She also played the goddess Hera in Jason and the Argonauts and starred as Laura West in the 1990s sitcom The Upper Hand. 

Honor went on to appear in theatrical productions including The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady and Cabaret.

Recently, the actress toured and performed in her show, which was entitled Honor Blackman.

During the tour, she reflected on “her astonishing life, her beginnings, her family, and her rise to stardom with her usual sense of humour and perspective”.

However, Honor previously revealed her regrets about leaving The Avengers for the movie role.

She explained: “I walked away at the wrong moment. 

“They were just going from black and white to colour, they were starting to get real film money.”

The film star also told Express.co.uk that she enjoys attending Bond conventions in an interview from 2015.
