Aussie Bond com­ing home for fes­ti­val

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

MOVE aside big merino, the name’s Bond, James Bond.

Af­ter all these years think­ing that the small NSW town of Goul­burn’s only tourist at­trac­tion was a gi­ant ram, they have dis­cov­ered James Bond is one of their own. The only Aus­tralian to play James Bond — ac­tor Ge­orge Lazenby — is to be the guest star at the town’s new fes­ti­val Spyfest on Septem­ber 25- 27. Lazenby was born in Goul­burn in 1939 and went to Goul­burn public and high schools be­fore leav­ing the town aged 15.

Lazenby, who now lives in the US, played Bond in the 1969 clas­sic On Her Majesty’s Se­cret Ser­vice and will fly out for the fes­ti­val.
