin on skis.

Girl: "But, James, I need you."
Bond: "So does England!"
―Bond prepares the leave the cabin.[src]

As soon as Bond leaves, she is revealed to be working with the KGB. Extracting a radio transmitter from a nearby handbag, she informs the leader of the group - KGB agent Sergei Barsov - that Bond has just left. Barsov acknowledges her message, leading to a chase sequence across the alps. The girl is not seen again and her fate is left unrevealed.


  • It is highly likely her novelization name is the same as in the film, seeing as how both were written by the same person.
