Honor Blackman to star 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."

Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
