James Bond actor, Sir Roger Moore dies at 89

Legendary James Bond actor, Sir Roger Moore has died at the age of 89,  his family has announced.

In a statement posted on the British actor's official social media accounts, it was revealed that Moore passed away today in Switzerland after a "short but brave battle with cancer".
 
'It is with a heavy heart that we must announce our loving father, Sir Roger Moore, has passed away today in Switzerland after a short but brave battle with cancer.
 
"The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone."

"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 affection our father felt whenever he walked onto a stage or in front of a camera buoyed him hugely and kept him busy working into his 90th year, through to his last appearance in November 2016 on stage at London's Royal Festival Hall.

"The capacity crowd cheered him on and off stage, shaking the very foundations of the building just a short distance from where he was born. 

"Thank you Pops for being you, and for being so very special to so many people. 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.' the statement reads.

Sir Roger Moore was best known for being the third actor to play the British secret agent James Bond in seven feature films between 1973 and 1985 and Simon Templar in The Saint between 1962 and 1969.

OMG!!
One of my favourite Bond Son is gone. Adieu Grandpa. Adieu.

Luv his role in "The spy who loved me" where his car turned into an underwater sub upon hittin the depths. Can't 4get Mr Stromberg's Atlantis Mansion that rises from the Ocean deep .
Still lovin "For your eyes only" especially his date with the freak beauty 'Countessa' and the scary rock climbing part towards the end. The movie even featured a 504 saloon Car.

Jst reminiscing about "Octopussy" OMG!! how I luv that movie especially where he saved the circus show from a nuclear blast and the stunt he pulled at the end as he hanged on that Indian Prince private jet as it flew.

WOW!! I can vividly remember "A view to a kill" where Bond Son slept with grace Jones n I heard it was some real shit. Well Bond sons always knack the prettiest broads in town.

"Live n let Die" still remains one of my best Bond Movie till date. This charming spy has to seduce a beautiful sorceress who couldn't resist him. Also lovin the voodoo part and that character 'Whisper' a huge dude with the tiny voice.

"Moonraker" is also the ish and "The Man with the golden gun is Dope too.

Rest in Peace Bond Son.
