Honor Blackman, James Bond's Pussy Galore, dies aged 94

From Simon Murphy and Andrew Pulver at The Guardian:

Honor Blackman, the actor best-known for playing Bond girl Pussy Galore, has died aged 94.

The actor, who became a household name in the 1960s as Cathy Gale in The Avengers and enjoyed a career spanning eight decades, died of natural causes unrelated to coronavirus.

Blackman’s family called her an “adored mother and grandmother” who possessed “an extraordinary combination of beauty, brains and physical prowess”.

I think I’ll be giving Goldfinger another watch very soon. Also, I find it fascinating that “died of natural causes unrelated to coronavirus” is a necessary disclaimer. It’s not surprising, but it is interesting to me.
