British actress Zena Moyra Marshall was
born on New Year's day in 1925 in Nairobi, Kenya.
Her first big screen role came as a bit
part (lady-in-waiting) in the Gabriel Pascal produced 1945 "Caesar
and Cleopatra" that starred Claude Rains and Vivien
Leigh in respective title roles. It would be 17 years before
Marshall had her real brush with James Bond, but the film
also featured an uncredited debut appearance from future-007
actor Roger Moore as a Roman Soldier.
Her exotic looks landed her several small
parts in film and television, often being cast in ethnic
as Italians and Asian characters. Notable films for
the 5' 5" actress included "Good Time Girl", "The
Lost People", "Helter Skelter", "So
Long At The Fair", "Morning Departure",
'Three Cases Of Murder", and "Crosstrap".
In 1957, Marshall appeared in two episodes of "O.S.S.",
a TV series based on the US spy agency during WWII, produced
by ITC in the UK and distributed State-side by ABC
