Max Clifford lunged at me, Bond girl claims

Jennifer Cockerell

An extra in a James Bond film has told a court she kicked publicist Max Clifford between the legs when he allegedly "lunged" at her after promising he could get her a role alongside Charles Bronson.

The woman, one of seven alleged victims of indecent assault by Clifford, told London's Southwark Crown Court she was about 20 when Clifford suggested he become her agent after she landed a minor part in Octopussy.

Jurors also heard evidence from the film's executive assistant, Barbara Broccoli, who denied that her father, Bond producer Cubby Broccoli, ever met Clifford.

Earlier the alleged victim described how she was "very frightened" and "screamed" at Clifford to leave her alone after he allegedly forced himself on her in his Bond Street office.

The woman, now 52, said Clifford told her he would make her famous but needed some photographs of her in lingerie first.

Clifford, from Hersham in Surrey, is accused of 11 counts of indecent assault against seven women and girls.

He denies all the charges.

The trial continues.
