She says: 'Trench, Sylvia Trench. "She will be very much missed", read a statement on her Twitter account, as James Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli also expressed their condolences.

As well as appearing in Dr No. the actress was also in 163 film From Russia With Love. "We went back on set and he said the name "Bond, James Bond" in a lovely way". Trench had been due to be a recurring character, but the idea was dropped by the director of Goldfinger, Guy Hamilton.

Gayson, born in Surrey, England in 1928, had a 60-year career on stage and screen that began in the late 1940s. A striking presence, Gayson's voice was nevertheless dubbed over by another actress in both films.

Before her performance in the James Bond films, Gayson appeared in 1958's The Revenge of Frankenstein, Hammer Films' second horror installment featuring Mary Shelley's titular monster.
