She is most definitely not a weak bimbo who fawns over James Bond, quite the opposite. She is a tough, independent, resourceful and cold-blooded woman who uses her sexuality and intelligence to get what she wants.
She is definitely a ‘sexy chick’ who likes to wear motorbike leather, especially when riding a BSA bike equipped with deadly rocket! When she first meets James Bond, she picks him up in her Ford Mustang convertible and then scares him with the speed of her driving.
Later in the film she kills another Bond girl, Paula Caplan (Martine Beswick), before infamously waiting for Bond in a sexy scene in his hotel bath tub. After they sleep together she reveals her true SPECTRE motives and boasts that she is definitely not like other girls who can be seduced into joining 007’s cause.

Fiona: But of course, I forgot your ego, Mr. Bond. James Bond, the one where he has to make love to a woman, and she starts to hear heavenly choirs singing. She repents, and turns to the side of right and virtue…

Fiona: … but not this one!
Played beautifully by Italian Luciana Paluzzi who actually auditioned for the role of Domino Derval (she lost out to Claudine Auger) but was thrilled to get the part of Fiona Volpe as it was a much more interesting and enjoyable part.

Carey Lowell (Pam Bouvier)
