Bond Girl: Linda

Linda is a minor Bond Girl who appears in the pre-title sequence of the 1987 James Bond film The Living Daylights. Belle Avery portrays her.


Whilst moored off the coast of Gibraltar, Linda phones her friend, Margot, voicing her frustration with life on the Mediterranean, noting the proliferation of “playboys and tennis pros” and hoping she finds a “real man.” Mere seconds later, James Bond parachutes onto her yacht and borrows the telephone to contact ‘Exercise Control’ (following sabotaging a training exercise on the island). The spy initially informs control that he will report in an hour. However, he is swayed to increase it to two hours after being invited to enjoy a glass of champagne with the woman.
