Miss Penelope Smallbone played by Michaela Clavell appears only in Octopussy. Bond is treated to a delight when he sees the beautiful Miss Penelope Smallbone, Moneypenny's new assistant.
He amusingly covers his interests in Miss Smallbone by not too convincingly telling Moneypenny how beautiful she is also.
Miss Penelope Smallbone was originally intended to replace Lois Maxwell, and thus is introduced to audiences in Octopussy. A very beautiful charming woman, Miss Smallbone is clearly taken in by the charms of Bond and is left wanting more. Sadly, the character does not appear again, with Miss Moneypenny sadly leaving also in A View To A Kill. §
