George Lazenby

George Robert Lazenby is an Australian actor, martial artist and former model. He is known for playing the fictional British secret agent James Bond in the Eon Productions film series, playing the character in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). Lazenby's tenure as Bond was the shortest among the role's actors in the series, appearing in just one film, and he is the only non-British or Irish actor to portray the character. At the age of 29, he was also the youngest actor to be cast as Bond. Beginning his professional career as a model, Lazenby had no prior film experience and had only acted in commercials when he was cast by producer Albert R. Broccoli to replace original Bond actor Sean Connery. He declined subsequent Bond films and instead pursued a career in Britain, Italy, Hong Kong, Australia, and Hollywood, with his most notable works during this period including the anti-war satire Universal Soldier (1971), the giallo Who Saw Her Die? (1972), the martial arts films Stoner (1974), The Man from Hong Kong (1975), and A Queen's Ransom (1976), and the comedy anthology The Kentucky Fried Movie (1977). After his career stalled during this period, he moved into business and invested in real estate. Lazenby later appeared in several films and television series, including roles which parody the James Bond character. In 2017, a Hulu docudrama film, Becoming Bond, featured Lazenby recounting his life story and portrayal as Bond.
