London, March 31 (ANI): Former Bond girl Lana Wood has revealed that she almost died while filming an underwater scene in 'Diamonds Are Forever'.

The 67-year-old actress, who had an affair with Sean Connery during the making of the movie, said that she had to be rescued by divers during a scene when her character Plenty O'Toole was drowned in a swimming pool, the Daily Express reported.

Wood said that in the film she was supposed to die by having her ankles tied to a block of cement and she actually did that.

She said that the longer she stayed in, the block of cement kept moving, and pretty soon she couldn't reach up for the rope to pull her nose and mouth free to breathe, so the divers had to dive in and cut her free really fast.

Wood, who is a certified scuba diver, said that she asked for her scuba tank with which she was comfortable doing the stunt. (ANI)
