The Sexy Scandinavian Girl…..Day 119 of Bond 365

Julie Ege
Passed away this day in 2008
The Scandinavian Girl in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

She was born Julie Dzuli in Sandnes, Norway in late 1943. Graced with beauty, she participated in the Miss Norway and Miss Universe pageants during the 1960s and she was a Penthouse Pet. She got her acting start in a Norwegian film titled Jennings at Sea (1967). That same year, Ege moved to England to improve her English.

In 1969, she was cast as Helen, or The Scandinavian Girl in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and later appeared in a couple of Hammer Films: Creatures the World Forgot (1971) and The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974).

After Ege retired from acting, she earned a degree in nursing and took it up as a profession in Oslo. Perhaps her interest was the result of having had breast cancer in the mid 1980s, for which she was successfully treated. Unfortunately, she succumbed to lung cancer in 2008.

Bond trivia: According to IMDB, Ege is the only Norwegian to play a Bond girl.
