According to TMZ, after Tanya returned home from a walk with her dogs, she “collapsed,” and was soon “taken to a hospital.”
Her rep told the outlet that the legendary star was “put on a ventilator, but never got better,” as she passed away at a hospital in California.
She once said of her memorable turn as a Bond girl: “At the time I didn’t know what I know now, and to be honest, who would turn that role down, really?
“Nobody would. All you have to think to yourself is, ‘Could I have been better in the part?’ That’s all you can say to yourself because turning the part down would have been ridiculous, you know? I mean nobody would do that, nobody.”
