  • 24 degrees from Sean Connery
  • 26 degrees from Roger Moore
  • 21 degrees from Ian Fleming
  • 21 degrees from Diana Rigg
  • 32 degrees from Harold Sakata
  • 25 degrees from Lois Maxwell
  • 34 degrees from Desmond Llewelyn
  • 22 degrees from John Huston
  • 29 degrees from Bernard Lee

I find it incredibly amusing that, after working so hard to get him connected, I am farthest from Desmond Llewelyn.

I like being (equal) closest to Diana, as I adored her as Emma Peel.  (I even had a comic book (today's graphic novel) I would get every week that included The Avengers in serial form, so I got my Emma Peel "fix" on TV and in my weekly reading.)

Ian Fleming for me, too. 20 degrees.

Here are my degrees for Bond, James Bond:

What is really cool is that Ian Fleming and I are 24th cousins. We share Walter FitzRobert as our common ancestor.

Closest to me is Ian Fleming (18 degrees), followed by Sean Connery (20), John Huston (22) and the late great Lady Diana Rigg (23).  To think, both Diana and Sean have passed away in the last two months.  I guess he couldn't stand to lose his beloved Tracy again (the only Bond girl to get him past the bed and to the altar).

24 degrees from Bernard Lee

24 degrees from Lois Maxwell
