Famke Janssen was wildly successful as a Dutch model, and eventually moved to New York and evolved into an actress. Her first prominent role was as the Bond girl Xenia Onatopp in GoldenEye (1995). She has been molded into action figures based on her Xenia character in GoldenEye, and as Dr. Jean Grey in the X-Men movies.
