- Japanese actress Akiko Wakabayashi (若林 映子), born in 1941.
Who she is:
- An agent for the Japanese Secret Service run by Tiger Tanaka
How she and Bond meet:
- She is the liaison between Bond and Mr. Henderson. She makes contact with Bond at a sumo match and leads him to Tanaka through what seems to be a trap, at first.
- "I think I will enjoy very much serving under you!"
How she helps save the day:
- She rescues Bond from assassins.
- She is killed (instead of Bond) when a SPECTRE agent drops poison down a thread from the roof of their bedroom.
- None. She's more of a Kimono girl.
- Akiko Wakabayashi was originally cast to play the role of Kissy, but when Mie Hama had trouble learning English, the girls' roles were switched and Akiko was cast in the larger part of "Suki," an agent for the Japanese Secret Service. Akiko asked that her character's name be changed to "Aki."
- Wakabayashi didn't know how to drive, the Toyota 2000GT had to be towed by an invisible cable on a framework and stuntmen with wigs had to be used to drive.
