You Only Live Twice actress Karin Dor has died aged 79

She got the role of Helga Brandt in the fifth part of "James bond", called "you only Live twice".

The actress, who starred opposite Sean Connery's incarnation of James Bond in 007 flick You Only Live Twice, passed away on Monday (06Nov17).

Despite initially rallying and being cast in a high-profile comedy, she began suffering headaches and entered a care home in March this year, where she died.

Last July, Dor fell and hit her head on a concrete curb and was unconscious for 15 minutes in an incident involving a mum and her buggy, German newspaper Bild reports.

Former Bond girl Karin Dor has died, aged 79.

Things didn't end well for her character as Blofeld - played by Donald Pleasence - opened a trap door which dropped her into a pool filled with piranhas as punishment for failing to do away with Bond.


Dor also appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's missile crisis thriller "Topaz".

The late star landed her first screen role aged 17 in Rosen-Resli.

She featured opposite Christopher Lee in "The Invisible Dr Mabuse" (1962) in the film, directed by her then-husband Harald Reinl.

The couple split in 1968 and had one child before separation.

She was married to American stuntman George Robotham from 1988 until his death in 2007.
