Honor made her name in The Avengers and played Pussy Galore in the Bond film Goldfinger.
She appears in the first episode of the new series, which starts this Saturday 3rd August.
Casualty executive producer Oliver Kent explained she “plays a fantastically witty and charming character on a mission.
“We’ve had a long history of famous guest appearances but never a Bond girl.”
