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 responsible for every official James Bond film ever produced. Currently she co-produces Bond films with her half brother Michael G. Wilson.
James Bond Franchise
As seems so commonplace in glitzy industries such as movie making, being the son or daughter of a powerful mogul almost guarantees a menu of career opportunities, and as a capable but certainly fortunate young woman, Broccoli started in the Bond franchise at the tender age of 22 as an assistant director on Octopussy in the early 80s. Soon after she had worked her way up further 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."
