Molly Peters, a former Bond girl who appeared in the 1965 film "Thunderball," has died at age 75.

Her death comes just a week after Roger Moore, who played James Bond in seven 007 movies, died at the age of 89.

Peters' cause of death has yet to be revealed, but the official James Bond franchise Twitter account posted a tweet on Tuesday, paying homage to her, according to The New York Daily News.


In "Thunderball," Peters played a nurse named Patricia Fearing who took care of James Bond, played by Sean Connery, the New York Daily News noted.

She was the first Bond girl to take off her clothes in a 007 movie.

That particular scene, among others throughout the film, garnered complaints from the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), at the time, according to The Telegraph.

More than 30 scenes were challenged by the BBFC, and one was cut from the movie, The Telegraph noted.

"Thunderball" made over $141 million at the box office in 1965, the New York Daily News noted.

Peters' career on the big screen was short lived, as she would only appear in one other movie after starring in "Thunderball." She appeared in the 1968 comedy "Don't Raise the Bridge, Lower the River." Peters played a secretary in the film.

Twitter users remembered the Bong girl that caught the attention of many viewers in the 1960s.
