Margaret Nolan, 'Goldfinger' actress, dead at 76

Nolan was famously featured covered in gold paint for the opening sequence of the James Bond movie 'Goldfinger,' and played 'Dink' in the 1964 film.

Actress and model Margaret Nolan, who most famously was featured in the opening title sequence of the 1964 James Bond film 'Goldfinger' covered in gold paint, has died at the age of 76.

It was director Edgar Wright who announced Nolan's passing on Twitter Sunday saying, "She was the middle of Venn diagram of everything cool in the '60s; having appeared with the Beatles, been beyond iconic in Bond and been part of the Carry On cast too."

Wright wrote, "She became deeply involved in political theatre and more recently created visual art."

Nolan was born in Somerset, England on October 29, 1943, and started out her career modeling, using the name Vicki Kennedy before going into acting. 

After her famous performance alongside Sean Connery in the Bond film "Goldfinger," Nolan later went on to pose for Playboy magazine. 

Nolan leaves behind her two sons Oscar Deeks, who is a cinematographer, and Luke O'Sullivan.
