Film biography

Caroline was sent to the south of France by the new M to psychologically evaluate Bond and accompany him in his Aston Martin DB5. When 007 engages in a high-speed car chase with Xenia Onatopp, the evaluator becomes noticeably agitated by his driving and orders Bond to stop the car immediately. 007 complies and reveals a hidden bottle of chilled Bollinger and a rose. He then proceeds to seduce Caroline with ease. Later, in a meeting with M, the SIS Head notes that Bond’s psychological evaluation was “excellent.”
