Her character, the voluptuous Sylvia Trench, is famous for coaxing Bond's most famous line out of him in the first film, Dr No. "An unbelievable lady who left a lasting impression on everyone she met", a tweet read. It also marked the first appearance of a "Bond Girl", actress Eunice Gayson.

Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli offered their condolences to her family in a statement posted on the 007 Twitter feed. She played Sylvia Trench, who meets Bond at a Baccarat table in a London club.

Connery asks her for her name in a scene, saying, "I admire your courage, Miss, er?"

Gayson remained a presence in the Bond franchise until her death.

Eunice Gayson leaves behind a daughter, Kate, who had a brief cameo in the 1995 Bond film GoldenEye. "The day took off from that moment - he was so relaxed".

No matter, for by then Gayson's claim to cinematic immortality was unimpeachable, even though her voice was not heard in either film: she was dubbed by the actor Nikki van der Zyl. Lewis Gilbert, the director of the next film in the series - Goldfinger (1964) - had other ideas however, and kiboshed the idea.

Gayson was originally to be cast as Miss Moneypenny, but the part went to Lois Maxwell instead.

Before making it big as one of Hollywood's most recognisable women, Gayson was born in 1928 in the English city of Surrey.
