Actress Eunice Gayson, the first “Bond girl” who played Sylvia Trench in in the James Bond movies, has died, according to a tweet from the James Bond franchise Twitter page. She was 90.
Gayson appeared in the first two movies in the James Bond series: “Dr. No” and “From Russia With Love.”
According to a tweet from Gayson’s official Twitter account, the actress died Friday.
"Dr. No," released in 1962, was the first film that brought the Ian Fleming spy novels to life. Sean Connery starred as James Bond, who was known as British Agent 007.
According to the BBC, Gayson helped steady a nervous Connery so he could deliver his signature phrase -- “Bond. James Bond” -- for the first time.
Meeting 007 over cards at the Le Cercle Club casino, she suggests raising the stakes. Bond replies: "I admire your courage, Miss, er... ?"
"Trench, Sylvia Trench. I admire your luck, Mr... ?"
“Bond. James Bond."
In 2012, Gayson said that Connery “had to say Bond, James Bond, but he came out with other permutations like Sean Bond, James Connery. 'Cut! Cut! Cut!’” the BBC reported.
At the suggestion of director Terence Young, Gayson took Connery for a drink, and he returned to deliver the line perfectly, the BBC reported.
Gayson reprised her role in the second James Bond movie, “From Russia With Love," in 1963.
Gayson appeared in "The Revenge of Frankenstein" in 1958, and also was in television series such as “The Saint” and “The Avengers,” CNN reported.

They’ve been there from the beginning, and now they have matching ink to make their connection in protecting the world, or the Marvel Cinematic Universe, permanent.
Five of the six Avengers took a page out of the “The Lord of the Rings” playbook and got matching tattoos.
Robert Downey Jr. said it was all Scarlett Johansson’s idea.
“She and (Chris) Evans did it in New York. Then their New York guy, Josh Lord, who is amazing, flew out to LA, he did me, did (Jeremy) Renner, and then we just bullied (Chris) Hemsworth into doing it, and he got it,” Downey told Entertainment Weekly.
The only one not to be part of the tattoo group was Mark Ruffalo.
But the there was a sixth person in the tattoo chair -- the artist himself -- who had each of the five Avengers stars make a line on his version of the stylized Avengers symbol.
“Each of us contributed to giving the tattoo artist the sixth tattoo that he designed for us. By the way, he’s got another one on him that Scarlett did, which is beautiful, which is crazy, because the line she drew on him, which was supposed to be a straight line, looked like a lightning bolt. It was a mess,” Downey told Entertainment Weekly.
The “Avengers” cast isn’t the only one to get the same ink after filming was complete. The cast of “The Lord of the Rings” also got matching tattoos more than 10 years ago of the number nine written in elvish.
