My Favourite Bond Girl


Eva Green, the perfect casting for the perfect Bond girl. Sexy, mysterious, strong, damaged, independent, insecure, trustworthy, deceptive. Only a handful of actresses could have pulled it off and Eva Green does it in spades. Number 2 would most definitely be Barbara Bach, followed by Diana Rigg, Ursula Andress, and Honor Blackman.


By actor’s era:

Connery era:
Good girl: Domino
Bad girl: Volpe

Good girl: Tracy

Dalton era:
Good girl: Kara
Bad girl: Lupe(if she counts as a “bad girl”)

Brosnan era:

Craig era:
Good girl: Vesper(although I do find that blond receptionist at the Ocean Club quite fetching)
