George Lazenby Net Worth: George Lazenby is an Australian actor and former model who has a net worth of $100 million. Born George Robert Lazenby on September 5, 1939, in Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia, he enjoyed worldwide fame for portraying James Bond in the 1969 film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Prior to becoming the now "forgotten Bond," George Lazenby was the highest-paid model in the world throughout the 1960?s. He had the chance to reprise the iconic film role of superspy 007, Diamonds Are Forever in 1971, after which Roger Moore took over the part. Even though he performed in other films like Kentucky Fried Movie (1974), Master Ninja II (1984) and Fatally Yours (1995, with Roddy McDowall), Lazenby's acting career never flourished. Eventually, he turned to business and real estate investments that earned him spacious mansions in Hawaii, Brentwood, California, Australia, a ranch estate in Valyermo, California, as well as a port-side penthouse apartment in Hong Kong and an estate home in Maryland. As for his personal life, it includes two marriages and four children, one with his first wife Christina Gannett Lazenby and three with his second one, former tennis player Pam Shriver. Today, Lazenby enjoys practicing his numerous hobbies like sailing, motorcycle racing, car racing, reading, watching movies, and of course, playing golf and tennis.
George Robert Lazenby /??le??z??nbi/ (born 5 September 1939) is an Australian actor and former model, best known for portraying James Bond in the 1969 film On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Lazenby was born in Goulburn, New South Wales, at Ovada Private Hospital, to railway worker George Edward Lazenby and Sheila Joan Lazenby (n?(C)e Bodel), who worked at Fosseys. He went to Bourke Street School in his primary years, and Goulburn High until either 1953 or 1954. His sister, Barbara, was an accomplished dancer. When he was young he spent 18 months in hospital after having an operation which left him with only half a kidney.
When Lazenby was about 13 he moved with his family from Goulburn to Queanbeyan, where his father ran a store. He worked as a car salesman and mechanic, before serving in the Australian Army. He moved to London in 1963.
Lazenby became a used car salesman in Finchley, then sold new cars in Park Lane. He was spotted by a talent scout who persuaded him to become a model, and he was soon earning ???25,000 a year. He was best known for an advertisement for Big Fry Chocolate.
In 1968, after Sean Connery quit the role of James Bond, producer Albert R. Broccoli first met Lazenby when getting their hair cut at the same barber. He later saw him in the Big Fry commercial and felt he could be a possible Bond, calling him in for a screen test.
Lazenby dressed for the part by sporting several sartorial Bond elements such as a Rolex Submariner wristwatch and a Savile Row suit (ordered, but uncollected, by Connery). Broccoli offered him an audition. The position was consolidated when Lazenby accidentally punched a professional wrestler, who was acting as stunt coordinator, in the face, impressing Broccoli with his ability to display aggression. Lazenby won the role based on a screen-test fight scene, the strength of his interviews, fight skills and audition footage. Director Peter R. Hunt later claimed:
During the production of the film, Lazenby's
