Ling was a fictional spy working for MI6 and she was also a character in the James Bond film You Only Live Twice played by Tsai Chin. She is seen only in the pre-credit sequence.

Film biography

Ling appears at the beginning of the film, in bed with Bond, under the sheets, somewhere in Hong Kong. The two argue about the taste of the Chinese being different than all other women. At one point, she leaves Bond in bed and gets up, pressing a button on the wall, which makes the bed immediately close into the wall in an upright position, taking 007 with it. This is the signal for the two armed men enter the room and shoot the bed through the wall, apparently killing 007.

Behind the scenes

Tsai Chin, who played Ling, later appeared as Madam Wu in the 2006 version of Casino Royale.
