For some reason, I was in the mood to watch Roger Moore's 1979 James Bond movie, Moonraker yesterday. Although Moore was not my favorite James Bond actor, as many times he portrayed Agent 007 as a bit of a fop, but his movies were entertaining. For Your Eyes Only (1981) is my favorite of Moore's Bonds.
Today, it has been reported that Sir Roger Moore has passed away at 89.
Roger Moore, the handsome English actor who appeared in seven films as James Bond — the most of any Bond actor — and as Simon Templar on “The Saint” TV series, has died in Switzerland after a short battle with cancer. He was 89.
His family issued an announcement on Twitter: “It is with the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today. We are all devastated.”From actress Tanya Roberts on Facebook:
So sorry to hear about Roger's passing today. We had a lot of fun working on A View to a Kill together. He always had a joke to tell, and was a pleasure to work with, he was a terrific guy.
