George Lazenby opened the temporary exhibit of six lifesize Bond figures in Hollywood this week
By MI6 Staff
As part of the roaming exhibition, the six new handcrafted 007 likenesses touched down in Los Angeles this week. George Lazenby - the second man to play the ineffable secret agent - was on hand to reveal the life-size sculptures to Hollywood's press.
As well as hitting the magic button that dropped a curtain and revealed the figures, the seventy six year-old Lazenby goofed around for photographers, striking poses next to his own likeness.
Although he only appeared in a single Bond outing - "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (1969) - and turned down a long contract with EON Productions, the model-cum-actor has resided in LA for a number of years and made regular, good humoured appearances at screenings and other celebratory events, along with his fellow Bond alumni.
Also on hand was American Bond girl Gloria Hendry who co-starred opposite Sir Roger Moore in "Live And Let Die".
The six Bond figures are on display at Madame Tussauds Hollywood until March 7 2016.
