Bond girl Molly Peters, known for her then-scandalous scenes in Thunderball, has died. She was 75.

News of her death was first announced on the official James Bond Twitter account. Her cause of death has not yet been announced.

“We are sad to hear that Molly Peters has passed away at the age of 75. Our thoughts are with her family,” read the tweet.

The British-born actress played Pat, a nurse to Sean Connery’s Bond, in the 1965 film. She became known as the first Bond girl to remove her clothes on screen — and the controversial move caused several scenes to be cut from the film.

Peters’ death comes just over a week after that of Roger Moore, who played the suave secret agent more times than any other actor.

While Thunderball was Peters’ most notable film role, she went on to star in the 1968 feature Don’t Raise the Bridge, Lower the River.
