39 Bond Chicks Then and Now

Barbara Bach

Barbara Bach

No relation to the famous musician, we don’t think. Bach grew up in Queens, New York, before a promising modeling career caused her to drop out of school at 16.

Bach first appeared in several European films before finally catching the eye of one Bond producer and getting cast as Anya Amasova for the 1977 Bond classic, The Spy Who Loved Me. That role probably helped her catch the eye of one of her music contemporaries, Beatles member Ringo Starr, who married Bach in 1981.
