London, September 22: Three of Bond's love interests from the 60's and 70's got together at Stoke Park, Bucks, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first 007 movie.

The former Bond girls, Tania Mallet, Eunice Gayson and Britt Ekland made their appearance at the event, where scenes from both 'Goldfinger' and 'Tomorrow Never Dies' were filmed.

Swedish blonde Britt Ekland, now 69, was already a top model and actress before she landed the role of Mary Goodnight alongside Roger Moore in 'The Man With The Golden Gun' in 1974, the Daily Mail reported.

She said that Moore saved her during a stunt, when she fell.

She also stated that Moore had been a gentleman during a scene where he had to slip his hands beneath the sheets on a slow boat to China, at the end of the film.

Eunice Gayson recalled that the first Bond Sean Connery had not been so self-assured when he came to utter the classic phrase "The name's Bond - James Bond" for the first time in 'Dr No.'

She had to give him a few drinks to calm his nerves after director Terence Young told her to do so.

But later on Connery became so drunk, that despite saying his lines perfectly during the filming, he could not recall anything.

Gayson also revealed that she had known Moore previously, as he had been a pal of his boyfriend, and liked kissing him when she reprised the role of Sylvia in second Bond film 'From Russia With Love' in 1963.

Fellow Bond girl Tania Mallet starred as Tilly Masterson in 'Goldfinger' in 1964 where she was killed by villain Oddjob's flying razor-edged bowler hat.

It was the last time she acted in a movie as the pay was much less compared to her modelling salary. (ANI)
