According to the BBC, Gayson helped steady a nervous Connery so he could deliver his signature phrase -- "Bond. James Bond" -- for the first time.
Meeting 007 over cards at the Le Cercle Club casino, she suggests raising the stakes. Bond replies: "I admire your courage, Miss, er... ?"
"Trench, Sylvia Trench. I admire your luck, Mr... ?"
“Bond. James Bond."
In 2012, Gayson said that Connery “had to say Bond, James Bond, but he came out with other permutations like Sean Bond, James Connery. 'Cut! Cut! Cut!’” the BBC reported.
At the suggestion of director Terence Young, Gayson took Connery for a drink, and he returned to deliver the line perfectly, the BBC reported.
Gayson reprised her role in the second James Bond movie, “From Russia With Love," in 1963.
Gayson appeared in "The Revenge of Frankenstein" in 1958, and also was in television series such as "The Saint" and "The Avengers," CNN reported.
