Ursula Andress - Biography






  • Birth name: Ursula Andress
  • Date of birth: 1March 19, 1936
  • Place of birth: Bern, Switzerland
  • Category: Actress
  • Marital Status: John Derek ( actor/director, married in 1957 ) ( divorced ), Harry Hamlin ( divorced )
  • Children: 1 son, Lorenzo Rispoli; father, Harry Hamlin
  • Father: Rolf Andress (diplomat)
  • Mother: Anna Andress
  • Claim to fame: as the first Bond Girl: Honey Rider in Dr. No (1962)
  • Trivial Facts: Andress was discovered by an Italian film producer while on vacation in Rome

    She was paid $10,000 for her role in Dr. No





  • Born (19/3/36) in Bern, Switzerland (of German parents), she started her film career while on holiday in Rome. She later moved to the US (as the 'new Dietrich'), where she got her big break in 1962 as Honey Ryder in the first James Bond movie, Dr. No, with Sean Connery (for which she got $10K). Based on this, she was cast opposite Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin in Four for Texas (1963), and opposite Elvis Presley in Fun in Acapulco (1963).

    Ursula Andress - 1960s She then gave a big boost to her fame (if not her acting career) by posing nude for Playboy; something she has now done three times. She won a Golden Globe award in 1964 for most promising newcomer. She appeared as Ayesha, "She who must be obeyed", in Hammer's She (1965) with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee (among others), but wisely stayed away from the sequel, Vengeance of She. NB: She was offered the Raquel Welch role in 1M Years BC, but turned it down. She was dubbed (as were a lot of other Hammer actresses) in both Dr. No and She.

    Her fame extended through the 60s & 70s as she appeared in essential period capers such as What's New, Pussycat (1965) & Casino Royale (1967).

    She had a string of notorious affairs with her leading men, and was married for about 9 years to well known photographer John Derek (who has made a habit of marrying beautiful women and helping build them up into stars, Bo Derek for example). She lived with actor Harry Hamlin for about 4 years, and has a son (Dimitri) by him.

    She now divides her time between her homes in Rome and the US.
