Maryam d’Abo’s

TV come­back of­fers a poignant ex­pla­na­tion of why she’s been off our screens. The for­mer Bond girl suf­fered a brain haem­or­rhage in 2007 and only now is she well enough to talk about her road to re­cov­ery. In Rup­ture: Liv­ing With My Bro­ken Brain, Maryam, 51 (left), says, ‘It’s been a very chal­leng­ing five years but I hope the film of­fers a sense of hope to those af­fected by brain dis­ease and in­jury.’ Lon­don-born Maryam shot to fame as Kara Milovy in the 1987 Bond movie The Liv­ing Day­lights (right). Her last big role for Bri­tish TV was as Amalia Guishar in ITV’s drama Dr Zhivago in 2002. She’ll also guest star in the ITV thriller Thir­teen Steps Down later this year. Rup­ture: Liv­ing With My Bro­ken Brain, Thurs­day, 10pm, BBC4.
