Biography

Born in London to a Dutch father and Georgian mother, Maryam grew up in Paris and Geneva. She is cousin of singer Mike d’Abo and second cousin of his daughter Olivia d’Abo.

Entering the film business in 1983 with Xtro, Maryam swiftly clocked up credits in productions including Master Of The Game (mini-series), Until September, White Nights and Out Of Africa before becoming involved in the screen tests of a new James Bond for The Living Daylights – recreating a scene from the film From Russia With Love with would-be 007s.

So impressed were the producers and director, that they decided Maryam was perfect casting for the role of Kara Milovy.

Since her time as a Bond girl she has worked continuously in film and television, including: Leon The Pig Farmer, Solitaire For Two, The Browning Version, Doctor Zhivago (mini-series) and Helen Of Troy. She also guest starred in episodes of Murder She Wrote, Tales From The Crypt and Space Precinct.
