At the start of the film Miss Anders is seen with Scaramanga on his private island. After the pre-title sequence, the plot for the story becomes clear. James Bond has been sent a note from Francisco Scaramanga, a famous assassin, with a golden bullet engraved with 007. As the plot unfolds it becomes clear that Miss Anders sent the note and the bullet, hoping Bond would come and eventually kill Scaramanga.
Following the trail of the bullets, Bond follows Miss Anders back to her hotel where after confronting her, he manages to find out where Scaramanga is next appearing. Miss Anders later meets Bond again in his hotel room. After Bond beds her, he agrees to kill Scaramanga in exchange for the Solex Agitator. The next morning when Bond meets Miss Anders for the Solex, she has already been killed by Scaramanga after he discovers her deceit.
Andrea Anders is Scaramangas mistress. She is in a similar position to that of Dominique Derval in Thunderball.
Scaramanga sleeps with her just before each kill, as he says it improves his aim. However it seems that she will do anything to escape Scaramangas clutches, since she risks her life in getting Bond to track down Scaramanga and kill him.
A resourceful and intelligent woman, Miss Anders is killed by Scaramanga whilst bringing Bond the Solex for her betrayal.
Maud Adams also plays the part of Octopussy in Octopussy. §
