Kristina Wayborn has unique great looks and an intriguing sex appeal, similar to Heather Graham (who looks like she could be her daughter). One of the sultrier Bond Girls, Kristina's character Magda in Octopussy shows off her athletic qualities and her taunting smile. A bit wooden in the Bond film, I would have liked to see more of her work becasue she seemed like she had great potential beyond a typical blond bomber. She has a vibe that seems to imply she's one cool lady. I wonder where she is now and how her life turned out (probably married a rich guy,,) She'll always be Magda to me - that's not a bad thing, is it?
I don't understand the relationships of Octopussy's women - they are her security staff, circus performing smugglers, and?? How does Maud Adams character Octopussy work with the evil Louis Jordan character Kamal Khan - she seems too smart to buy his phony character - I guess we all do dumb things when the heat is on.
Kristina is the first with her name with real heat - before Applegate, Aguilera, and before other blond actress babes like Pam Anderson, Heather Graham & Uma Thurman. She must not have played the hollywood game, which I respect (having worked at Paramount Studios for 3 years, I saw the game front row) , or maybe she wasn't liked - who knows. But for our history, she did a great job with Mr. Bond, so kudos to her. Great seeing a bad girl gone good!
