James Bond 'Moore' dies at 89

Hollywood actor and former James Bond star Sir Roger Moore passed away on Tuesday in Switzerland after a "short but fearless battle with cancer".

Daniel kept things simple with his post on the @007 Twitter account, sharing a picture of himself with Roger alongside the caption: "Nobody Does It Better - love Daniel".

"You were a magnificent James Bond and one that led the way for me, the world will miss you and your unique sense of humour for years to come", he said. "My heartfelt condolences to your family, friends and children". My grandad looks at it, half figures out it says "Roger Moore" - I have absolutely no idea who that is, and my hearts sinks.

The original big screen 007 said he will "miss" Sir Roger, with whom he enjoyed a long friendship "filled with jokes and laughter".

"He was so amusing, kind and thoughtful to everyone around him and in that Roger taught me what a movie star really was and should be".


Mumbai: Sir Roger Moore, the iconic Hollywood star, died yesterday after a short "but fearless battle with cancer", according to a statement by his family members.

Former Bond girl, Jane Seymour, who starred with Sir Roger in 1973's Live And Let Die, remembered him as being "funny, kind and thoughtful to everyone around him".

Sir Roger was the longest-serving actor to play the womanising MI6 agent, having portrayed 007 in seven films.

According to the BBC, in accordance to his wishes Sir Roger's funeral will be held in Monaco later this month.

"I don't see why a chap shouldn't do what he likes and live where he wants on his money, and the British government, which allows talent to go overseas because of taxation, has only itself to blame", he said in an interview in 1989.


Australian actor Russell Crowe tweeted: "Roger Moore, loved him".

Born Roger George Moore, on October 14, 1927 in the south London neighbourhood of Stockwell, he was the only son of a police constable and his wife, and had a happy childhood.

"Through his lifelong work with Unicef he showed me the true meaning of being a humanitarian and giving back". After the filming, he walked past me in the corridor, heading out to his vehicle - but as he got level, he paused, looked both ways, raised an eyebrow and in a hushed voice said, "Of course I remember our meeting in Nice".

Moore was well-equipped to tackle the career-defining role, as he had been the star of the British television spy series The Saint, which ran for much of the 1960s.
