Lois Maxwell

Maxwell in ''[[The Dark Past]]'' (1948) Lois Ruth Maxwell (born Hooker; 14 February 1927 – 29 September 2007) was a Canadian actress, best known for her portrayal of Miss Moneypenny in all the first fourteen Eon-produced ''James Bond'' films (1962–1985). She was the first actress to play the part. The films in which she played Miss Moneypenny were ''Dr. No'' (1962), ''From Russia with Love'' (1963), ''Goldfinger'' (1964), ''Thunderball'' (1965), ''You Only Live Twice'' (1967), ''On Her Majesty's Secret Service'' (1969), ''Diamonds Are Forever'' (1971), ''Live and Let Die'' (1973), ''The Man with the Golden Gun'' (1974), ''The Spy Who Loved Me'' (1977), ''Moonraker'' (1979), ''For Your Eyes Only'' (1981), ''Octopussy'' (1983), and ''A View to a Kill'' (1985). She did not appear in the 1954 and 1967 adaptations of ''Casino Royale'', nor in the 1983 remake of ''Thunderball'', ''Never Say Never Again'', as the production was not Eon's, though she did, as a similar character, in the spoof ''O.K. Connery''.

She began her film career in the late 1940s, and won the Golden Globe Award for Most Promising Newcomer for her performance in ''That Hagen Girl'' (1947). Following a number of small film roles, Maxwell became dissatisfied and travelled to Italy, where she worked in film from 1951 to 1955. After her marriage, she moved to the United Kingdom, where she appeared in several television productions.

As Maxwell's career declined, she lived in Canada, Switzerland, and the UK. In 2001, she was diagnosed with bowel cancer and moved to Western Australia, where she lived with her son until her death at age 80 in 2007. Provided by Wikipedia
