Angela Margaret Scoular (8 November 1945 – 11 April 2011) was an English actress.
Her father was an engineer and she was born in London. She attended St.George's School, Harpenden, Queen's College, Harley Street and RADA.
Scoular was among a small group of actors to have appeared in two James Bond films, made by different production companies. Scoular played Buttercup in the 1967 comedy Casino Royale and then two years later made an appearance in the Eon Productions Bond film series playing Ruby in 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Her other film credits include A Countess from Hong Kong (1967), Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush (1967), Great Catherine (1968), Doctor in Trouble (1970), The Adventurers (1970), Adventures of a Taxi Driver (1976), and Adventures of a Private Eye (1977).
Her television credits included playing Cathy in a 1967 BBC production of Wuthering Heights, Doctor in the House, The Avengers, Coronation Street, Penmarric, As Time Goes By, You Rang, M'Lord?, in the recurring role of Lady Agatha Shawcross, and Lady Margaret Thompson in an episode of Series 2 of the Thames television series Minder.
She was a niece of actress Margaret Johnston. She moved in with actor Leslie Phillips in 1977, at which time she was pregnant by another actor. She brought up her son with Phillips, and, following Phillips' former wife's death in 1981, she married him in 1982.
Scoular suffered from depression and anorexia nervosa. She attempted suicide in 1992 by slashing her wrists with a knife. It was revealed in March 2009 that she was suffering from colorectal cancer; she was eventually declared cancer-free, but in the months preceding her death she had feared its return. Weeks before her death, she was arrested for drunk-driving. She died on 11 April 2011 after ingesting acid drain cleaner and pouring it on her body, causing lethal burns to her digestive tract and skin. She was survived by Phillips and her son Daniel. An inquest at Westminster Coroner's Court on 20 July 2011 established that Scoular had been an alcoholic and suffered from depression and anxiety about debts; she was on medication for bipolar disorder at the time of her death. The coroner recorded that Scoular had "killed herself while the balance of her mind was disturbed", and stated that her death was not suicide.A Countess from Hong Kong (1967) - The Society Girl
