Sir Roger Moore, best known for playing James Bond in seven films about the titular spy, has died at age 89. His family revealed that Moore passed away after a short battle with cancer. In addition to being known for his role as Bond, Moore was known for starring in the TV series’ The Persuaders and The Saint. He was also known for his humanitarian work with UNICEF, and was appointed a Goodwill ambassador in 1991. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 2003 for “services to charity”.
Moore’s Bond movies are: Live and Let Die (1973), 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). But his acting career spaned from 1954’s The Last Time I Saw Paris to 2011’s A Princess for Christmas.
Sir Rodger Moore, you will be missed. Your debonair flair, in life as in your movies, was often emulated, but never quite obtained. So to you, we raise a martini. Shaken, not stirred.
With the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today. We are all devastated. pic.twitter.com/6dhiA6dnVg
