Blackman's martial arts training helped her win the role of lesbian pilot Pussy Galore, an associate of gold-obsessed Bond villain Goldfinger before becoming a Bond ally, in the third James Bond film.

"I was already a James Bond fan but I asked to read (the novel) Goldfinger before taking the part," she once admitted. "By the time I had read it, I was convinced it was absolutely me."

Blackman, who had been a dispatch rider during the Second World War, however, came to public notice as the feisty, black-clad female agent in 1960s TV show "The Avengers".

Rest in peace, you beauty. You'll be forever missed.
