Sir Roger Moore.

It was announced this evening that Sir Roger Moore the distinguished actor has passed away today from cancer after a short illness.
He was 89.
Appeared in many film roles but notably I remember him from 1958 when he appeared in Ivanhoe.
As a result of this he later played Simon Templar in 'The Saint' a series that ran through the sixties.
One of his most important roles however was James Bond during the
seventies where he appeared in 'Live and let die' 'Man with the golden gun' ,' Spy who loved me' ' Moonraker' and his last performance 'View to a kill' in 1985.
Appeared as Lord Brett Sinclair in 'The Persuaders'
He will be greatly missed as he was an oustanding actor.
Condolences to his family.

Sad to hear. I also remember him from Ivanhoe onwards.

He portrayed the suave, British stiff upper lip image better than anybody.

R.I.P.

I always thought he was the James Bond that Ian Fleming had in mind,but that is not in anyway to detract from Sean Connery's portrayal.

Sounds as if he was a 'decent chap'. A good high on which to go out.

We used to see Roger Moore (as he was then) in the local shops regularly when I was working in Monaco.

Although I cannot say that I "knew" him (or indeed that he knew me!) he always had a word and said hello to the regulars. He really did seem like a gentleman.

RIP

I know two other fellows with similar characters, easy going and very courteous. They like RM, always seem to be successful with the women. There's a message in there somewhere! RIP

On Desert Island Discs, he ascribed his success in acting to this and that; too modest to admit outright that it had been mostly due to his looks.
