About Samantha Bond

As the daughter of an actor, Phillip Bond and a television producer Pat Sandys, Samantha Bond was destined to make a career as an actor herself. She trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and became a founder member of Kenneth Branagh’s touring theatre company in the 1980s. She played a formidable Beatrice to his Benedick in the 1986 production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing directed by Judi Dench. She has worked extensively with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal National Theatre, gaining particular acclaim for her role in David Hare’s Amy’s View this time acting opposite Dench. When the play transferred to Broadway in 1999 she was nominated for a Tony award.

Her television work has included the 1997 adaptation of Austen’s Emma but she is of course most widely known for her role as Miss Moneypenny in the Bond series of films.

Lady Chatterley's Lover Audiobook

Lady Chatterley's Lover Audiobook
Written by D H Lawrence
Read by Samantha Bond

This unabridged audio book tells the story of Lady Chatterley and her love for her husband’s gamekeeper and when first published, it outraged the sensibilities of Edwardian England.

D.H. Lawrence had already been dismissed as a purveyor of the obscene for the attitudes to sex that he had shown in 'The Rainbow' which had been fiercely suppressed on its publication in 1915. Chatterley was a deliberate choice on D H Lawrence’s part to address sex head on, describe the act and its pleasures in detail and put forward his belief that mankind had lost touch with its pagan and natural root, its link to the earth and therefore its strength. Lawrentian sex although tender and loving is feral and robust. He despised what he called “the miserable sodding rutters, the flaming sods, the sniveling, dribbling, dithering, palsied, pulse-less lot that make up England today”.

Samantha Bond reads Lady Chatterley's Lover audiobook, in her truely engrossing style.
