Tania Mallets death is confirmed by the official James Bond account on Twitter, where the statement reads:

Tania Mallet began his career as a model when she was a teenager, and became a well known face in the 50 - and 60-century. James Bond producer Albert R. Broccoli got the eyes for her after seeing a picture of her in a bikini. He invited her to screen test for the role of Tatiana Romanova in the film Agent 007 sees red, a role she did not.
instead she was made to play the role of Tilly Masterson in the next bond movie Goldfinger. The film was a big success, but Tania Mallet chose to leave the spotlight and was never in any further filmmaking. By his own admission hated her lack of freedom as a film contract entailed, and felt that the compensation was ”horrible”.
Tania Mallet, was a cousin to actress Helen Mirren.
