Feel free to update this listing!
Btw here's some rare reels containing the title shoots for Goldeneye:

    Impressive list, @AI2I. A couple of my initial thoughts (SF, others) checked out.

    For updates I suggest you edit your original post to keep the list complete, using the little gear icon upper right.


    You could consider DAD and the performer known as Sarilya/Sarllya Tyi/Tymarah for the Scorpion Guard that transitions from the film to the titles.

    Got it. In fact you've just reminded me of another actress that I forgot to post on DAD, which I've already updated.

    Thanks @AI2I. This is an impressive level of research. As I stated in another thread, someone should interview them to get their recollections on what these sessions were like. ^:)^

    PS. OHMSS??

    A couple items to note.

    LTK where you mention Diane Lee-Hsu, she has among the clearest (and surely most total number of) appearances in the titles shown below in addition to your descriptions of dancing, etc. And appears in the film as character Loti: SHE'S HONG KONG NARCOTICS!

    TMWTGG: also for consideration, Wei Wei Wong is uncredited but reportedly appears in the titles opening, then after. Plus as the Bottoms Up Girl in the film.

    The Spy Who Loved Me
    Anna Noble (Brunette, One of the girls with a gun)
    Carolyn Cheshire (Blonde, Another girl with a gun, also later appears in The Man With The Golden Gun as the dancing girl with the sparking red background)
    Perri Small (Penelope Smallbone, possibly the blonde holding the Tommy gun)

    What I want to know is : Who's the gymnast ? Because she certainly has talent (and her inclusion was probably due to the 1976 Olympics where Nadia Comaneci brought gymnastics on the forefront.

    Oh, and CR '06 has one woman : Eva Green, as the queen of hearts. Blink and you'll miss her.

    You Only Live Twice
    Sylvana Henriques (Silhouette fan dancer)
    Mai Ling ( Japanese girl with traditional geisha hair)

    Sylvana Henriques. Looking it up, as stated she appears in the YOLT titles (Japanese Fan Dancer, silhouette) and also in OHMSS (as The Jamaican Girl). Successful model of the day with credits in Kaleidoscope, Deadlier Than the Male. Active at Bond-related gatherings as happen at Piz Gloria.

    IMDb also suggests: Kiyomi Kobayashi (as Title Geisha).

    Hey guys, been awhile. I did some digging again and I found out who was with Charlotte Edwards during the Skyfall titles given her name was a clue and she's blonde. Her name's Natasha Lambelin, and both of them were very likely the negative/mirrored dancers in the middle of the sequence. It's been updated.
