Bond Girl: Domino Petachi (
Never Say Never Again, 1983)
Kim Basinger was 30 when she played Domino Petachi in
Never Say Never Again—but Sean Connery—who reprised his role as James Bond after retiring in 1971—was 53. And though the movie is called an “unofficial” Bond movie because it was not produced by EON Productions, it grossed an impressive $160 million at the box office. Since then, Basinger has worked steadily, earning a Golden Globe nod for her role in
The Natural in 1984, and a Globe and an Academy Award for her performance as Lynn Bracken in
L.A. Confidential in 1997.
