Magda (Kristina Wayborn)
Magda played by Kristina Wayborn
Born in Kalmar, Sweden in 1954
Starred In Octopussy (1983)
Magda appears again when Bond travels to India. Whilst in the hotel casino Bond offers Magda a drink, but she declines. It is not until Bond makes it clear that he has the real egg, does he find Magda waiting for a romantic dinner at his hotel. Magda steals the egg the next morning after seducing Bond, a plan 007 allows, so he can follow its location.
Later in the film she is present when Bond is held captive at the Monsoon Palace and aboard the Octopussy circus train. When she learns of Kamal Khan's deception, she plays a vital part in the attack on his palace at the end of the film.
Magda is a gorgeous blond who simmers with sexuality. Part of Octopussy's cult, she is sent to seduce Bond to recover the Fabergé egg, something she does with ease. Extremely athletic and intelligent, Magda is also an expert pick-pocket a talent used in Octopussy's circus whilst the main acts are running.
Kristina Wayborn is excellent as Magda, especially when her athletic prowess is demonstrated at the end of the film. §
