Biography

Sutton was the granddaughter of an oil tycoon in California. After her grandfather's death, Sutton oil was taken over by billionaire Max Zorin, who gave Sutton a cheque for $5,000,000 for her shares in the company, although she never cashed it. Stacey lives on the estate her grandfather left for her - Dunsmuir House. Because of her protracted fight against Zorin the mansion is empty as she has had to sell the furniture inside to keep going.

She first appears at Max Zorin's mansion near Paris, where he is holding a high prestige horse sale. They are there for completely different reasons, but meet after Bond suspects foul play when he eavesdrops on Zorin writing her a cheque for $5million.

After losing the company to Zorin, she became a geologist for the state of California and worked at San Francisco City Hall. James Bond eventually discovered that Zorin was pumping sea water into oil wells to flood the Hayward and San Andreas faults in order to create a double earthquake that would submerge Silicon Valley.

Sutton and Bond are in San Francisco City Hall when they are cornered by Zorin and Mayday, who set fire to the building after killing an official and chased Sutton and Bond into a lift, dropping a petrol bomb on it after causing it to malfunction. However, Sutton and Bond manage to escape the burning building down the ladder of a fire engine, with Sutton driving Bond away from police officers who suspected him of killing the official - just as Zorin had wanted.

He and Sutton then teamed up to stop Zorin from destroying Silicon Valley. Bond and Sutton team up to stop Zorin at his mines. Zorin detonates the mine with the first set of explosive, thus causing a big flood. In the meantime, Zorin's former girlfriend Mayday changes sides and helps Bond remove the detonators for the second explosion, moving it clear of the mines just in time before it explodes and kills her under the eyes of Zorin.

Sutton luckily avoids the explosion, only to be snatched by a furious Max Zorin on his airship. Bond, however, grabs a manrope and clings on to it as the airship heads for the Golden Gate Bridge. Zorin attempts to kill Bond by flying into the Golden Gate Bridge, but he managed to moor the manrope to the bridge's framework and halt it. During the final battle, Sutton knocks out Scarpine and takes care of Hans Glaub on one of Zorin's blimps. Sutton reunites with Bond after Bond knocked Zorin off the Golden Gate Bridge. Glaub attempts to avenge Zorin's death by trying to elmininating the two with a stick of dynamite, but Bond cuts the ropes and the dynamite explodes inside the airship, killing Glaud and Scarpine when it detonates. Stacey and Bond then make their escape.

Stacey and Bond are found personally by MI6 in the shower having sex at her house. She recently must have reclaimed her belongings after Zorin's death as evident in the scene where Q bounty hunts the two lovers.

The film ends with Stacey moaning "Oh, James..." as they proceed to make love and then they crouch down lower until they are out of sight (suggesting that they have laid down in the tub to continue having sex).
