Carey Lowell

Carey Lowell (born February 11, 1961 in Huntington, New York) is an American actress and a Bond girl starring in 1989's Licence to Kill with Timothy Dalton.

Lowell spent much of her childhood traveling with her father James, who was a geologist. Immediately after high school, she was signed by the Ford modeling agency. She would model for such clients as Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein before turning to acting.

Lowell's notable acting roles include those of Bond girl Pam Bouvier in the James Bond movie Licence to Kill (1989) and Jamie Ross on the television drama Law & Order, a character she reprised on its spinoff, Law & Order: Trial by Jury, as a judge.

Lowell and Richard Gere married in 2002, after dating for several years. The couple have a son, Homer James Jigme Gere, who was born prior to their marriage, in 2000. She was married to actor Griffin Dunne from 1989 to 1995 and has a daughter, Hannah Dunne, from that marriage. Her first marriage to fashion photographer John Stember was from 1984 to 1988.

Lowell, like her husband, is a devoted supporter of preserving the culture of Tibet and practices Tibetan Buddhism
