Angela Scoular played a happy-go-lucky bed mate for James Bond in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. In fact, her later years were marred by a myriad of personal problems.
James Bond fans lovingly recall actress Angela Scoular for her performance as Ruby, the air-headed but sexually insatiable girl bedded by James Bond (George Lazenby) in the 1969 007 classic On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Scoular died in April and a British coroner has revealed that Scoular's life and death were tragic in every way. Dispelling rumors that Scoular had committed suicide, the coroner ruled that she actually died from drinking a corrosive liquid cleaning agent that scalded her throat. She was deemed to have been in mental disarray when the action occurred. Scoular was facing numerous demons in her life including alcoholism, a battle with bowel cancer, depression and financial problems. She was married to British actor Leslie Phillips.
