Honor Blackman 1925 – 2020

Honor Blackman, the English actor best known for portraying Pussy Galore in the 1964 James Bond classic Goldfinger, has died. She was 94 years old. She became a TV star in the early 1960s after landing the lead role of Cathy Gale in the spy series The Avengers. It was that very role that led her to Goldfinger, the third James Bond movie in which she played tough, judo-fighting pilot Pussy Galore opposite Sean Connery. “Tongue in cheek, isn’t it?” Blackman once said good-humoredly of the character’s name. “If you’re so po-faced that you had to take that seriously, well, bad luck.” Variety
