The James Bond movie series is legendary, as are the actors who have played England’s most famous spy. From Sean Connery to Pierce Brosnan, and now Daniel Craig, everyone has a favorite “Bond.” And sadly, one “Bond” actor has passed away after a brief battle with cancer.
Famed actor Sir Roger Moore has died at the age of 89 in Switzerland, his family said. In a statement, they said that he spent his final days “surrounded by love” after a “short but brave” battle with cancer. “The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great that it cannot be quantified in words alone,” the statement read. “Our thoughts must now turn to supporting Kristina at this difficult time, and in accordance with our father’s wishes there will be a private funeral in Monaco.”
Moore will be buried in Monaca, where he lived with his fourth wife, Kristina Tholstrup. He is also survived by his children, Deborah, Geoffrey and Cristian.
Born in London, Moore was best known for his work portraying James Bond, but his family said that his time working with UNICEF was what he considered to be most rewarding. “We know our own love and admiration will be magnified many times over, across the world, by people who knew him for his films, his television shows and his passionate work for UNICEF which he considered to be his greatest achievement,” the statement said. “The affection our father felt whenever he walked on to a stage or in front of a camera buoyed him hugely and kept him busy working into his 90th year, through to his latest appearance in November 2016 on stage at London’s Royal Festival Hall.”
The statement concluded with a tender tribute, saying, “Thank you Pops for being you, and before being so very special to so many people.”
Rest in peace, Sir Roger Moore.
