The Living Daylights’s Maryam D`abo

Kara Milovy-The Living Daylights) After her role as Kara, Maryam did an Italian film called “Bread Train”, and appeared in the video for a band called “Living In A Box”. The song was also called “Living In A Box” and was a top 10 hit in the U.S. Ironically she played a cello player in the video . She later moved to Hollywood to find more work.

She promptly got the lead role in a science fiction miniseries called “Something Is Out There”. The miniseries was such a ratings hit that it was turned into a weekly series for NBC. The weekly show did not perform as well though and was soon cancelled. She`s gone on to other work, primarily movies on the Sci-Fi and Lifetime Channel.

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’s George Lazenby

(007-On Her Majesty`s Secret Service) George took some time off after doing On Her Majesty`s Secret Service to sail around the world. When he came back to Hollywood, he found his career had stalled. Contrary to what he was told by his people at the time, one turn as Bond did not guarantee him big screen success in other films, and Lazenby was forced to work in low budget, foreign action films or adult dramas such as the “Emmanuelle” film series.

But as the fans have come to embrace OHMSS over the years, Lazenby has seen his star power take an upswing. He was recently cast in the comedy “Gut Feeling”, and made a special guest appearance on NBC-TV`s “The Pretender” as Jarrod`s father.

Never Say Never Again’s Barbara Carrera

(Fatima Blush-Never Say Never Again) After NSNA, Barbara went on to do a variety of film roles, with her most noticeable work being on “DALLAS”. She joined the CBS nightime drama for the 1985-86 season, playing the mysterious Angelica Nero.

Back in the mid to late 1990`s she signed on to play “Patsy” in the American version of “Absolutely Fabulous” which was being produced by Roseanne. Carrie Fisher was to have costarred as Edina. The ABC Network had a development deal with Roseanne but balked at the drug use and heavy drinking that is part of the show. HBO showed some interest but have not picked up the show. It`s status is dead at this point.

Moonraker’s Lois Chiles

(Holly Goodhead-Moonraker) Lois stayed very busy following her turn as Dr. Goodhead in Moonraker. Some of the key projects she`s been involved in include a two year stint on the CBS television show “Dallas” as Holly Harwood. Other film roles included Creepshow 2, Sweet Liberty, Bliss and Speed 2: Cruise Control as well as gracing the cover, for the second time, of Living Fit Magazine in 1995.

She also filmed an uncredited cameo appearance for the 1997 movie `Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery.` In the brief scene, she played the wife of one of Dr. Evil`s henchmen, receiving the news that her husband was killed at work. This is one of several scenes that were filmed, not used in the theatrical release, but included as extras on the DVD release.

Live and Let Die’s Roger Moore

Roger Moore will be back on the big screen in the new thriller THE ENEMY. He costars with Luke Perry from BEVERLY HILLS 90210, as well as Olivia D`abo (THE WONDER YEARS), whose cousin Maryam D`abo, played a Bond Girl in THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS. Actor Tom Conti is along for the ride. The film is an independent production, which means it is not being financed by a major studio. The budget is $6,000,000.00, nearly the size of Roger Moore`s paycheck by the time he retired from the role. Filming begins April 29th in Luxembourg. Moore co-starred in the Jean Claude Van Damme film THE QUEST, as well as hosted a special on The Discovery Channel about spies.

He also had a limited co-starring role in a syndicated action drama called The Dream Team, about a group of ex-spies turned swimwear models. The show starred Jeff Kaake (Viper, Dynasty), actress/supermodel Angie Everhart (Jade, Last Action Hero), Traci Bingham (Baywatch) and former Miss Poland Eva Halina. It was cancelled after less than one season after poor ratings and its financing fell through.

A VIEW TO A KILL was not only his swan song as 007, but for the most part, a retirement from acting. His other 1985 film, THE NAKED FACE, came out later in the year, after A VIEW TO A KILL, and primarily closed the book on Roger`s acting career. That`s not to say that he hasn`t worked since. In 1987 Roger played a good sport and hosted HAPPY ANNIVERSARY 007!, a 25 year retrospective that also helped introduce America to the new James Bond, Timothy Dalton. After taking several years off, and going through a divorce, television and movie appearances started in such campy, lightweight fare as SPICEWORLD (1997).

Roger`s most gratifying and high profile role since James Bond has been to be a spokesman on behalf of UNICEF. Roger came back into the spotlight with his humanitarian work (he picked up where Audrey Hepburn left off after her death).

Live and Let Die’s David Hedison

He`s also done several guest appearances on NBC`s “NIGHT COURT”, where he played a conservative Southern preacher.

Licence To Kill’s Benicio Del Toro

Benicio Del Toro (Dario-License To Kill) Benicio played his first romantic lead role, opposite Alicia Silverstone in Excess Baggage. He had a runaway hit for stardom on his hands with “Traffic”.

Goldfinger’s Anthony Newley

Anthony Newley (songwriter) Newley, known for the stage hit “Stop the World – I Want To Get Off” and the 1967 film version of the children`s classic “Doctor Doolittle,” died Wednesday, April 14, 1999, in his southeast Florida home. He was 67. Newley also cowrote Goldfinger, and sang a demo version that was never used but can be found on the 30th Anniversary CD.

GoldenEye’s Pierce Brosnan

With three 007 films under his belt, (almost four now) Pierce Brosnan is not content to just sit on his laurels as Bond. In between Bond flicks, he`s made hit films such as “Dante`s Peak” and “The Thomas Crowne Affair”, and misses, such as “Mars Attacks!” and “The Nephew”.

He`s currently developing projects such as “Burnt Sienna” and “Tailor of Panama”. “Tailor“ centers on a British intelligence operative in Latin America who manipulates a crisis that leads the U.S. to invade Panama and nullify the Panama Treaty. In “Sienna” Brosnan will play a former Marine pilot who leaves the service to become an artist in Mexico. When he turns down a commission to paint the portrait of the wife of a top arms dealer, the painter finds his quiet life turned upside down by the scorned dealer. He soon joins a CIA mission to bring down the villain.

Brosnan will marry longtime love and mother of son Dylan, Keely Shaye-Smith. No date has been set.

GoldenEye’s Martin Campbell

NEW YORK (Variety) – Director Martin Campbell, last in theaters with the mountaineering thriller “Vertical Limit,“ is on track to make a sequel to his hit film “The Mask of Zorro.“

The Columbia Pictures project will likely mark his first film under a new first-look directing deal with the studio`s Sony Pictures Entertainment parent.

It is now being written by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, scribes of the 1998 original which grossed more than $250 million worldwide and launched Catherine Zeta-Jones. It is Campbell`s intention to bring her back along with Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins.

For the present, though, Campbell is in talks to direct an adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks bestseller “The Notebook.“ While a few deal points are still being worked out, he expects to start work as soon as threatened writers` and actors` strikes this summer are settled or averted.

The project is a stark contrast with his recent trio of hits “Goldeneye,“ “The Mask of Zorro“ and “Vertical Limit, “ each of which grossed north of $200 million worldwide and made him one of the most bankable helmers in town.

The Sparks novel tells the story of a man who makes daily visits to a woman in a nursing home to read her stories from a notebook. It becomes clear that she has Alzheimer`s Disease, and that he is reading their love story, which centers around a young woman and two men vying for her affections. It`s unclear which man she has chosen, though he`s obviously the one reading the tale.

The bestseller has been a magnet for A-list directors, with Steven Spielberg and James Sheridan nearly going forward. For Campbell, it is a welcome change from his logistically challenged recent efforts.

“I read the book and loved it four years ago, but Steven Spielberg was going to do with Tom Cruise, and I moved on,“ said Campbell. “After finishing the recent films, I want to do a smaller character-driven piece, one that harkens back to my BBC roots. It`s a love story with very few characters involved and not an explosion in sight, which I find very appealing.“

Campbell and producer Mark Johnson will be working on the script with screenwriter Jeremy Leven, who wrote the most recent draft.

The “Zorro“ sequel will follow “The Notebook.“ And Campbell hopes to follow that by directing “Travel Agent,“ also for Columbia.

“It`s a time travel story, but unlike most of them, it`s not a gimmick where you`re taken to medieval times or the future,“ Campbell said.

One project which Campbell won`t revisit is James Bond, even though the 1995 film he directed, “Goldeneye,“ restored the luster of the flagging franchise, grossing over $350 million worldwide and cementing Pierce Brosnan as a viable 007.

“It was great fun, but I just don`t know how many more control rooms I could blow up,“ said Campbell.
