Aristotle Kristatos played by Julian Glover
Born in London, England on 27th March 1935
Starred In For Your Eyes Only (1981)
Bond is introduced to Kristatos through Luigi Ferrara as a 'very reliable' contact. Kristatos attempts to put Bond on the wrong track by attributing all the crimes he commits to his arch-enemy Milos Columbo instead.
Later in the film when Columbo arranges for Bond to be brought to him, he convinces Bond that Kristatos was talking about himself, and that it's him who employs the likes of Emile Leopold Locque and Hector Gonzales.
When Kristatos realises his deception has failed, he unsuccessfully attempts to kill Bond twice whilst recovering the ATAC communicator. After once again failing to kill Bond and Melina Havelock when they return to the surface, they join forces with Columbo and his men to take on Kristatos in the climax of the film. Bond manages to stop Kristatos from selling the ATAC to the Russians, but while he convinces Melina Havelock not to kill Kristatos for the death of her parents, Kristatos pulls out a knife. Noticing the threat Columbo, kills Kristatos by throwing a knife into his back.
Formerly working with Columbo in the Greek resistance against the Nazis, Kristatos is decorated with the King's Medal. Whilst pretending to be loyal to the British, Kristatos is actually a double agent working for the Soviets. Even though Kristatos has no problems assassinating anyone, he strangely becomes emotional when he tells Bond that it would be the happiest day of his life if Bibi Dahl were to win the ice-skating Gold medal. §
