British actor Earl Cameron, who starred as Pinder in the 1965 James Bond film 'Thunderball', celebrates his 100th birthday today. 

In the film, Pinder is James Bond ally in Nassau. Operating from the basement of his boating supplies shop, Symonette Marine Store, he assists 007 in his investigation of Emilio Largo.

In recent years, you can spot him in The Interpreter, The Queen, and playing alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Christopher Nolan’s Inception.

Often dubbed 'Britain's first black movie star,' “I never saw myself as a pioneer,” he told the Guardian recently. “It was only later, looking back, that it occurred to me that I was.”
