Ursula Andress
1) Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018): Starring Johnny Depp and Eddie Redmayne -- Even though the majority of this movie was made throughout the UK, most notably, Lacock Abbey, Wiltshire, (Hogwarts School); Great Scotland YardLondon (The British Ministry of Magic); and Highgate Cemetery, Swain's Lane (The Entrance to the Catacombs of Paris); a notable portion was also shot in Paris, France (The French Department of Magic).

2) Doctor No (1962): Starring Sean Connery and Ursula Andress -- It's a little-known fact that this James Bond classic was the first full-length feature film shot in Jamaica. At the time of filming, Jamaica was part of the West Indies Federation, and a British Crown Colony, yet it became independent from the UK on the 6th of August, 1962 (just two months prior to the release of this film).

3) Star Trek Beyond (2016): Starring Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine -- This was the first ever Star Trek film shot primarily in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, rather than in Hollywood, America, although the Starbase 'Yorktown' was situated in Dubai.

Chapultepec Castle4) Romeo + Juliet (1996): Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes -- Due to a variety of different factors, both cosmetic and financial in tone, this 1597 William Shakespeare stage play wasn't filmed in the city it was originally set, Verona, Italy. Instead, it was reinterpreted in Mexico, within such lavish locations as Texcoco, Veracruz, Mexico City, Chapultepec Castle, and Estudios Churubusco Azteca (The Mexican Federal Film Studio). 

5) The Dark Knight (2008): Starring Christian Bale and Heath Ledger -- Thirty-five minutes into this movie, we get to see Batman jump from the top of the eighth-tallest office-building in the world. It's called, 'Two IFC', it measures 415 meters high, and it's a prominent Hong Kong landmark that consists of two skyscrapers (the IFC Mall and the Four Seasons Hotel).
