Here is every Bond Girl who died in the 25 James Bond movies (including 1983’s Never Say Never Again). No matter which actor portrays 007, whether its from the original movie continuity spanning Sean Connery to Pierce Brosnan or Daniel Craig’s rebooted canon, James Bond always saves the day, but sadly, he doesn’t always save the girl.

While many Bond movies end with a triumphant 007 making love to the main Bond Girl of that particular film, the franchise has also left behind a huge body count of Bond Girls; 33 Bond Girls perished throughout the James Bond film saga, including 007’s own bride, Tracy (Diana Rigg), in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Tragically, the Bond Girls usually die violently; shooting the lovely ladies with a gun is the most common way Bond Girls die as 11 perished by an assassin’s bullet (and occasionally, via James Bond’s Walther PPK). Many Bond villains also use creative ways to kill Bond Girls, such as drowning (one is even drowned in water bed), mauled by hunting dogs, and even eaten by piranha. Of course, the most iconic Bond Girl death of all was in 1964’s Goldfinger when Jill Masterson (Shirley Eaton) dies from being covered in gold paint, to which Quantum of Solace pays homage 44 years later when Strawberry Fields (Gemma Arterton) is identically covered in crude oil.


Remarkably, there are three Bond movies in which no Bond Girls died: 1983’s Octopussy, 1987’s The Living Daylights, and 2005’s Spectre. However, 2006’s Casino Royale holds the unfortunate record as the deadliest film for the Bond Girls; all three introduced in the film are violently killed. While the image of Bond Girls is as James Bond’s sexy companions, the moniker “Bond Girl” also includes a number of villains who have tried to kill 007, and this list will also include Bond’s own boss, M (Judi Dench), who died in 2012’s Skyfall.
