Who is Martine BesWick?

Who is Martine Beswick? The entertainment and Acting world knows her best known for her roles in two James Bond movies. Did you know Did you know that in the Bond series of films, that Martine was one of three actresses that made reappearances as different Bond girls?

 Biography

Beswick was born on 26 September 1941 in Port Antonio, Jamaica to English parents.
Beswick is best known for her two appearances in the James Bond film series. The role of a Bond Girl, as it has evolved in the films, is typically a high-profile part that sometimes can give a major boost to the career of unestablished actresses. When she auditioned for the first Bond film Dr. No, she was cast in the second film From Russia with Love as the fiery gypsy girl, Zora. She engaged in the famous "catfight" scene with her rival Vida (played by former Miss Israel Aliza Gur). She was incorrectly billed as "Martin Beswick" in the title sequence. Beswick then appeared as the ill-fated Paula Caplan in Thunderball. She had been away from the Caribbean so long that she was required to sunbathe constantly for two weeks before filming, in order to look like a local.
Martine went on to appear in One Million Years B.C. opposite Raquel Welch, with whom she also engaged in a catfight. She then appeared in various Hammer Studio low budget films, most notably Prehistoric Women and the gender-bending Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde. She played Adelita in the well-regarded Spaghetti Western A Bullet for the General in 1967 opposite Klaus Kinski and Gian Maria Volonté. She starred as the Queen of Evil in Oliver Stone's 1974 directorial debut, Seizure, aka "Queen of Evil". In the 1970s, Beswick moved to Hollywood and regularly appeared on both the big screen and small screen. She made numerous guest appearances in TV series including Sledge Hammer!, Fantasy Island, The Fall Guy, Mannix, The Six Million Dollar Man and Falcon Crest. In 1980, she played the lead role in the comedy film The Happy Hooker Goes to Hollywood.

Beswick's career was active well into the 1990s. In recent years, she has mainly participated in film documentaries, providing commentary and relating her experiences on the many films she has appeared in. She owned a removals business in London, but is now semi-retired except for her guest appearances at international Bond conventions.
Contrary to speculation recorded elsewhere, Beswick never married and was not one of the silhouetted dancing girls in the opening credits to Dr. No.
