FAVORITE BOND GIRL The legendary Honey Ryder in the first James Bond film, Dr. No. She is an independent and resourceful woman who doesn't need anyone’s help. She only opens up to Bond after he makes it clear that his intentions are honorable. And who can forget her iconic, Miami-style entrance in the film as she emerges from the ocean in a white bikini. Any woman who is that strong and confident is my kind of woman! FAVORITE BOND MOVIE FAVORITE JAMES BOND VILLAIN Le Chiffre in Casino Royale was a rebirth of the classic Bond villain, complete with a creepy eye. He held an expert poker-face during the high-stakes game which gave Bond some trouble. I sure wouldn’t be able to keep a poker-face if I were playing him, so well done to Bond for beating him at his own game!
