Saida, Thursday’s Temptress…Day 57 of Bond 365

 It’s Friday-eve and this week has been busy! And, a busy weekend will follow with the Long Beach Comic Expo being held Saturday and Sunday at the Long Beach Convention Center here in Southern California. I’ll be moderating a panel on the film She Makes Comics, a Kickstarter-funded documentary that came out a few months ago. Several women in the comic book industry are featured, covering the historical and contemporary ramifications of women’s contribution to the industry as creator and consumer. It should be a fascinating panel.

Carmen du Sautoy got her start as a character named ‘Child’ in the television series Play for Today (1970). It would be four years until she was cast as the Lebanese belly dancer Saida in The Man with the Golden Gun. From there, de Sautoy went on to work on quite a few tv series that included Astronauts, Chessgame and Lost Empires as well guest appearances on show favorites, Absolutely Fabulous, Agatha Christie: Poirot and Kavanagh QC.

In between shows and films, du Sautoy was acting in productions presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal National Theatre and West End (London). In 1979, she won Best Supporting Actress from the London Theatre Critics’ Award for her role in Once in a Lifetime.
