Bond girl Tania Mallet has sadly passed away at age 77.
The actress starred in the 1964 James Bond classic Goldfinger and her passing was confirmed by the James Bond team.
“We are very sorry to hear that Tania Mallet who played Tilly Masterson in Goldfinger has passed away. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this sad time,” the film wrote on their Twitter account.
Tania‘s cousin Helen Mirren also spoke out about her death saying, “I was very sad to lose my cousin Tania this week. Tania was my aunt Olga’s daughter and my sister and I grew up with her.”
Her statement to Daily News continued, “She showed her Russian heritage in her very beautiful bone structure and eyes that made her into one of the top models of the early ’60s. However she was never vain, but a kind and generous person who used her model earnings to put her half-brothers through school. She was a great optimist and always looked on life with positivity. The first visit I ever made to a film set was visiting her in a night shoot on the set of Goldfinger, where she joined the exclusive club of Bond Girls…My sister and I will miss her very much.”
Our thoughts are with Tania‘s family and friends during this difficult time.
