American model and actress Talisa Soto will probably always be remembered for being a Bond Girl back in the 1989 Bond movie License to Kill, starring Timothy Dalton as 007. Playing a Bond Girl is a defining moment in most actresses careers, so Talisa is not alone.
Since then, there have been plenty of Bond Girls come and go and, with the recent talk of Penelope Cruz being a potential Bond Girl in the future, we decided to go back and have a look at some of the past ones. While we could have chosen one of the more popular ones, we could not get past Talisa Soto.
For those of you unfamiliar with the James Bond movie License to Kill, Talisa played the character Lupe Lamora, the girlfriend of the drugs lord Franz Sanchez. License to Kill earned rave reviews for being darker than the previous Bond films, with Timothy Dalton also earning praise for his portrayal as 007.
As you may well remember, poor Lupe Lamora gets rejected by James Bond, who chooses Pam Bouvier over her. With all the recent talk of the future of the Bond franchise and the possible future Bond Girls, we have decided that it is perfect to have former Bond Girl Talisa Soto as our Girl of the Day.
