Barbara Bach, Lady Starkey (born Barbara Goldbach; August 28, 1946) is an American actress and model, best known for her role as the Bond girl Anya Amasova in The Spy Who Loved Me. She is the wife of English musician and former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.
Bach was born Barbara Goldbach, in New York City, New York, in the Queens neighborhood of Rosedale, one of two daughters born to Howard Irwin Goldbach (1922–2001), a police officer of European Jewish heritage, and Marjorie Mary Goldbach (née McKnight; 1921–1997), an Irish homemaker. In 1964, she graduated from the all-girl Dominican Commercial High School in Jamaica, Queens. The following year, she shortened her last name to Bach and began modeling professionally, appearing in catalogs and fashion magazines.
Bach was one of the most sought-after faces in the '60s, working with the Eileen Ford Agency in New York, appearing on catalogs and the front covers of several international fashion magazines such as Seventeen (1965 and 1966), Vogue USA (July 1966) photographed by Richard Avedon, ELLE France (1966), Gioia Italy (1967–1970), and Figurino Brazil (1970).
Her acting career started in Italy, where she played Nausicaa in L'Odissea in 1968, an eight-hour long TV adaptation of Homer's famous epic poem The Odyssey, directed by Franco Rossi and produced by Dino de Laurentiis.
In 1972, Bach co-starred with two other Bond girls, Claudine Auger and Barbara Bouchet, in the mystery Black Belly of the Tarantula (a giallo film) and had small roles in other Italian films.
In 1977, Bach portrayed the Russian spy Anya Amasova in the James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me. Bach remarked after the film that Bond is "a chauvinist pig who uses girls to shield him against bullets."
In 1991, Bach co-founded the Self Help Addiction Recovery Program (SHARP) with Pattie Boyd, the former wife of George Harrison and Eric Clapton,
Bach's first marriage was to Italian businessman Augusto, Count Gregorini di Savignano di Romagna. The couple had two children together, daughter Francesca and son Gianni, before divorcing in 1975. Bach married British musician Ringo Starr, formerly of The Beatles, at Marylebone Town Hall on 27 April 1981. The two met in 1980, on the set of the film Caveman (1981).
Bach struggled with alcoholism and heavy drug use in her past, and along with her husband, checked into a rehab in 1988 for four weeks. The couple have remained sober ever since.
According to the International Vegetarian Union, Bach and Starr practise vegetarianism.
She is fluent in Italian and has a working knowledge of French and Spanish.
Her sister Marjorie Bach is married to Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh.
