James Bond 'cinema's most dangerous lover'

James Bond 'cinema's most dangerous lover'

James Bond is the most lethal lover in cinema history, according to The Guardian.

Out of the 51 women the secret agent has bedded over 22 films, 16 have ended up dead. The first death was Jill Masterson (Shirley Eaton) in Sean Connery's 1964 outing Goldfinger. After being seduced by 007, the character was covered in gold paint and died from skin suffocation.

The last fatality in the franchise paid homage to Goldfinger, with Quantum Of Solace's Strawberry Fields (Gemma Arterton) drowning in crude oil.

The Roger Moore Bond adventures saw more than a quarter of the women he bedded end up dead, while his predecessor George Lazenby lost his wife at the hands of villain Ernst Blofeld.

None of Timothy Dalton's conquests died during his two-film tenure, but Pierce Brosnan was responsible for the death of three of his lovers.

Daniel Craig is the most dangerous 007, having seen three of his Bond girls - Casino Royale's Solange and Vesper Lynd, and Quantum Of Solace's Fields - meet a grim demise.
