A disconsolate headline from the streets of Hollywood is that the man who gave colors to the character named “James Bond 007” SIR ROGER MOORE has taken his last breathes on Tuesday in Switzerland. He was 89 fighting bravely with cancer but at the end, he lost his life to it.
It is a real heavy heart situation to announce that “our loving father Sir Roger Moore, has passed away today in Switzerland after a short but brave battle with cancer’ the family statement said.
It is really awful news from the Hollywood to announce such statement as we all know what a great personality he was and what does he meant for the industry but as per saying no one can stop you from meeting with your maker.
Sir Roger Moore in the early 70s started representing the man whose code number was 007 as he was the longest-serving Bond actor, he acted in seven of its which are::
• Live and Let Die (1973),
• The Man with the Golden Gun (1974),
• The Spy Who Loved Me (1977),
• Moonraker (1979),
• For Your Eyes Only (1981),
• Octopussy (1983),
• A View to a Kill (1985).
He just not the face of James Bond in the Industry as some of his pre-Bond magnificent works are:
• UK TV series Ivanhoe (1959-1959)
• The Saint (1962-69),
• ABC’s Maverick, in which he played the English-accented cousin of James Garner’s titular card shark.
• The quest
And much more in his magnificent career.
Talking about his early life he was born in London where his Father was a policeman and he was his only child. He enrolled himself in the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art before which he used to study studied painting. After his studies he played many small roles in mainstream cinema and also worked in theater but after that he moved to mandatory army duty and after that he moved to Hollywood in the 1950s where he appeared opposite Elizabeth Tylor in 1954 in the movie named The Last Time I Saw Paris and also worked in Interrupted Melody with Eleanor Parker in the same year.
It was in 1970 when he was appointed as managing director of European production for Faberge’s Brut Productions. Working with the company he involved himself in producing A Touch of Class the movie which makes Glenda Jackson an Oscar award winner for best actor and after that, he made his first appearance as James Bond in “Live and Let Die” and gave his twelve more years to make six more of the series.
He left a gap in the Industry which can’t be fulfilled as the Hollywood will never forget him.
