Maryam D'Abo starred in The Living Daylights with Timothy Dalton in 1987 and in 2002 produced the international documentary on the Bond Girl phenomenon entitled Bond Girls Are Forever. She lives in London. John Cork has co-written the bestselling James Bond: The Legacy, a tribute to forty years of Bond films. In his career he has conducted over one hundred and fifty interviews with the creative talents behind the 007 films and produced, wrote and directed thirty documentaries for MGM's releases of the James Bond films on DVD, including biographies of Ian Fleming, Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman.From Publishers Weekly:
Since Ian Fleming wrote Casino Royale in 1953, Bond girls have been quintessential American sex symbols. Sexy, dazzling and self-assured, the character has been ogled by men and lambasted by feminists in all of its incarnations. D'Abo, who played Kira Milovy in the James Bond film The Living Daylights, and Cork (co-author of James Bond: The Legacy) walk readers through over 50 years of Bond girl history in this alluring volume, which celebrates the character as a role model and as a groundbreaking achievement in film. As Cork explains, "women like this had simply never been seen in films before." The authors offer summaries and studies of every Bond film, emphasizing the Bond girl's role in each one, and share quotes from Bond girls such as Ursula Andress, Halle Berry, Honor Blackman and Jane Seymour. Using fantastic photos, analytical discussion and primary source material, the authors show how far the Bond girl has come since the world became enamored with the first iconic image of her rising out of the sea wearing a bikini with a knife strapped on to it.
