?Roger Moore, the spy we loved
007, we are shaken AND stirred to say goodbye. Farewell to the most famous and longest running James Bond, actor Sir Roger Moore. The Englishman was 89, and his debonaire legacy will live on.
Lyrics from the theme songs of his Bond films are flooding back in tribute, along with his best lines and iconic gentleman spy looks.
Moore was unimaginably suave, a class act who seemed to live in a tuxedo off-camera too, at home in Switzerland.
Nobody did Bond better. This is not a controversial stance,
The beknighted English actor also memorably played Simon Templar in the television series The Saint.
Moore's handsomeness was the first thing you noticed. He backed it up with a solidity and sense of humor such good-looking men often lack.
He was also kind to children, as this anecdote reveals, and a protector of animal rights.
We miss you already, Sir Roger. ?
