1989’s Licence to Kill was arguably the better of Timothy Dalton‘s two outings as James Bond 007 and it also starred the understated beauty of former model Carey Lowell as Pam Bouvier. James Bond is initially dismissive of her abilities and courage and as the film progresses we see how tough and capable she is.
Although perhaps not having the exotic hotness of her co-star Talisa Soto (Lupe Lamora), Pam scores very well in categories to just miss out making my Definitive Top 10 Bond Girls list. Pam has natural beauty with eyes and smile that sparkle. She is often over-looked in most best Bond Girls lists.
Following Licence to Kill, Carey has had a very active acting career, mostly in TV. In 2002 she married fellow actor Richard Gere.
James Bond: [Pam kisses Bond] Why don’t you wait until you’re asked?
