One of the Bond Girls, Caroline Cossey, was actually born as Barry Kenneth Cossey. She is now an English model and perhaps most popular for being the first transsexual person to pose for Playboy.
Courtney fought for her right to be legally considered a woman, and triumphed. She began her hormone therapy at 17, and a few years later, had a full sex reassignment surgery. Barry was somewhat feminine growing up, because he had a condition called Klinefelter's syndrome.
People with Klinefelter's usually have two X chromosomes and one Y chromosome. In Cossey's case, he had three X chromosomes instead. He never got along with boys and his closest companion was his sister.
Courtney was cast as an extra in the James Bond film "For Your Eyes Only." The tabloid News of the World responded by doing what they had threatened to for years; revealing that she was transsexual.
This brought her modeling and acting career to a halt until she decided to fight the assault. In 1982, Cossey retaliated with her first auto-biography; I Am a Woman.
