Roger Moore Backs Lions Campaign


Roger Moore

The former Bond star is backing moves by bosses at Animal Defenders International (ADI) to transport 33 big cats from South America to a specialist sanctuary in South Africa after they spent years in confinement as part of travelling shows in Peru and Colombia.

ADI staff plan to charter a Boeing 747 to fly the beasts home to Johannesburg in time for Christmas, and Sir Roger has sent out a call to animal lovers to help raise money to foot the $352,000 (£220,000) bill.

He says, "Please give what you can to help give the animals saved by Animal Defenders International the peace and sanctuary they need. Together we can take these animals, who have suffered so much, to their forever homes."

Screenwriter Christopher Wood Dies At 79


Christopher Wood Roger Moore

The writer passed away on 9 May (15), but his death was only made public last week after Sir Roger Moore paid tribute to him on Twitter.com.

Wood began his writing career in 1971 with Confessions of a Window Cleaner, which was later adapted into a saucy movie franchise. He went on to write several fiction novels, including Make it Happen to Me, A Dove Against Death, Soccer Thug and The Stewardesses, under a variety of pseudonyms.

Wood then moved into screenwriting and penned the script for James Bond films The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker. He was also the only author to write novels based on his James Bond screenplays with James Bond, The Spy Who Loved Me and James Bond and Moonraker.

Roger Moore Feigns Deafness To Avoid Awkward Questions


Bond Roger Moore

The 007 actor is currently touring the U.K. performing shows titled An Evening With Sir Roger Moore, during which audience members can grill the movie veteran on any topic.

However, he admits he has a cheeky tactic to avoid answering any questions he deems inappropriate.

"I'm always surprised by the questions, and sometimes I have to pretend I didn't quite hear some of them," he tells Exeterexpressandecho.co.uk, adding, "If I can't think of an answer I can think up a suitable lie."

Sir Roger Moore: Daniel Craig Looks Like A 'killer'


Roger Moore Daniel Craig

Sir Roger Moore thinks Daniel Craig looks like a ''killer.''

The 'Live And Let Die' star - who portrayed the secret spy agent across seven films from 1973 until 1985 - believes the 47-year-old actor makes a ''terrific'' James Bond because he fits the role and has the ability to ''frighten'' viewers.

Sir Roger, 88, said of Daniel while appearing on Britain's 'Loose Women' this morning (19.10.15): ''I think he's terrific, he's a great Bond. He looks like a killer, he really does.''

Roger Moore Defends Daniel Craig Over Wrist-slash Row


Roger Moore Daniel Craig Naomie Harris

Daniel, who is about to hit cinema screens as 007 for the fourth time in Spectre, made headlines earlier this month (Oct15) when he said he would rather "break this glass and slash my wrists" than play the part again.

His Spectre co-star Naomie Harris later spoke out to insist Daniel had made the comments in jest, and now former Bond Sir Roger has also defended the actor over the remarks.

He is convinced Daniel merely meant he was tired of discussing the role after a year shooting Spectre, during which he underwent an operation to his knee in New York when he got injured on set.

Roger Moore Tips Jackman Or Lewis For Bond


Roger Moore Hugh Jackman Damian Lewis Daniel Craig

Sir Roger Moore has tipped Hugh Jackman or Damian Lewis as the next James Bond.

The 88-year-old actor - who played the suave secret agent in seven films between 1973 and 1985 - has given his blessing to either of the two stars to take over when Daniel Craig retires from the franchise.

And Roger tipped Dame Maggie Smith, 80, to take on a role as an unlikely Bond girl.

Sir Roger Moore Thinks Blofeld Could Become A Brit


James Bond Roger Moore Christoph Waltz Daniel Craig

James Bond super-villain Blofeld could return as a British character, Sir Roger Moore has mused.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld - also known as Number 1 - is the German evil genius at the head of the global criminal organisation SPECTRE who was seemingly killed off in 1981's 'For Your Eyes Only'.

Speculation is sky high the criminal mastermind will appear in new Bond film 'SPECTRE' - due the movie's title - and 007 legend Moore thinks if he does return to the franchise his nationality will change because the world is too politically correct to demonise certain nationalities as evil any more.

Roger Moore Loves Sam Smith's Bond Theme

The singer has recorded Writing's On The Wall for new movie Spectre.

He follows in the footsteps of stars including Shirley Bassey, Madonna and Adele, who have all previously recorded Bond themes.

The song debuted on Friday (25Sep15) to mixed reviews, with some fans praising its "haunting" qualities while others branded it the "worst Bond theme ever." One scathing reviewer wrote, "Great cover of 'Earth Song', mate. When's the new Bond theme out?"

Madame Tussauds London Brings Together ALL SIX James Bonds In Wax

Principal sculptor Stephen Mansfield is pictured working on the wax figure sculpt of Roger Moore, as Madame Tussauds London announces it will bring together all six Bonds for the first time in October. Moore played Bond seven times beginning with 1973’s Live, Let Die , is portrayed as he appeared in the 1977 movie The Spy Who Loved Me. - Madame Tussauds London today announced it is bringing together wax figures of ALL SIX James Bonds for the very first time this October, with five completely new wax 007s joining the existing figure of Daniel Craig. To coincide with the release of Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment's SPECTRE, the line-up of Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig will appear at the legendary London attraction for a limited time only, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds' worldwide. This unique experience, created in close collaboration with EON Productions, will give fans an opportunity to stand side by side with all six Bonds - in the same place, at the same time. Guests are invited to see how they measure up to each 007, pose with their favourite and take a stand out profile picture. Each of these new wax figures will be featured in a classic 007 dinner suit, designed by Oscar® winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, based on the original costume. The Madame Tussauds team already had access to measurements of Craig, Connery, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan from previous figures featured at the attraction but needed George Lazenby's to complete the picture. The star of On Her Majesty's Secret Service was happy to oblige and gave the artists a sitting in LA in February. "The kind of information we can gather at a sitting is hugely beneficial, even at a different time period to the figure we are creating," commented Stephen Mansfield, one of the Principle Sculptors on the project. "George was extremely entertaining and generous and we gathered an entire catalogue of measurements, photographs and footage. We are using those along with references from the film to create what we hope will be an authentic and lifelike figure." General Manager of Madame Tussauds London, Edward Fuller, is delighted to be hosting the line up on the first leg of their world tour. He commented, "It's very at Madame Tussauds - London, United Kingdom - Friday 24th July 2015
