Characters specific to ''Film/DiamondsAreForever''. For those in the entire [[Film/JamesBond film franchise]], see [[Characters/JamesBond here]].

!'''Tiffany Case'''
->Played by: '''Jill St. John'''

An American diamond smuggler and thief whom 007 blackmails into helping him. She frequently finds herself bewildered by the web of lies and oddities that 007 weaves around her.

After her HeelFaceTurn, she blunders around so embarrassingly that both Bond and Blofeld make snide comments on [[WhatAnIdiot what an idiot she is.]]

* {{Soft Spoken Sadist}}s
* SissyVillain: Mr. Wint.
