Born September 5th, 1939 in Goulbourn, Australia, George Lazenby came to Britain in his early manhood and rose to the top of the male modeling world and with no acting experience whatsoever. He auditioned for the part every actor in the world was dying for, and to the envy of many, was was chosen to replace Connery as Bond in On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1969.
So the Australian model-turned-Bond only played him in one movie - arguably the best of Fleming's novels. He played the role of James Bond with enthusiasm and skill. Once coupled with the fact that he had no previous experience, you must congratulate Lazenby on being a perfectly adequate replacement to the legendary Connery.
In his post-Bond career, Lazenby acted in a few TV movies and in the early 90's had some minor parts in mainstream movies. On the whole though, his foolish decision to dump 007 after one movie was a regrettable and almost career-destroying one.
