Helga Brandt (Karin Dor) is the helicopter pilot/henchwoman of the villain Mr. Osato in the 1964 James Bond film, YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE.
Helga works for Mr. Osato (Teru Shimada), the Japanese industrialist and member of the criminal organization SPECTRE.
We first see Helga when James Bond (Sean Connery) is posing as Mr. Fisher, the new managing director of Empire Chemical. During this meeting with Mr. Osato, she is wearing a bright orange blouse and white high heels. Mr. Osato introduces her as his secretary, who proceeds to offer Bond a glass of champagne. Osato covertly x-rays Bond's chest which reveals his Walther PPK under his jacket. Osato reprimands him for his nasty smoking habit, to which Helga adds, "Mr. Osato believes in a healthy chest", as she bends down to serve him. Bond notices, Helga's healthy chest right in front of him. Helga proceeds to take notes during the interview. After 007 leaves, Osato orders her to kill him. She uses the phone to arrange a car-load of assassins to intercept Bond outside, but the attempts fail.
Next we see Bond get captured while investigating the Ning-Po, a ship linked to Osato Chemicals, and he is taken aboard and brought to Helga's cabin. There she is waiting on a couch with her legs crossed, and dressed very seductively. She is wearing a black slinky dress that appears more like a slip, with a sheer black semi-see through shall.
Helga is an expert torturer, but she spares Bond the violent interrogation when she attempts to seduce him. 007 claims that he is an industrial spy and offers Helga $150,000 to help him escape back to Tokyo. She refuses at first, stating that Osato would have her killed. Later she cuts his bonds and Bond uses the blade to cut off her speghetti straps on her dress. The pair have sex there in the ship cabin.
Helga then pretends to be helping him flee in a small Meyers 200 plane, which she pilots. She is wearing a leather flight jacket and pants. Once the plane is flying, she blocks Bond's arm with a wood plank and jumps with a parachute, leaving Bond to die in a crash. Bond is able to break the plank and regain control of the aircraft. He then lands safely and gets out of it before it explodes.The following day, Brandt is in the operations room of SPECTRE's volcanic launch site, where she assists in the capture of a Soviet spacecraft. She is wearing a red blouse. Blofield summons Osato and Number 11, which is another name for Helga. They enter his quarters, where Blofield immediately reprimands them for failing to recognise and kill Bond. Both of them are perplexed due to the fact that they thought they had been successful in disposing of Bond. Osato then shifts the blame to Brandt. Blofield reminds them that he does not tolerate failure, and bids them to leave. On her way across a metal bridge that is suspended above a piranha pool, Blofield pushes a button. Helga goes sliding down into the water, helplessly screaming. The hungry fish make short work of the alluring but deadly German redhead. All Osato can do is look on in terror.
- Helga's death in the film is very similar to that of Stromberg's Assistant , as they were both fed to carnivorous animals. The Assistant was fed to Stromberg's pet shark in the 1977 James Bond film, "The Spy Who Loved Me".
