Vale, Mrs Moneypenny

Oops, it is Ms Moneypenny, isn’t it. My Bad!

Bond: What can I bring you from Amsterdam?

Moneypenny: A diamond… in a ring…

Bond: Would you settle for a tulip?

Moneypenny: Yes.

The actress who starred as Ms Moneypenny in a string of James Bond movies, Lois Maxwell, has died in a Western Australian hospital.

80 years old, Ms Maxwell was born in Canada and acted in a number of Hollywood movies before landing the role of Moneypenny.

She played the character in 14 James Bond movies before moving to Perth where she lived until her death.

A spokeswoman for Fremantle Hospital said Ms Maxwell died late on Saturday night.

  6. Herr G eaGle, you are quite correct – I noticed that mistake the morning after. It is proof I should not post later at night while sipping port.
