Mollie Peters (born 1942 in Walsham-le-Willows, Suffolk, England) is an English actress. She appeared in only three films during the 1960s. Her best-known appearance was the role of Bond girl, Patricia Fearing or Pat, a nurse who takes care of James Bond (Sean Connery) while he's on vacation at her health clinic in Thunderball (1965). Molly was the first Bond girl to be seen taking her clothes off on screen in the Bond series.

Peters appeared in Playboy, in the November 1965 issue. Her appearance was as part of a pictorial essay entitled "James Bond's Girls", by Richard Maibaum.

Peters started out as a model and she was discovered by director Terence Young. According to the special edition DVD of Thunderball, Peters' short film career was the result of a disagreement between her and her agent, the specifics of which have not been revealed.

According to Peters, her agent at the time of "Thunderball" held her to her contract agreement of representation due to the Mega-Successful Box-Office hit of the fourth James Bond film in 1965.

Not until many years later, when the fame, glamour and the chaos had fade from the release of "Thunderball", her contractual agreement had ended and so had any modelling and/or film prospects for Mollie Peters.

Peters later married and gave birth to son.

In 2011, Peters suffered a mild stroke.

As of 2014 Mollie Peters currently lives in Ipswich, England.
