Over the years, James Bond has been assisted by various colour characters.
Felix Leiter is an American CIA agent and Bond's closest friend and most recurring ally. Leiter has appeared in nine different films by Eon Productions, portrayed by seven different actors; Jack Lord in Dr. No, Cec Linder in Goldfinger, Rik Van Nutter in Thunderball, Norman Burton as Diamonds Are Forever, David Hedison in Live and Let Die and Licence to Kill, John Terry in The Living Daylights, and Jeffrey Wright in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.
The character also appeared in two unofficial adaptions; Michael Pate played Leiter as a British agent named Clarence in the 1954 Climax! version of Casino Royale, and Bernie Casey played the first African-American Leiter in Never Say Never Again.
General Anatol Alexis Gogol, played by Walter Gotell, is the head of the KGB and M's Russian counterpart. Original to the films, Gogol has appeared in The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy and A View to a Kill. For The Living Daylights, Gotell was too ill to reprise his role, which had been greatly expanded, so the new character of General Leonid Pushkin was created in his place. Gotell still appears in the film, having a cameo as Gogol at the end. Gogol is mentioned as having been promoted to the Foreign Service.
Sheriff J.W. Pepper, played by Clifton James, is a Louisiana State Police Sheriff who encounters Bond in Live and Let Die. He reappears in The Man with the Golden Gun, on holiday with his wife in Thailand.
Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky is an ex-KGB agent turned Russian mafioso who was previously crippled by Bond, but still helps him from time to time. Played by Robbie Coltrane, Zukovsky first appears in GoldenEye and later returns in The World Is Not Enough in a significantly expanded role. At the end of the film, he rescues Bond from Elektra King but is fatally shot by Elektra in the process.
