Ursula Andress (born 19 March 1936) is a Swiss film and television actress, former model and sex symbol, who has appeared in American, British and Italian films. She is best known for her role as Bond girl Honey Ryder in the first James Bond film, Dr. No, for which she won a Golden Globe. She later starred as Vesper Lynd in the Bond-parody Casino Royale.

Biography

Shortly before his death in 1955, film icon James Dean became involved with 19-year-old Andress. In 1957, she married actor/director John Derek; they divorced in 1966. One of her longest affairs was with Jean-Paul Belmondo. Andress was in a relationship with American actor Harry Hamlin, her co-star in the film Clash of the Titans, from 1979 to 1983. She and Hamlin had a son, Dimitri, in 1980. After her son's birth, Andress scaled back her career, which focused mostly on European TV and films.

On 18 May 2006, on the occasion of the inauguration of the Swiss Consulate General in Scotland, Ursula Andress celebrated her 70th birthday on board the Royal Yacht Britannia in Edinburgh in the company of an international crowd of celebrities.

Une vie vécue avec douceur, ce doux regard et ce sourire narquois, cette légendaire paresse. Aujourd’hui encore, dire Mastroianni ou Marcello évoque une époque : un monde fait de bravoure, de beauté, de charme, de gentillesse. Au travers d’interviews de ses proches et de ses collaborateurs, d’extraits de films et d’images d’archives, ce documentaire narré par Sergio Castellitto veut raconter un homme qui a été le plus grand acteur italien et a vécu de façon extraordinaire avec le succès, en pensant souvent qu’il n’était peut-être qu’en train de rêver.

When the black cloud passes over Fantaghirò's castle, it too disappears, so she joins with Parsel to search for the origins of the black cloud.

Russia at the dawn of the 18th century—a vast, chilling mysterious land, medieval in its character. A country led by a man whose curious, questing spirit is eager to learn all that is new. A monarch who brings his feudal country "kicking and screaming" into the modern world. A shrewd tsar and a visionary. Statesman, sailor, and shipbuilder. Military leader. A husband and a father. A man who dared to dream the impossible dream, and succeeded.
