- Lois Chiles
How she and Bond meet:
- Bond is assigned to investigate Hugo Drax. Goodhead works at Drax's research facility.
- Bond: "A woman!"
Holly: "Your powers of observation do you credit, Mr. Bond."
How she helps save the day:
- She pilotes Moonraker 6 to Drax's space station. She later pilots Moonraker 5 to escape Drax's space station and destroy the globes carrying the lethal gas.
Bond babe name ranking:
- #2. Yep, Dr. Goodhead. Really. Ridiculous.
- Lois Chiles was happy to be cast as the brainiest of the Bond Girls. Her Dr. Holly Goodhead, in 1979's Moonraker, was a NASA astronaut, a CIA agent and an astrophysicist. Says Chiles: "Roger [Moore] used to tease me a lot for asking so many questions about our scenes." Moore was accustomed to costarring with neophytes. But Chiles, an experienced actress, had played supporting roles in 1973's The Way We Were and 1974's The Great Gatsby. The kidding stopped when Chiles, then 32, learned during filming in Paris that her brother Clay, 25, was losing his battle with Hodgkin's disease. After Moonraker wrapped, she jetted back to their hometown, Houston, to donate platelets every 10 days to Clay, who died a short time later.
- Chiles went on to play an oil tycoon on Dallas (1982-83), a reporter in 1987's Broadcast News and a sexy Manhattanite in Lush Life, a 1994 TV movie. Next she gets the Quentin Tarantino treatment opposite Billy Baldwin in Curdled, due next spring. She lives in a two-bedroom house in Santa Monica -- a tumultuous three-year romance with rocker Don Henley having ended in the early '80s. (He's now married to model Sharon Summerall.) "He's a great guy," is all she'll say, and she is similarly circumspect about the current man in her life. "I'm everyone's godmother and spend all my time at the toy store," she says.
- To date, Goodhead is the one and only woman whoto have made love with Bond in outer space.
