Honor Blackman, the British actress who played the Bond girl Pussy Galore in “Goldfinger,” has died.

She was 94.

Blackman’s family said in a statement Monday that she died peacefully of natural causes at her home in the southeastern England town of Lewes.

Blackman first became a household name playing Cathy Gale in “The Avengers,” the 1960s spy series. She also co-starred in the 1963 mythological fantasy “Jason and the Argonauts” as the goddess Hera.

But Blackman’s most famous role was as Pussy Galore in 1964′s “Goldfinger.”
