Her real name just wouldn't do for a marquee in the Bible Belt, so Canadian-born actress Lois Hooker became Lois Maxwell when she arrived in Hollywood. Maxwell appeared in one British picture and a handful of American programmers before she sought out better opportunities in the Italian film industry. She returned to Britain as a second lead and character actress in 1956. In 1970, Maxwell co-starred in the Canadian TV series Adventures in Rainbow County. Lois Maxwell is best remembered for her appearances as the coolly efficient, subtly predatory Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond films produced between 1962 and 1985 — at least until she was unceremoniously dumped in favor of a younger actress for the two Timothy Dalton "Bond" epics of the late 1980s.
In 1949, when she was getting started in Hollywood, Maxwell was among eight starlets who were asked to pose for a picture in Life magazine. In addition to Maxwell, there was another starlet who would go on to bigger things, Marilyn Monroe.
Close friend of 'James Bond' co-star, Roger Moore.
