Bond Girl

Way back when, I remember distinctly looking for more information anywhere I could find it when I learned there was a transsexual woman who landed an acting job as a James Bond girl. Of course I found out her name was Caroline Cossey.  She appeared in the 1981 James Bond film “For Your Eyes Only.” Following her appearance in the film, she was outed in the tabloids and ended up as the first transgender woman to pose for “Playboy” in 1991.

In 1992 Caroline Cossey married Canadian David Finch and they currently live in the Atlanta, Georgia area . Which is as close as I can find to current information.

She still has an active Twitter account which you can follow if interested. It should be remembered after Cossey was outed and lost her career, she became a true pioneer fighting for transgender rights.
