Paris was a beautiful brunette who was a once a lover of James Bond's. He left behind, however, because his job was too dangerous for a real relationship. She later married TV and news magnate Elliot Carver, who led a conspiracy to concoct a war between England and China; a war that his news divisions would have exclusive coverage of, sending his ratings into the stratosphere. MI6 sent Bond to investigate, and he eventually crossed paths with Paris. M had instructed him to seduce her and learn some of Carver's plans.
When he saw her again, her beauty was not lost on him, but she was not exactly pleased to see him and slaps him the moment she turned to him, shocking the guests. They talk about 007's job and asked if he 'still sleeps with a gun under your pillow?'. When he came up in conversation with her husband, Paris lied that he had dated her roommate and that she barely knew him.
Suspecting that the man she had married was up to something nefarious (and out of a need to be with Bond again) Paris went to him after her husband's henchmen tried to kill him. At first he tried to send her away, but they were too strongly drawn to each other. They made love, and Bond confessed that he had left her because she had gotten too close. Paris gave Bond the information he needed, but Carver, who had been spying on his wife, sent his personal assassin, Dr. Kaufman, to her room hours later to kill her. Kaufman was assigned to make the deaths look like a murder-suicide- Bond killing Paris and then himself-, but Bond was able to turn the tables on Kaufman and kill him.
Paris' murder ignited in Bond the desire for revenge, shaking his usual professional detachment and clouding his judgement. His eventual partnership with Chinese Intelligence agent Wai Lin brought him back to his senses, however, as well as provided him another lover.
The novelisation of the film reveals that Paris was a model who met Bond at a party and dated him for a few months before she found him in bed with a friend of hers, after which she ran off, eventually meeting Carver.
