Kimberley Jones is an intelligence operative for the British Secret Service. This ally and Bond girl, brought to life by Swedish actress and former Miss World, Mary Stävin, plays a minor role during the pre-title sequence of the 1985 James Bond film A View to a Kill.
After securing a mysterious microchip from the deceased 003 in Siberia, James Bond evades his Soviet pursuers using a miniature submarine disguised as an iceberg.
The craft’s pilot, Kimberley Jones, transmits a signal to M and activates the vessel’s autopilot. Subsequently, she and 007 engage in a romantic escapade as they journey to Alaska over the next five days.
Kimberley Jones is not seen or heard of again after this.
Mary Stävin was born in Sweden in 1957, and won the Miss World in 1977.
