Tracy di Vicenzo-Bond
|Bond Girls Home | Bio | Pics & Clips|
- Diana Rigg
- Though starting out in acting in the Royal Shakespeare Company, Rigg made her name taking over for Honor Blackman (who was just cast as PussyGalore in Goldfinger) as the partner of Patrick Macnee (who was later cast as Sir Godfrey Tibbett in A View to a Kill) on The Avengers. As Emma Peel between 1965 and 1968, she became well known as the woman most known for her beauty, avant-garde fashions, wit and battle capability.
Who she is:
- Born Teresa Draco in 1943, she is the child of Marc-Ange Draco, the head of "The Union Corse", a powerful international Mafia crime syndicate – not quite as large as SPECTRE but with substantially larger "legal" operations, including Draco Construction. Teresa goes by "Tracy" because she feels "Teresa" is too grand. (As she once said, "Teresa is a saint; I'm known as Tracy.")
- Teresa was the only daughter of Marc-Ange Draco and his English-born wife, who had met him while he was hiding out from the authorities in Corsica. Tracy's mother died when Teresa was 12; her father then sent her to a boarding school in Switzerland. Deprived of a stable home life, Teresa joined the "international fast set", committing "one scandal after another"; when Draco cut off her allowance, Teresa committed "a greater folly" out of spite. She later married Italian Count Giulio di Vicenzo who, during their marriage, got ahold of a large portion of her money before eventually leaving her; he subsequently died while driving a Maserati in the company of one of his mistresses. During this marriage, Teresa had a child, who later died of spinal meningitis.
How she and Bond meet:
- 007 rescues her from committing suicide on a Portuguese beach.
- "Why do you persist in trying to rescue me, Mr. Bond?"
- "People who want to stay alive play it safe."
- "We should have rung ahead and booked."
How she saves the day:
- She rescues Bond from being captured by Irma Bunt, distracts Blofeld from the on-coming assault force, and fights Grunther to the death.
What happens to her:
- Despite initially rejecting Bond's romantic overtures, assuming that he is trying to buy her father's favour, Tracy and Bond eventually fell in love. They married, but Tracy was murdered on their wedding day in a drive-by shooting.
- In the novel, Blofeld fires an automatic weapon from his car killing Tracy, who is at the wheel of her Lancia Aurelia, with Bond in the passenger seat.
- In the film, Bond and Tracy leave their wedding in his Aston Martin DBS and stop to remove flowers from the car. A Mercedes 600 drives past with Blofeld at the wheel, and Irma Bunt in the back. She fires the gun and Tracy is shot in the head through the Aston Martin's windscreen.

Tracy has always been my fav bond girl but vesper was still good What haunted me about her death was how they showed the bullet riddled car bit in the credits it still does haunt me Its a shame that george lazenby is only in one bond movie he's hotter than conery.
