Honor Blackman to star in Casualty

Salisbury Journal: Honor Blackman has a guest role in Casualty Honor Blackman has a guest role in Casualty

Honor Blackman is set to make a guest appearance in Casualty playing a feisty pensioner on a mission.

The star, who made her name in The Avengers and played Bond Girl Pussy Galore in Goldfinger, ends up in hospital after being hit by a cyclist and begins to reveal details of her life including a stint driving ambulances in African warzones.

Her appearance in Saturday's episode of the long-running BBC medical drama coincides with the introduction of a new character, a trainee doctor called Lily Chao, played by Crystal Yu.

The second episode of the new series will see the introduction of another new character, a nurse called Rita Freeman, played by Chloe Howman, who is the daughter of Brush Strokes star Karl Howman.

Executive producer Oliver Kent said: "We've had a long history of famous guest appearances, but never a Bond girl. Honor plays a fantastically witty and charming character on a mission. Meanwhile, our two new regular characters, Lily and Rita hit the ground running and are set to create a stir in the ED."
