Bond Girls are Easy

Okay kids, no cheating.  Make sure you check out the quiz first!

Which actor has starred in the most Bond films to date?  Robert Llewellyn portrayed 'Q' (or Major Boothroyd) in 17 Bond films, the most appearances by any actor.
Which Bond character has been played by the most actors in the franchise history: M, Ernst Stavro Blofeld or Felix Leiter?  Blofeld was portrayed by nine actors in the history of Bond films, one more than Felix Leiter.
Which of those characters was played by more than one actor in a single film?  Blofeld accomplished his feat in question two by being portrayed by two different actors in Thunderball, From Russia With Love and For Your Eyes Only.
Name two actors to play a different role in a subsequent film than in their original Bond appearance.  (Check the CDS archives for this one, kiddoes!)
Of the many makes and models of car James Bond has driven, and given his history of destroying anything he drives, which car has featured in more films than any other?  The ubiquitous Aston Martin DB5 has made more appearances than any other vehicle in the series.  And she's a beauty.
What children's author wrote the screenplay for one of the film adaptations of Ian Fleming's novels?  Roald Dahl wrote the screenplay for 'You Only Live Twice'.
What non-Bond film did said author screenwrite based on an Ian Fleming story?  Dahl also adapted Fleming's story 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' for film.  This film featured Gert Frobe, best known for his role as Auric Goldfinger, and Benny Hill, best known for his role as Benny Hill (pickle pinger op pate, indeed.)
Which film featured more actors playing Agent 007 than any other?  The non-canonical 1967 'Casino Royale' featured a plethora of actors and actresses billed as 'Agent 007'.
Of those actors, who is the only one to act in one of the 'official' Bond films?  In addition to her appearance in 'Casino Royale', Ursula Andress donned the now-famous white bikini in Dr. No.
Who was the best Bond girl ever?  Discuss.  So many choices here, some far better than others.  I've always been fond of Daniella Bianchi ('From Russia With Love'), Claudine Auger ('Thunderball')  Carole Bouquet ('For Your Eyes Only') and Barbara Bach ('The Spy Who Loved Me').  In the end, as much as I'm drawn to Bianchi's character for her beauty, I love the independence and strength of Bouquet.  In the real end, it's such a part of the genre it seems wrong to exclude any of them.

Except Halle Berry.  I mean, come on.
