Roger Moore has died aged 89

Roger Moore has died aged 89
Roger Moore, Bond legend, has died aged 89 after a struggle with cancer. As an actor Moore played in the Saint and the Persuaders, but it was his take on James Bond that left the most lasting impression, although the actor would say it was his work with UNICEF that he was most proud of. The family have issued a statement:
“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.”
For one generation, which happens to be mine, Moore was our first Bond, and the defining one. But Moore was a skilled speaker who could hold an audience rapt when talking about just his own life, rather than in a role.
