Former Bond actress murdered after disturbing intruder at her luxury home

December 16, 2008

Ireland (ChattahBox) — A former Bond girl Celine Cawley, 46, who went on to become an award-winning advertising executive and film-maker, was found with serious head injuries on the patio of her multi-million pound family home yesterday morning. Cawley was allegedly bludgeoned to death after disturbing an intruder at her home in an exclusive area of north Dublin.

The husband Eamonn Lillis, claims he had been out walking the dogs at the time, and told police he arrived back at their home in Howth, when he saw a masked raider fleeing. Cawley received first aid but died an hour later in Beaumont Hospital. The couple have a 16-year-old daughter who was in school at the time of the killing. Detectives said they were keeping a ‘very open mind’ on the investigation. There was no sign of a break-in and the murder weapon has not been recovered.

Ms Cawley played a party girl in the 1985 James Bond film A View To A Kill which starred Roger Moore. She was well known in media and advertising circles in Ireland after building her Toytown Films company into one of the country’s most high profile production houses.

Update:  I kind of thought this might be the case based on the circumstances.  The husband has been charged today (12-22-08) with murdering Celine Cawley in their exclusive north Dublin home a week ago.
