To continue our series of the ladies that make the James Bond franchise so unique, we are taking a look at Claudine Auger.

The French actress played Dominique Derval or Domino in the fourth Bond film, Thunderball, which starred Sean Connery.

We know – a great start!

Although with all Bond films there is more to the story, here’s the beginning – Bond meets Domino in Nassau, Bahamas, and helps free her foot when it gets stuck in some coral on the ocean floor.

Then of course, she must thank him…

For those who haven’t seen the movie, we are certain we’ve offered up a good teaser.

Although, in case you need a little more encouragement to see the movie or re-watch it, let’s get to some images.

Connery and Claudine…
