Lois Maxwell (born Lois Hooker on 14 February 1927 in Kitchener, Ontario) is a Canadian actress, best known for her role as Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond franchise.
Maxwell has also appeared in many other television series and movies both in Britain and Canada, and was the star of Adventures in Rainbow Country in the late 1960s. Lois lived in Espanola, Ontario for 18 years, close by to where the series was filmed. She guest starred in episodes of the The Saint and The Persuaders! which both starred Roger Moore.
She also provided the voice of Atlanta for the science fiction children's series Stingray in 1963. In the 1970s, she wrote a popular newspaper column for the Toronto Sun.
In the late 1940s, Maxwell attempted to make a name for herself as a starlet in Hollywood; she participated in a Life Magazine photo layout in which she posed with another up-and-coming actress named Marilyn Monroe. She appeared in Bedtime for Bonzo with Ronald Reagan, whom she declared (in an interview with Hello! magazine) she had found very handsome and attractive.
She lives in Perth, Western Australia.
