Bond villain Karin Dor dies at 79

Bond actress Helga Brandt has died aged 79

Karin Dor, the German actor who played Bond girl Helga Brandt in You Only Live Twice, has died aged 79.

In her later years, Dor had veered towards German theatre and did minimal films. She was married three times: one of her husbands was George Robotham, a US stunt-director, from 1988 until his death in 2007.

German news agency dpa, citing a Munich theater where Dor had worked for a long time, reported late Wednesday that she died Monday in a care home.

Bond fans will recall her character initially kidnapping 007 before being seduced by the British spy - an act that sees Brandt fed to a pool of piranhas by the villainous Blofeld.

Karin also appeared in Sir Alfred Hitchcock's movie "Topaz" in 1969 alongside Frederick Stafford and Dany Robin.

Director Harald Reinl was impressed with her ability and cast her in "The Silent Angel", and then married her in 1954.

Her third and final husband was former "Batman" stuntman George Robotham, who Karin married in 1988 and was with up until his death in 2007. Dor is survived by her only child, her son named Andreas.
