Barbara Broccoli

Barbara Broccoli (born June 18, 1960) is the daughter of the famous James Bond producer Albert R. Broccoli. Broccoli majored in motion picture and television communications at Loyola University prior to working in the casting and production departments at EON Productions, the production company responsibile for every official James Bond film ever produced. Currently she co-produces Bond films with her stepbrother Michael G. Wilson.

James Bond Franchise

Barbara Broccoli got her start in the the James Bond franchise as an assistant director on the movie Octopussy. In 1987 she worked her way up to become an associate producer on the film The Living Daylights. She is most notable, however, for being a producer of the Pierce Brosnan Bond films.

Following a suggestion that the new M for Goldeneye should be a woman, Broccoli cast Judi Dench. This arguably risky move has proved very successful, allowing new character traits of the Bond character to be explored. Dench's character tells Bond "I think you're a sexist, misogynist dinosaur. A relic of the Cold War."
