Lois Maxwell (February 14, 1927 – September 29, 2007) was a Golden Globe-winning Canadian actress, known for originating the role of Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond franchise. Starring in fourteen James Bond movies, many fans credit her as the definitive Miss Moneypenny. She was succeeded by Caroline Bliss and later Samantha Bond.
In late 90’s she was diagnosed with bowel cancer; following surgery in 2001, she left the United Kingdom and moved to Perth, Western Australia to live with her son’s family. She remained there until her death at Fremantle Hospital, on September 29, 2007; she was 80 years old.
I was never a fan of James Bond, but I remember Miss Moneypenny. I never paid much attention to her though. She was the origianl Miss Moneypenny. She was in total 14 of James Bond movies.
