biography

Born on December 12, 1927, in London (some sources list her birth date as 1925 and 1926), actress Honor Blackman was encouraged to select the stage as a career by her father, who gave her acting lessons one year for her birthday. She also trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. At eighteen, she married her first husband, Bill. Following the end of World War II, Blackman was cast in a few plays in London's West End and nabbed a uncredited role in her first film, the drama Fame Is the Spur (1947). After signing with J. Arthur Rank's Rank Organisation in 1948, her career gained momentum with a role in the horror film Daughter of Darkness (1948; with Maxwell Reed). She went on to star in the comedy A Boy, a Girl and a Bike (1949; with Diana Dors) and earned supporting roles in several big-budget films, such as Conspirator (1949; with Robert Taylor and Elizabeth Taylor) and So Long at the Fair (1950; with Jean Simmons and Dirk Bogarde). By the mid 1950s, however, Blackman's first marriage fell apart, and career-wise she found herself stuck in the middle, working steadily but without a breakthrough role. The dawning of the 1960s would soon change all that.

A role on her first television series Probation Officer, a 1959-1962 ITV series, ended after just a few episodes when Blackman left for another ITV series The Four Just Men. This syndicated series briefly gave her international exposure but folded after 39 episodes. Her career began to look up with a role in A Matter of WHO (1961; with Terry-Thomas and Alex Nicol) and, more importantly, when she replaced Ian Hendry after the first season of ITV's action comedy The Avengers, in 1962. On a personal front, in 1961 Blackman married actor Maurice Kaufmann. The couple adopted two children, daughter Lottie and son Barnaby, in the late 1960s.

As the tough secret agent widow Dr. Cathy Gale in The Avengers, Blackman finally found success and became wildly popular with British audiences. She also dabbled in singing, with the February 1964 release of the novelty song Kinky Boots, which she recorded with her The Avengers co-star Patrick Macnee. While merely a curiosity upon its original release, the song went to number 5 on the UK charts in 1990. The song was a reference to leather-clad Cathy Gale's boots which became fashionable in the 1960s. Blackman also released an album in 1965 titled Everything I've Got. After two seasons, she left her role in The Avengers in order to accept the role of Pussy Galore in the 007 film Goldfinger. Often cited as the oldest living Bond girl, Blackman was 37 years old when the film was released in December 1964 and created a sensation with audiences worldwide.

In the early 1970s, Blackman went on a self-imposed hiatus from films and television, returning to the screen in the horror film To the Devil a Daughter (1976; with Richard Widmark and Christopher Lee). Meanwhile, her marriage to Maurice Kaufmann ended in 1975, and Blackman has remained single. Her career has remained strong in television, as a guest star on such programs as Dr. Who and Coronation Street and as the star of the popular British television comedy The Upper Hand, which ran from 1990 to 1996. Now in her 80s, Blackman shows no signs of slowing down; her latest film is Cockneys vs Zombies, released in 2012.
