Margaret Nolan, actress in James Bond film 'Goldfinger' and Beatles movie 'A Hard Days Night,' dead at 76
Longtime actress and artist Margaret Nolan, who played a memorable role in the classic 1964 James Bond film "Goldfinger", has died.
She was 76 years old.
Her death was announced on Sunday night by director Edgar Wright, who recently worked with Nolan on the film "Last Night In Soho".
In the title sequence of "Goldfinger," as well as in marketing for the film, Nolan was known to be covered in gold paint when she wore a bikini. She also appeared in the legendary Beatles film "A Hard Day's Night," which also came out in 1964.
"She was the middle of the Venn diagram of everything cool in the 60s," Wright wrote in a Twitter tribute.
Nolan, who was born in Somerset, England, started out as a model. As an actress, she appeared in dozens of film and television projects over a career spanning six decades.
Her other notable acting appearances included an appearance in the 1970 science fiction musical "Toomorrow" with Olivia Newton-John. She also appeared in several films in the popular British comedy film series "Carry On".
Nolan played the role of Dink in "Goldfinger," the third film in the 007 spy film franchise, and plays Sean Connery as Bond.
Wright, 46, said Nolan played a small role in "Last Night in Soho," a psychological horror film set in London in the 1960s and starring Anya Taylor-Joy. The film is due out next April.
A cause of death for Nolan has not been disclosed.
"She was so funny, sharp and, as you can imagine, full of amazing stories," Wright wrote of Nolan.
"I'm so glad I met her," continued the filmmaker. “My heart goes out to your family and to everyone who loved you. She will be missed very much. "
