Formidable assassin and devoted member of Renard‘s (ROBERT CARLYLE) crime syndicate in The World Is Not Enough. She’s portrayed by striking Italian actress MARIA GRAZIA CUCINOTTA. She’s called the Cigar Girl because she gives Bond a cigar in the Swiss banker’s office in Bilbao, Spain. Later, she’s proven to be the assassin who takes out a chunk of Ml-6 headquarters in London.
