GEORGE LAZENBY

5th September 1939 -

Although only playing 007 on one occasion, George Lazenby brought to the role a younger more physical James Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969), undoubtedly one of the best films in the series.

Playing Bond allowed George Lazenby to move from a career in advertising and straight into the movies. Born in Australia, Lazenby started his career as a model and moved into TV commercials for products such as Fry’s Chocolate Cream bar, where he featured as ‘The Big Fry’ man.

He remained in films after his brief flirtation with Bond, in productions as varied as Universal Soldier, The Man From Hong Kong, Stoner, and Saint Jack. Now a native of California, he still appears occasionally in American TV series. He is divorced from tennis star Pam Shriver by whom he has three children.
