‘Carry On’ star and Bond girl Margaret Nolan has passed away at the age of 76.
The iconic artist and model’s death was announced by her son, Oscar Deeks, who confirmed that the Goldfinger actress died on October 5.
Nolan was well-known for her appearance in the 1964 Bond movie in which she starred alongside Sean Connery. Besides her role in the 007 classic, the actress was also renowned for her role in a series of other movies including A Hard Day’s Night and the Carry On franchise.
Paying a tribute to the 76-year-old star was also director Edgar Wright who took to Twitter to send condolences to her family and express his gratitude for being able to work with iconic actress.
“It’s my sad duty to report that actress and artist, the magnificent Margaret Nolan has passed away,” Wright wrote.
“She was the middle of Venn diagram of everything cool in the ‘60s, having appeared with The Beatles, been beyond iconic in Bond and been part of the Carry On cast too.
“She was the gold-painted model in the iconic Goldfinger title sequence and poster (she also played Dink in the movie), she appeared in the classic A Hard Day’s Night, Carry On Girls, No Sex Please We’re British & many others, frequently sending up her own glamourpuss image.
“I worked with her last year as she plays a small role in Last Night In Soho. She was so funny, sharp and, as you might imagine, full of the most amazing stories. I’m so glad I got to know her. My heart goes out to her family and all that loved her. She will be much missed.”
May she rest in peace.
