Bond girl Maud Adams was born Maud Wikstrom in Sweden in 1945. After working as a fashion model and marrying her first husband in 1966, she started her acting career in Hollywood. She was the only woman to appear in three Bond films: as Andrea in The Man With the Golden Gun (1974), as the title mystery woman in Octopussy (1983), and in an uncredited role in A View to a Kill (1985). Her other film credits include Norman Jewison's futuristic action film Rollerball and the erotic drama Tattoo with Bruce Dern. During the rest of the '80s, she mostly did bad TV movies and theatrical thrillers. Only a few have survived on home video, such as the comic strip-based adventure Jane and the Lost City and the costume adventure Intimate Power with F. Murray Abraham.

In the late '90s, Adams remarried and worked in television back in Sweden. She was the host and director of Kafé Luleå and a regular cast member on Radioskugga and Vita Lögner. In the States, she could be seen offering commentary in numerous James Bond-related documentaries. She was also a guest star on an episode of That '70s Show. In 2003, she offered up her celebrity personality to the convention-goers of Spyfest '03 in Long Beach, CA.
