Actress Margaret Nolan, who appeared on screen alongside James Bond and the Beatles, died on October 5th. She was 76 years old.
The English performer was best known for playing Bond's masseuse Dink in Goldfinger and appearing as the gold-painted model in the 1964 film's title sequence. In the same year she appeared in the musical comedy A Hard Day's Night by the Beatles. She has also appeared in a number of films from the Carry On franchise, the long-running British comedy film series. While most of her acting work was between the 1960s and 1980s, Nolan returned to the big screen as Dame Margaret in 2011 for The Power of Three.
Edgar Wright, who cast Nolan in his upcoming film Last Night in Soho, wrote a tribute to the actress on Twitter.
"It is my sad duty to report that the actress and artist, the great Margaret Nolan, has passed away," Wright tweeted on Sunday. "She was the middle of the Venn diagram of everything that was cool in the 60s. She had performed with the Beatles, in Bond Beyond Icon, and part of the Carry On line-up."
He continued, "She was so funny, sharp and, as you can imagine, full of amazing stories. I am so glad I met her. My heart goes out to her family and to everyone who loved her. She will do it very much to be missed. "
Nolan was born in Somerset, England in 1943 and began her career as a glamor model under the name Vicky Kennedy. In addition to acting, she was also a visual artist who often used pictures of herself as commentary in her work.
Nolan was previously married to cameraman and actor Tom Kempinski. She is survived by her two sons.
