Position filled

MARY TAMM is...


Lydia Spencer, Agent 799

Thanks for all the suggestions for an actress to play my female James Bond 007 pregen. I decided to go with Mary Tamm because her protrayal of Romana on Dr. Who reflected exactly what I was looking for in this character: slightly snobbish but amazingly competent, with a razor sharp dry wit. I'll admit that I toyed with the idea of giving this character a silly Bond Girl name. But she's not a Bond Girl, is she? This character is a full-fledged MI6 agent like the rest of the PCs and saddling her with a name like Chastity Naughtybottom would be completely unfair.
