Irka Bochenko was born in Poland, but moved to Paris with her family when she was 6. From the tender age of 3 Irka could be found singing at any opportunity and at age 14 she began writing her own songs and melodies; a skill that has never left her.
After completing her education Irka began her career as a model in Paris, New York and Tokyo and was subsequently cast in a French film (Bilitis) and TV drama (L'inspecteur mène l'enquête) in 1977 and 1978; around the time Lewis Gilbert began casting for Moonraker. Following a successful audition, Irka secured the role of one of Drax’s evil henchwomen – though admittedly they were all extremely attractive henchwomen – and tried to lead 007 to his death at the hands of a nasty snake and metal-teeth wielding bad guy Jaws.
As well as continuing to star in French TV dramas, Irka has carved out a very successful second career as singer Iren Bo as well - as well as composer and musician too.
Her current project has a flavour of 007 and will be released to tie in with the series’ 50th anniversary.
