Honor Blackman biography (bio):
Honor Blackman is an English actress, who is best known for the roles of Cathy Gale on The Avengers and as Bond girl Pussy Galore in Goldfinger.

Youth:
Blackman, who was born in West Ham, London, trained as an actress at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London after persuading her father that an appropriate birthday gift would be acting lessons.

Films:
Blackman's films include: Quartet and So Long at the Fair with Dirk Bogarde, Life at the Top with Laurence Harvey, The Virgin and the Gypsy, Shalako with Sean Connery and Brigitte Bardot and Something Big with Dean Martin.
She played the role of Hera in Jason and the Argonauts (1963). She also did an overdub for an actress in the same film providing the voice for the character of Medea. Other work includes the films Bridget Jones Diary and Hot Gold.

Bond girl:
Aged 37 when she filmed Goldfinger, Blackman remains the second oldest actress to play a Bond Girl, the oldest being Deborah Kerr in the non-EON Bond film Casino Royale. She is one of two Bond girls who was older than the actor playing Bond, the other being Diana Rigg in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (Rigg had earlier replaced Blackman on The Avengers, playing the role of Emma Peel - as a coincidence, Joanna Lumley, who was to later to appear in the sequel to The Avengers, The New Avengers, appeared in On Her Majesty's Secret Service.)
Bond film supremo Albert R. Broccoli was later to openly admit that she had been cast on the back of her success in The Avengers, despite the fact that the American audience had never even seen the programme. Broccoli said "The Brits would love her because they knew her as Mrs Gale, the Yanks would like her because she was so good, it was a perfect combination".

Theatre:
In 1986 she had a role in the Doctor Who serial The Trial of a Time Lord. She spent most of 1987 at the Fortune Theatre. Her show Word Of Honor, premiered in October 2006. In April 2007 she took over the role of Fraulein Schneider from Olivier Award-winning actress Sheila Hancock, in Cabaret the musical at the Lyric Theatre in London's West End.

Television:
In a 1965 episode of The Avengers, titled "Too Many Christmas Trees", John Steed received his Christmas cards, one of which was from Cathy. "A card from Mrs Gale!", Steed exclaims in delight. Then, reading the inscription, he says, in a puzzled voice, "Whatever can she be doing at Fort Knox...?". It was an inside joke, as Blackman was filming Goldfinger at the time.
From 1990 to 1995 she appeared as the promiscuous grandmother character, Laura West, in the popular sitcom The Upper Hand.
In September 2004, she briefly joined the Coronation Street cast, in a storyline about 'wife swapping.
In 2007, she participated in the BBC TV project The Verdict, as one of 12 well known figures forming a Jury to hear a fictional rape case. The series was designed to explore the Jury system. She was sworn in as a juror under then name 'Honor Kaufmann'.

Personal life:
She married twice: Bill Sankey (1946 1956) and the British actor Maurice Kaufmann (1963 1975), with whom she appeared in the film Fright (1971); they adopted two children, Barnaby and Lottie.

Singing career:
A song she recorded with Patrick Macnee during 1964, "Kinky Boots", was a surprise hit, peaking at #5, in 1990 after it was played incessantly by BBC Radio 1 breakfast show presenter Simon Mayo. After her appearance in Goldfinger, Blackman recorded a full album of songs entitled Everything I've Got.

Political activism:
She is a signed supporter of Republic, The Campaign for an Elected Head of State, the UK campaign to replace the monarchy with a republic.
She declined a CBE honour in 2002. She has also been a prominent supporter of the Liberal Democrats.
