Roger Moore, aged 89 was death in Switzerland on Tuesday. He is the suavely breezy star of seven James Bond films. He is the British actor who died of cancer after a short battle, according to a statement posted on his twitter account by his family. They stated as,
“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,”.
Roger Moore’s relaxed style and sense of humor, which relied massively on the arched eyebrow, like a commentary on the essential ridiculousness of the Bond films, in which the handsome British secret agent was as adept at mixing martinis, includes beautiful women and ordering gourmet meals as he was at arranging of super-villains trying to take over the world.
“To me, the Bond situations are so ridiculous, so outrageous,” he said at once. “I mean, this man is assumed to be a spy, and yet, everybody knows he’s a spy.
Every bartender in the world allows him martinis that are shaken, not stirred. What kind of serious spy is known everywhere he goes? It’s outrageous. So you have to treat the humor outrageously as well.”
