Bond girl Maryam d’Abo: Life after Bond and a terrifying near-death collapse | Films | Entertainment

d’Abo was born in London but raised in Paris and Geneva, and had worked on French television and stage before starring in The Living Daylights.

Afterward, she took roles in various sci-fi and horror shows and films like Something Is Out There, Timelock and Tales From The Crypt. More mainstream roles included 2002’s Doctor Zhivago with Keira Knightley and 2003 mini-series Helen of Troy.

But in 2007, her whole life was changed after she collapsed in Los Angeles with terrible pains in her head, “like an electrical thunderstorm… I was drifting in and out of consciousness. I was diagnosed with a subarachnoid bleed from an aneurysm and was within a few hours of death.”
