Modesty Blaise (1966 film) – Cast

      • Monica Vitti as Modesty Blaise, a criminal mastermind with a love-hate relationship with the British Secret Service, who occasionally employ her and grant her immunity due to her immense talents.
      • Terence Stamp as Willie Garvin, Modesty’s loyal Cockney sidekick with whom she has a „will they or won’t they“ relationship that ends in mutual (possibly sarcastic) marriage proposals. Their relationship differs from the source material, where it is purely platonic.
      • Dirk Bogarde as Gabriel, another criminal mastermind and Modesty’s equal, defined by camp mannerisms and a sensitivity to violence in spite of his ruthlessness.
      • Harry Andrews as Sir Gerald Tarrant, the chief of the British Secret Service who has a begrudging respect for Modesty and acts as her liaison to the government.
      • Michael Craig as Paul Hagen, a straight-laced agent of the British Secret Service and former lover of Modesty’s. He is an original character created for the film.
      • Clive Revill as McWhirter & Sheik Abu Tahir, the former is Gabriel’s loyal and dogged Scottish accountant, and the latter is the once-deposed ruler of a small Middle Eastern kingdom and the informal foster father of Modesty, whom he calls his ’son‘. The latter character takes the role of Modesty’s mentor „Lob“ from the original comics, and is otherwise an original character.
      • Alexander Knox as The Minister, an anxious government bureaucrat tasked with protecting the Sheikh’s diamonds, a task is largely unsuited to and leaves to his subordinates.
      • Rossella Falk as Mrs. Clara Fothergill (credited as Rosella Falk), Gabriel’s Amazonian bodyguard and chief of security, a psychopath who enjoys killing people to cure her boredom. She is an original character created for the film.
      • Tina Aumont as Nicole (credited as Tina Marquand), Willie’s old flame now working as a magician’s assistant in Amsterdam. She becomes embroiled in her former lover’s schemes due to her employer’s connections to Gabriel. She is an original character created for the film.
