ANDERS, ANDREA

Entry Source: The James Bond Movie Encyclopedia by Steven Jay Rubin


Girlfriend of international assassin Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee) in 1974’s The Man with the Golden Gun. She’s portrayed by Maud Adams, who would go on to play the title character in Octopussy in 1983. Theirs is a loveless relationship: Anders sleeps with Scaramanga prior to every kill—a ritual that is also popular among bullfighters. It’s supposed to improve their eye.

A virtual slave to Scaramanga’s will, Anders’s only hope is to find the one man—James Bond (Roger Moore)—capable of beating Scaramanga at his own game. So Anders sends one of the assassin’s golden bullets to the British Secret Service. In return, she also receives a golden bullet, but at a much higher velocity.
