A beautiful 8 x 10 black & white portrait of actress Eunice Gayson, signed with a fountain pen, adding 'Greetings!'. The British actress, born in Croydon on 17 March 1928, is best known for playing Sylvia Trench, James Bond's girlfriend in the first two Bond films (Dr. No and From Russia with Love). Originally, Gayson was going to be cast as Miss Moneypenny, but the part went to Lois Maxwell instead. Gayson was to have been a regular in the Bond film series, but her character was dropped. Like nearly all of the actresses who appeared in the first two Bond films, Gayson's voice in Dr. No and From Russia with Love was overdubbed by voice actress Nikki van der Zyl, though her real voice can still be heard in original trailers for Dr. No. As the first female to be seen in Dr. No, Eunice is officially the very first actress to play a Bond girl.
