Early appearances on [UK] television by future Bond filmstars

Thanks to the recent release on DVD of ITC's 1957/58 TV adventure series, SWORD OF FREEDOM, Bond lovers have the rare opportunity to glimpse the heartstopping charms of the beautiful 20-year-old Luciana Paluzzi (appearing as Luciana Paoluzzi). In the episode VESPUCCI (broadcast on 28 March 1958), Paluzzi appears as a young native American brought to 16th-century Florence. This television appearance came some seven years before she set the silver screen alight with her performance as Fiona Volpe in THUNDERBALL (1965).
I wonder if other Bondophiles have noticed early TV performances, in the UK and elsewhere, by other fledgling actors and actresses who would eventually achieve cinematic immortality in the James Bond films?

    In one of the episodes in the Hammer's House Of Horror series we see a young Pierce Brosnan in just a minor few scenes. It wasn't his first appearance but certainly one of his first.

    In episodes of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles both a young Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Craig appear.

    Well we certainly can't forget Timothy Dalton being described as "James Bond like" in an episode of Charlies Angels :-D
