Bond - Former Bond Girl Swaps Pvc For The Pulpit
A former Bond girl who appeared alongside Pierce Brosnan in Tomorrow Never Dies has become a permanent member of the Church of England clergy.
Shannon Ledbetter, a former model, starred in the 1997 movie as one of 007's female sidekicks, and memorably wore a $375,000 (£250,000) Pvc dress for the role.
She quit acting and modelling to be ordained into the church in 2003, and on Monday (10Oct11), she was inducted as a canon - a permanent member of cathedral clergy - at Blackburn cathedral in the north of England.
Ledbetter says, "Many women are ordained in the Church of England. I'm happy to embrace the challenge of changing people's minds."
