As the first American to play a Bond girl, Jill St. John cemented her place in film history with her turn as Tiffany Case in Diamonds are Forever (1971). But St. John was a well-known actress before Bond, and her career continued long afterward -- her list of co-stars, in addition to Sean Connery, runs the gamut from Jerry Lewis to Dean Martin to Robert Wagner, and even Adam West, TV's Batman. St. John has been in the business since she was child, and she even popped up on Seinfeld in the ‘90s. Few Bond Girls can boast the longevity of Jill St. John.
