About Shirley Eaton Autographed Memorabilia & Collectibles
In spite of her brief acting career, Shirley Easton, born on January 12 1937, was still able to establish a name for herself. This can be mainly credited for her casting as one of the famous line of Bond Girls. Easton, on her part, took the role of Jill Masterson in 1964’s Goldfinger, which still had Sir Sean Connery
playing 007 James Bond. Other famous Bond girls include Ursula Andress, which many consider as the classic Bond Girl, and Halle Berry
, who appeared in 2002’s Die Another Day.
Although being a Bond Girl gave Easton a lot of popularity to ride on, Easton made an early decision to devote much of her time caring for her family. Most of her works were also limited to British soil, which allowed her to work with mostly British comedians in films such as The Girl Hunters, Three Men in a Boat, and a recurring role in the Carry On franchise. Easton’s appearances on TV are rare but one exception was when she agreed to be a part of a trilogy of episodes of The Saint, which starred another James Bond hero, Roger Moore
If you are a fond of the James Bond franchise, you will find everything you will want to add to your collection in the website.
After Easton’s portrayal of Jill Masterson, whose death in the film is considered to be one of the most visually striking in the series, gave birth to the urban myth that the actress had truly ended up dying due to skin suffocation. Easton easily destroyed the myth by appearing live in the a 2003 episode of the MythBusters.
