The Complete History of Bond Villains

Fiona Volpe

Appeared In: Thunderball (1965)
Played By: Luciana Paluzzi
Diabolical Weapon: Motorcycle missile launcher
Killed By: Shot in the spine

Even now, Fiona Volpe is one of the most physically dangerous women Bond has ever encountered. She’s a cold-blooded killer for SPECTRE, and, unlike so many other would-be assassins from the series, succeeds in killing many of her targets. Of course, all of that villainy doesn’t stop Bond from sleeping with her. In one of the most debated scenes in the series, Bond spins Volpe in the way of an oncoming bullet as an assassin takes a shot at him. This was the first time he killed a woman on the screen, even though it wasn’t an explicit murder, more like self-defense.
