Countess Lisl von Schlaf Countess Lisl von Schlaf is a fictional character from the 1981 James Bond film For Your Eyes Only, portrayed by Cassandra Harris, coincidentally the late wife of later Bond star Pierce Brosnan.
The Countess is the mistress of Milos Columbo. At the casino, Lisl "dumps" Columbo, giving Bond an opportunity to meet her. The Contessa invites Bond to share champagne and oysters with her. Later on a beach, Aristotle Kristatos's henchman Emile Locque mows Lisl down with a beach buggy. James screams her name out but Lisl is dead. Bond avenges Lisl by pushing Locque and his car off a jagged cliff into the sharp rocks below. Columbo seemed not to care too much about Lisl when he learned of her death, although he described her saying, "I would laugh if my heart were not so heavy about my poor Lisl."
