Sit down and I will tell you a story or two

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-13257966
Our regular column covering the passing of significant - but lesser-reported - people of the past month.
One of the few certainties about Buster Martin was his ability to tell a good story. The man who was holding down a job at the alleged age of 103 became something of a feature in the British press, helped by his ready wit and his tales of a colourful past. He claimed to have been born in 1906 in France, hence the lack of any birth certificate, and brought up at an orphanage in Cornwall.

Very few people in Zimbabwe dared to challenge the regime of Robert Mugabe, but Mike Campbell became the figurehead of the plight affecting white farmers in the country.

Actress Angela Scoular had the rare distinction of appearing as a Bond girl not just once but twice. Her first 007 role was as Buttercup in the 1966 spoof, Casino Royale, where she got down, but not dirty, in a bath scene with David Niven. Three years later she was bedded by George Lazenby in On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Not that rare...
Maud Adams played Andrea Anders in The Man With The Golden Gun and the title role in Octopussy. She was also uncredited in a crowd scene in A View to A Kill.
Joe Don Baker was also in three Bond movies even though his first character, Brad Whitaker, was killed in The Living Daylights. He went on to play CIA Agent Jack Wade in Goldeneye and Tomorrow Never Dies.
