Roger Moore Daniel Craig Pierce Brosnan

In the wake of the death of Sir Roger Moore, two of his fellow James Bond actors have paid tribute to the legendary figure.

Current 007 Daniel Craig and his immediate predecessor Pierce Brosnan both took to their social media accounts upon hearing the news of Moore’s passing on Tuesday (May 23rd), after what the actor’s three children described as a “short but brave battle with cancer”.

Writing via Facebook, Brosnan, who starred in four James Bond films from 1995 to 2002, said: “You were a big part of my life, from 'The Saint' to James Bond… you were a magnificent James Bond and one that led the way for me, the world will miss you and your unique sense of humor for years to come.”

The death of such an iconic actor as Roger Moore is always a tragedy, but he certainly left the world a lot of happy memories with his portrayal of James Bond. But there is one person in the world who perhaps has the greatest memory of Roger Moore in action.

When London writer Marc Haynes met the 'Live and Let Die' star in 1983 at the age of just 7-years-old, he had no idea how significant a moment it would be. He was with his grandfather in Nice airport when he spotted the actor reading a newspaper at the departure gate.

The Carer Review

Very Good

Brian Cox gets the role of a lifetime in this warm comedy about living life to the full regardless of your age. As a colourful national treasure of an actor (think Richard Burton crossed with Ian McKellan), Cox storms through this film with personality and energy. And in his interaction with his costars, the filmmakers make some important points with offhanded charm.

Cox plays Sir Michael Gifford, a Shakespearean icon forced into retirement by Parkinson's. Living on his isolated country estate, he clashes continually with his daughter Sophia (Emilia Fox) and his assistant Milly (Anna Chancellor) about how he should live, dismissing a series of carers they have hired for him. Then the Hungarian Dorottya (Coco Konig) arrives, cracking through his bluster with her sharp intelligence, blunt compassion and her own experience performing Shakespeare's plays back home. She also conspires with him to attend a critics' ceremony at which he's being given a life achievement award. Sophia thinks he's not up to attending, so Dorottya turns to Milly and Michael's trusty driver Joseph (Karl Johnson) for help.

The simplicity of the plot helps the film avoid the usual pitfalls of these kinds of movies. There aren't any villains here (Sophia is just unusually concerned), and there's no romantic nonsense between Michael and Dorottya. The central message isn't revolutionary (people who are old or infirm shouldn't be hidden from society), and the plot never goes anywhere unexpected. But in the characters, the film finds a powerful resonance. It's funny, smart and utterly charming. And the cast deliver beautifully off-handed performances. Newcomer Konig nicely underplays Dorottya, which makes her strikingly likeable, especially as her own subplot about applying to acting school gurgles quietly in the background. Chancellor and Fox find intriguing textures in their roles, which are more complex than expected.

Roger Moore Denies Racism Over Idris Elba James Bond Comments


Idris Elba Roger Moore

Roger Moore has attempted to clarify the comments he made about the possibility of Idris Elba becoming the next James Bond, after he was accused of racism. In the interview conducted with Paris Match magazine, Moore reportedly said that Elba could not play Bond because he was not "English-English" enough.

“A few years ago, I said that [Cuba Gooding Jnr would make an excellent Bond, but it was a joke!” Moore stated in the interview. "Although James may have been played by a Scot, a Welshman and an Irishman, I think he should be 'English-English'. Nevertheless, it's an interesting idea, but unrealistic.”

Spending an afternoon with Sir Roger Moore, regardless of the thousand or so additional members of the audience, is not something to be sniffed at. Moore has played a number of iconic roles during his 68 year career including James Bond and Simon Templar in The Saint.

Roger Moore is "warming up" his fans before his autobiography due to be released next year.

Moore is on tour "warming up" his fans for his forthcoming autobiography which he hopes, should publishers allow it, to entitle "One Lucky Bastard" or, should this profanity prove too controversial, "One Lucky Fellow". The 86-year-old discussed his tour and upcoming memoirs with the BBC, it appears he had discarded other titles including "Moore on Bond or Moore or Less" after realising that he truly is "exceedingly lucky".
