Have any actors played multiple James Bond characters (not different Bonds)?

As of my last update in January 2022, no actor has played multiple distinct characters within the official James Bond film series. Each actor who has portrayed James Bond—Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig—has only played the role of James Bond himself and not any other characters within the same series.

However, there are instances where actors have played different roles in different James Bond films. For example:

Maud Adams appeared as Andrea Anders in “The Man with the Golden Gun” (1974) and later as the title character Octopussy in “Octopussy” (1983).

Joe Don Baker played the villain Brad Whitaker in “The Living Daylights” (1987) and later appeared as CIA agent Jack Wade in “GoldenEye” (1995) and “Tomorrow Never Dies” (1997).

Charles Gray portrayed Henderson in “You Only Live Twice” (1967) and later played Blofeld in “Diamonds Are Forever” (1971).

These actors played different roles in different films, but they never played multiple characters within the same film.

It’s worth noting that the James Bond series has had a long history and has been subject to various reboots and reinterpretations. Therefore, while the same character (like M or Q) may appear across multiple films, they are sometimes reimagined and played by different actors due to the series’ evolving nature.

In summary, while some actors have appeared in multiple James Bond films in different roles, no actor has played multiple distinct characters within a single James Bond film in the official series.
