Lois Maxwell (1927-2007) was a Canadian actress. She played M's secretary, Miss Moneypenny, in the first fourteen Eon productions' Bond films.

Maxwell was eventually replaced by Caroline Bliss, who portrayed Miss Moneypenny in The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill.

Bond Involvement[]

Director Terence Young, who once had turned Maxwell down, offered her the role of either Miss Moneypenny, or the recurring Bond girlfriend, Sylvia Trench. Maxwell was uncomfortable with a revealing scene the latter had in the screenplay, so she took the role as M's secretary. The Trench character was eliminated after From Russia with Love.

Maxwell would portray a version of herself in the 1967 parody film, O.K. Connery. Maxwell would later state her her decision to join the film angered Sean Connery, to the point that he called her and screamed that she had betrayed him, although Connery would later forgive Maxwell.

Maxwell's likeness was used in the 2006 video game, From Russia with Love, released one year before Maxwell's real life passing. Although Sean Connery returned to the role of James Bond in the game, Maxwell did not return, with Karly Rothenberg providing the voice of the character.
