Gloria Hendry was born in Florida and raised in Newark, New Jersey. Her first job was as an assistant to the legal secretary in the New York officie of the NAACP. She also became a model around this time and worked at the Playboy Club as a "Bunny." This exposure led to her being cast in her first movie, For the Love of Ivy (1968).

In the 1970s she became a popular star of black actioners such as Black Caesar (1973) and Black Belt Jones (1974).

Between these two assignments, she was cast by Guy Hamilton as Rosie Carver in Live And Let Die, and became the first African American Bond girl. Alas, she was killed for betraying 007 (Roger Moore) to Dr Kanaga (Yaphet Kotto).

Gloria continued to work extensively in both tv and film post-Bond. TV credits includ Hunter, The Brady Brides and her film work encompasses Bare Knuckles (1978), Pumpkinhead II (1994) and Looking Italian (1998)

She has completed her first CD and also produced The Paul Robeson Story.
