Honor Blackman (born 22 August 1925) is an English actress.

She's best known as the James Bond girl Pussy Galore in Goldfinger (the earliest-born actress to have played a Bond girl and the oldest still living at that, actually). Before that, she was known for playing leather-clad Action Girl Dr. Catherine "Cathy" Gale, the first female partner to John Steed (Patrick Macnee) in The Avengers from 1962 to 1964. She was then overshadowed by her successor, Emma Peel, played by Diana Rigg.

She also played Julia Daggett in Shalako, Greek goddess Hera in Jason and the Argonauts, Laura West in the ITV sitcom The Upper Hand, Penny Husbands-Bosworth in Bridget Jones' Diary and Peggy in Cockneys vs. Zombies.
