Born in Goulburn, Australia in 1939, George Lazenby’s peripatetic life led him to London and international stardom as Ian Fleming’s James Bond in On Her Majesty’s Service (1969), taking over from Sean Connery. Although a worldwide critical and financial success, George forsook the role of 007 to carve out his own spiritual adventure in life in the Far East and the United States, working with filmmakers as varied as Peter Bogdanovitch, Cy Endfield, John Landis and and Raymond Chow.
Still much in demand on TV and film, Lazenby starred as Civil War General J Johnson Pettigrew in Gettysburg (1993) and in Superboy (2000) as Superman’s father, Jor-El, a role initially essayed by Marlon Brando.
Recent work includes a voice role in DC’s Batman Beyond animated series, Jim Jefferies’ father in Legit (2014) and in critically acclaimed independent films such as A Winter Rose (2016) directed by Riz Story and Death Game (2017) directed by Gregory Hatanaka.
In 2019, Lazenby returned to serve MI6 as Australian agent Dr Jason Love in the audio adaptation of James Leasor’s Passport to Oblivion. Directed by Barnaby Eaton-Jones for award-winning company Spiteful Puppet, the production also starred Terence Stamp.
George was the 2019 recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from CineFest Miskolc International Film Festival in Hungary. He shared this honour with director Bille August. George is currently based in Los Angeles.
