Talk about an interesting person, Dent is played by Anthony Dawson. Dawson's most famous role is of course the "killer" in Dial M for Murder. You wouldn't know it to look at him but he was quite the ladies' man. He had a brief affair with the lead actress of the movie, you know, Grace Kelly. He was a favorite of director Terence Young who cast his voice and cat-stroking hands for Ernst Stavro Blofeld in his two James Bond movies, From Russia with Love and Thunderball.
I had not realized Dr. No, From Russia With Love, and Thunderball were all directed by the same person though Goldfinger was directed by someone else. It makes sense, though. Despite Goldfinger broadly being considered the best, I’ve always preferred the three Young Bonds to it. And I’ve always viewed those three Bonds as being similar in quality and 3 of my 4 favorites. (Casino Royale, while totally different, is also top 4 for me.)
