George Lazenby was born in 1939, in a small Australian town called Goulburn. He moved to London into the swinging late sixties and worked as a car salesman and model before wangling his way in to see the casting director of the new James Bond film. The audition process consisted of George swimming, fighting, riding horseback and kissing Diana Rigg. From nowhere, he was then catapulted into international fame as the new James Bond, where but for the advice of his agent, he would have remained for a further seven films. It is an epic story of rags to riches, extreme hedonism, and some very questionable decisions.
