Actress Lois Maxwell, who was known to millions of fans through her role as Miss Moneypenny in a series of Bond movies, has died in Australia, an official said Sunday. She was 80.

She first played the character, with whom the ever-charming 007 constantly flirted, alongside Sean Connery in “Dr No” in 1962.

She continued to play the role for more than two decades, starring in her final Bond movie, the 1985 “A View To A Kill,” with Roger Moore.
