Roger Moore aka 007 taken out at 89 years

Sir Roger Moore, best known for his role as James Bond, has died at the age of 89, his family has announced.

He played the famous spy in seven Bond films including Live and Let Die and A View to a Kill.

Mr. Moore’s family confirmed the news on Twitter, saying he had died after “a short but brave battle with cancer”.

“With the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today. We are all devastated,” the statement said.

Mr. Moore always had fun with his character and earlier in his career was quoted as saying: “To me, the Bond situations are so ridiculous, so outrageous,” he once said. “I mean, this man is supposed to be a spy and yet, everybody knows he’s a spy. Every bartender in the world offers him martinis that are shaken, not stirred. What kind of serious spy is recognized everywhere he goes? It’s outrageous. So you have to treat the humor outrageously as well.”


The actor had a long career in both film and television. He is survived by his wife Kristina, daughter Deborah and sons Geoffery and Christian.
