Ursula Andress with Ciaran Brown
Ursula was not allowing photographs at this event but she made an exception for me, and Graham Rye took this photograph of us.  This was the first time I had met Graham, who publishes the 007 Magazine.  There is a link below to their website, and everyone who is interested in James Bond should visit it.
I now have two photographs, two Jeff Marshall lithos and also my Bond Girls book signed by Ursula .

One of my most memorable 'Bond moments' was the time I met Ursula Andress at Autographica in London, in October 2005. I had dressed in my tuxedo to look like 007 and she asked me why I was looking so smart. When I said that it was because I was meeting her, she told me how pleased that made her feel!

Ursula Andress
Ursula Andress was born of German parents in Ostermundigen in the Swiss canton of Bern on March 19, 1936. Blessed with stunning good looks, she started her film career with small roles in several Italian farces in 1955.  With the help of Marlon Brando, she later signed a contract with Columbia Pictures, and moved to America.

In 1962, Ursula Andress became the very first 'Bond Girl' when she appeared as Honey Ryder in Dr No (1962), the first film version of an Ian Fleming 'James Bond' espionage no

novel. She won a Golden Globe award for this in 1964.  In Dr No, Ursula's accent was thought to be too strong so her speech was dubbed by Monica Van Der Syl, and her singing by Diana Coupland. The moment when she comes out of the sea carrying a large shell is one of the most famous scenes in the history of film.
Following this success, Ursula co-starred with the king of rock 'n' roll Elvis Presley in Fun in Acapulco (1963); with Frank Sinatra in 4 for Texas (1963); with Peter Sellers in What's New Pussycat (1965) and opposite Italian film star Marcello Mastroianni in the Ita

Italian-style 'pop-art' film The 10th Victim (1965).  She also appeared again with Sellers in the spoof Bond film  Casino Royale (1967) playing the occasional spy Vesper Lynd.
Ursula made many more films in the US and Europe until the mid-70s, including La Decima Vittima (1965), in which she wears a famously ballistic bra; the Hammer fantasy film  She (1965); the western Red Sun (1971) with Charles Bronson and
