Gloria Hendry (b. March 3, 1949, Winter Haven, Florida) is an African-American actress. She is sometimes credited as "Gloria Henry."

Career

Hendry began her acting career in the 1968 Sidney Poitier film For Love of Ivy.

She is perhaps best known for portraying the Bond girl, Rosie Carver in the James Bond film Live and Let Die. In that film, she became the first African American woman to become romantically involved with 007. She is not, however, the first African-American Bond girl; that title went to Trina Parks. When the film was first released in South Africa, her love scenes with Roger Moore were cut out because it was prohibited by the Apartheid government.

She later starred in several 1970s blaxploitation films, including the 1973 film Black Caesar and its sequel, the 1974 film Hell Up in Harlem. She also portrayed the martial arts expert, Sydney, in Black Belt Jones.
