1949 – present
In her 1973 role as Bond Girl Rosie Carver in “Live and Let Die,” Hendry became the first Black
American woman romantically involved with Agent 007. When “Live and Let Die” was released in
South Africa, her love scenes with Roger Moore were censored out by the apartheid
government. Hendry went on to play in several 1970s blaxploitation films including “Black
Caesar” and “Hell Up in Harlem” and action pics such as “Black Belt Jones,” “Savage Sisters,”
and “Bare Knuckles.” All together, Hendry has 28 screen-acting credits that span the years from
1968 to the present.
