She then reprised her role as Sylvia Trench in "From Russia with Love" in 1963.

The original "Bond girl" Eunice Gayson has died at age 90.

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

"Dr. No", released in 1962, was the film that started it all, with Sean Connery as Agent 007 in the series based on Ian Fleming's novels about a suave British spy.

In her role as Sylvia Trench, Gayson, who died on 8 June, helped to create one of cinema's most enduring catchphrases. On the actresses Twitter page, her family wrote that she was an extraordinary person who always had a tremendous impression on the people she met. She will be very much missed.

"He had to say Bond, James Bond, but he came out with other permutations like Sean Bond, James Connery".

"Bond, James Bond", the global man of mystery declares.

"I'd known Sean for years and I'd never seen him so nervous as he was on that day because of all these delays", she said of this scene. "We went back on set and he said the name "Bond, James Bond" in a lovely way".

Appearing as Trench in Connery's first film as iconic British superspy James Bond, Gayson set the standard for the film's leading ladies and prompted Connery's Bond to deliver the immortal introduction: "Bond". The day took off from that moment.

Eunice Gayson leaves behind a daughter, Kate, who had a brief cameo in the 1995 Bond film GoldenEye. She also appeared in From Russia With Love.

As originally planned, the character of Trench was to have returned in subsequent Bond adventures, but director Guy Hamilton dropped her from the third film, "Goldfinger".
