‘Goldfinger’ Model & Bond Girl Margaret Nolan Dead at 76
Margaret Nolan – who was the iconic gold-plated girl depicted in the opening sequence for ‘Goldfinger’ – has died.
The legendary British artist and glamor model passed away last week, according to her son Oscar Deeks. The news wasn’t announced until Sunday, however, when director Edgar Wright – who had played Margaret in a film on his set to be released next year – posted on Twitter.
He writes: “It is my sad duty to report that the actress and artist, the magnificent Margaret Nolan has passed away. She was in the middle of the Venn diagram of all that was cool in the ’60s; after performing with the Beatles, being beyond iconic in Bond and being a part of the cast of Carry On. Edgar then attached several photos of Margaret from her various concerts and detailed various on-camera projects she had been involved in over her six-decade career.
Margaret led a life rich enough in history … besides being the role model featured in the opening of “ Goldfinger ” – not to mention all the spinoffs of the film that followed – she was actually in the film as one of the Bond Girls, albeit in a smaller (but still memorable) capacity.
She played Bond’s poolside masseuse Dink, who rubbed him before Sean Connery introduced her to his coworker, then quickly pushes her away with a nice jerk on the cum … saying it was time for “talking about a man”. Pretty sexist when you look back, but that’s what it is.
Margaret also starred in another ’60s mega movie – The Beatles “ A Hard Day’s Night’ ‘… which they made after their hit song of the same name. She played an anonymous woman in a casino, and while her time in front of the camera was relatively brief … it was also eternal.
She has a long list of acting actors … having appeared on shows like ‘Crossroads’,’ Secret Agent ‘,’ 199 Park Lane ‘,’ Hugh and I, ‘Take a Pair of Private Eyes’,’ The Newcomers, ‘The World of Beachcomber’, ‘Brian Rix Presents …’, ‘Budgie’, ‘Fox’, ‘Crown Court’, ‘Q6’ and countless other. Margaret also starred in several films throughout her career, including recurring and alternating roles in the 1970s ‘Carry On’ comedy franchise.
Her modeling career was second to none and she even tried her hand as a visual artist – to which she was sometimes criticized for her photo montages and exhibitions. Nonetheless, the woman was a dynamo in showbiz and entertainment.
Margaret is survived by her two sons. She was 76 years old.
