Starring as the bikini-clad Thumper, she did not end up in bed with James Bond. Instead, she got the honor of giving him one of the best kicks in the history of the spy film series.

“I was a bit shocked when they told me I had to kick him (Connery). I certainly had never kicked a man before… but they told me to go ahead and be realistic,” Parks told The Windsor Star about her famous groin kick.

“He was well protected and so I kicked him hard like the script said.”

In October 2015, British actress Naomie Harris was the epitome of style at the photocall for the upcoming James Bond film “Spectre” held at the Corinthia Hotel Ballroom in London.

While her female co-stars Monica Belluci and Lea Seydoux opted for more masculine looks, the first black Moneypenny kept it feminine in a color-blocked Christian Dior dress from the designer’s Fall 2015 collection.

The then 39-year-old actress, who plays the role of Miss Moneypenny in the movie, paired the chic dress with a pair of Aquazzura “Wild Side” peep-toe sandals in suede and mesh.

She may not play a classic Bond girl in the film, but she certainly looked like one at the London photocall.
