Margaret Nolan, also known as Vicky Kennedy, (born 29 October 1943) is a British artist and a former actress and glamour model.


Born in Hampstead, London to Irish parents, Margaret Nolan adopted the name Vicky Kennedy while working in the ‘glamour’ scene during the early 1960s. Her best glamour photo modelling work was with Harrison Marks in Kamera and other magazines.She later reverted to her birth name of Margaret Nolan and appeared in a number of television and film roles, including A Hard Day’s Night with The Beatles and the James Bond film Goldfinger in the small role of Dink, Bond’s masseuse, and several 1970s Carry On films, most sizably Carry on Girls. She also appeared in straight theatre, becoming interested in political themes, and acted in one of the first episodes of police drama The Sweeney.In Goldfinger, it was actually her body painted with gold in the titles and advertisements, not Shirley Eaton‘s as in the narrative of the film. She also appeared in Playboy magazine following her appearance in Goldfinger in 1965. The internet sneeze.gif, where a woman in a one-piece swim suit sneezes and busts open two buttons on her outfit (revealing most of her breasts) is Nolan in Carry On Girls.In a rare interview with Den of Geek,[1] Nolan talked about moving away from England to Spain and becoming an artist. She currently lives there with her husband and two sons. Nolan’s artwork, which mostly consists of photomontages constructed from her old headshots, can be viewed at her official website.
