Pleased To Meet You
Dr Molly Warmflash is employed by the British Secret Service and on "The World Is Not Enough" mission, is posted to Scotland to fitness check the 00 Agents preparing to track and kill Renard. However, this event is clearly not the first time James Bond has had dealings with the glamorous doctor.

"It's moving through the medulla oblongata, killing off his senses. Touch, smell, he feels no pain... He can push himself harder, longer than any normal man. The bullet will kill him, but he'll grow stronger every day until the day he dies."

A bright and a competent doctor, Warmflash takes a special interest in the case of 007 - offering him some special treatments. She is bold, and despite pressures from her colleagues, practices her own way. She demonstrates a solid understanding of the nervous system and neurology and serves MI6 not simply as a GP but as a medical consultant whilst briefing assignments.

Posted to Eileen Donan in Scotland and tasked with the evaluation of all 00 Agents M wishes to deploy in search of Renard, Bond visits the good doctor when he finds the ever-efficient Moneypenny has stricken him from the active duty roster. Bond presses Dr Warmflash for a clean bill of health, which she gives him so long as he remains in 'constant contact'.

"You'd have to promise to call me... this time!"


Born in 1961 in Dorset, UK, to Deborah and Simon Scott Thomas. Simon was a pilot for the Royal Navy - hence the need to travel frequently with his family - but he was tragically lost in an airborne accident when Serena was barely three years old. Scott Thomas' mother, Deborah Hurlbatt, also studied drama and traveled frequently prior to her marriage, encouraged her daughters to do the same. Serena is the younger sister of acclaimed British-born actress (now living in France) Kristin Scott Thomas.

It was not until later in life that Serena earned her first on-screen role. She performed in "She-Wolf of London" (1990) aged 29 and the following year appeared in a Agatha Christie screen dramatisation of "Wasps' Nests".


In 1993 Scott Thomas played the ill-fated Princess Diana in a docu-drama called "Her True Story". Out of this controversial lead, Serena earned a regular role in the Crime adventure "Nash Bridges" - the San Francisco-set cop-drama starring Don Johnson. She landed a supporting role in the risqué comedy "Relax, It's Just Sex" (1998) before being picked up for a small role in the 1999 Bond film "The World Is Not Enough".

Beyond Bond, Serena performed regularly in "All Souls" (2001), playing another doctor, Nicole De Brae in a haunted-hospital drama. Scott Thomas continued a run of guest-starring roles - largely in American television. Notably a semi-regular role in "Wicked Wicked Games" between 2006-2007.

In both 2003 and 2005, Serena Scott Thomas returned to her home in order to play roles on the West End - the former, "Three Sisters", the Chekhov-penned production and "As You Desire Me", as made famous by the 1932 Greta Garbo film of the same name.

Scott Thomas married Scott J Tepper, an American entertainer, in 1996. The couple had one daughter, Tallulah the following year before a divorce in 2004. She is an expert horse-rider, competing in Events and Dressage in the USA and foxhunts in the UK with the Blackmore Vale Hunt.
