InStyle.com, inspired by the recent arrest of real-life arrest of Russian spies, came up with its on-screen women spies.
Coming in at No. 1 was Major Anya Asamova, aka Agent Triple-X from 1977’s The Spy Who Loved Me. As portrayed by Barbara Bach, Triple-X was James Bond’s equal as a secret agent and was part of the reason the 1977 film helped revive the 007 film franchise, which had shown signs of slumping.
At No. 7 was Vesper Lynd, as played by Eva Green from 2006’s Casino Royale. Also of note was The Avenger’s Emma Peel at No. 2, with InStyle using photos of both Diana Rigg, the television original, and Uma Thurman, the movie version.
