The first ever Bond girl- Eunice Gayson  has died at the age of 90

Born in Surrey in 1928, Gayson played many United Kingdom screen roles, including the 1958 Hammer Horror scream classic The Revenge of Frankenstein, prior to being chosen as the first iconic Bond girl.

"I admire your courage, Miss, uh...?"

She said: "He had to say Bond, James Bond, but he came out with other permutations like Sean Bond, James Connery".

According to her Twitter page, Gayson died Friday.

The news was announced via Gayson's Twitter account along with a photo of the English actress.

Originally, Gayson was meant to play M's secretary, Miss Moneypenny, but Lois Maxwell landed that role instead. "Trench. Sylvia Trench. I admire your luck, Mr. ...?"

She also helped Sean Connery overcome nerves to deliver his most iconic Bond line in Dr. No, the BBC reports. "The day took off from that moment - he was so relaxed".

She played the same part in the second Bond film, "From Russia With Love", in 1963.

A fact many people don't know is that while she appeared in the Bond films, her lines were actually recorded by voiceover artist Nikki van der Zyl.

She was the only woman to ever appear in two Bond films as the same character.

When asked in an interview in 2012 who her favourite actor to play the British spy was, Gayson replied: "Obviously my loyalty is with Sean". She might have had a different slice of Bond movie immortality had the original plan - that she play the recurring role of Miss Moneypenny - gone ahead.

She also starred in "The Revenge of Frankenstein" and popular British TV shows like "The Avengers" and "The Saint".
