    Eunice Gayson - the actress who played the first "Bond girl" - has died at the age of 90.

    She played Sylvia Trench in 007's 1962 debut, Dr No.

    During the filming Gayson helped calm Sean Connery's nerves so he could deliver the spy's most famous catchphrase - giving his name as "Bond, James Bond" - for the first time.

    A post on her official Twitter feed said: "She will be very much missed."

    "I admire your courage, Miss...?"

    "Trench, Sylvia Trench. I admire your luck. Mister...?"

    "Bond. James Bond."

    Still one of the coolest scenes in cinematic history.

    I'm going to miss Eunice Gayson.

    Requiescat in pace.
