‘With the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today. We are all devastated,’ his family tweeted on his official account.

 

In a statement, they added: ‘It was with a heavy heart that we announce our loving father Sir Roger Moore has passed away in Switzerland after a short but brave battle with a cancer. The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone.

 

‘We know our own love and admiration will be magnified many times overs, across the world, by people who knew him from his films, his television shows and his passionate work for UNICEF which he considered his greatest achievement.

 

‘The affection our father felt whenever he walked on to a stage or in front of a camera buoyed him hugely and kept him busy working into his 90th year, through to his last appearance in November 2016 on stage at London’s Royal Festival Hall.

‘The capacity crowd cheered him on and off stage, shaking the very foundations of the building just a shirt distance form where he was born.

 

‘Thank you Pops for being you, and for being so very special to so many people. Our thoughts must know turn to supporting Kristina at this difficult time, and in an accordance with our father’s wishes there will be a private funeral in Monaco.’

 

Moore was born on 14 October 1927 and is best known for being the third actor to play the British secret agent James Bond in seven feature films between 1973 and 1985.

 

His firs tBond film was Live And Let Live in 1973, and he went on to play Bond in six other movies – The Man with the Golden Gun (1974); The Spy Who Loved Me (1977); Moonraker (1979); For Your Eyes Only (1981); Octopussy (1983); and A View to a Kill (1985) – and remains the longest-serving Bond actor, having spent 12 years in the role.

In his time as an ambassador he travelled the world to see Unicef’s work in action, advocating specifically for children’s rights in countries including Brazil, Mexico and Ethiopia to highlight the impact of donations made.

 

Knighted for his services in 2003, he said at the time that it meant ‘far more to me than if I had got it for acting… I was proud because I received it on behalf of UNICEF as a whole and for all it has achieved over the years’.

Preferred Pierce Brosnan as 007, but will always remember Roger Moore and his cool submarine car in the Spy Who Loved Me. RIP man.

Roger darling, no one did it better than you: BRITT EKLAND and seven other Bond girls share their intimate and mischievous memories of the spy who loved them

 

James Bond is famous for two things: saving the world and always getting the girl – and none of the stars who have played him did it with more charm or style than Roger Moore.

 

The actor, who died last week at the age of 89, was adored by the string of glamorous actresses who played his on-screen love interests, and he remained close friends with many of them long after the cameras stopped rolling. 

 

Here his ‘Bond girls’ share their intimate, and often hilarious, anecdotes of a man they all regard as a perfect gentleman with a mischievous sense of humour – always ready to defuse their love scenes with his impish wit.

Meanwhile Sean Connery-the first actor to ever play bond, stricken with cancer, is still alive and kicking.

 

Perhaps at times god does not favor gentlemen. Still, kicking the bucket at almost 90 is quite a feat.

 

RIP Roger Moore.
