Moore wanted first a painter and later worked as a model. After a few figurantenrollen, without much success, he scored his first bigger role as Wilfred of Ivanhoe in the tv series Ivanhoe. Tv showed him initially better than film, because in 1962 he broke the final as Simon Templar in The Saint.

After the end of the series he started to focus more on movies, again without success, and persecutors again on tv. That the series The Persuaders, with, among others, Tony Curtis, quickly ended, it was a blessing for him. So he could in 1973, debut in Live and Let die, the first of seven James bond movies in which he’s the world’s most famous secret agent would do so. In addition to its debut was that The Man With The Golden Gun (1974),The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979), For Your Eyes Only (1981), Octopussy (1983) and A View to A Kill(1985).

Years later he would still be with 007 are associated. ‘People call me still Mr. Bond and I think that’s not bad at all, why would I? ” he said about it. That he only heroes played, he found pity. “I have all my life, heroes played, because I looked like a hero. The roles to me were offered had little more ground than look the way I looked’, he once said in an interview. “I would have liked even a real villain played.’

After his Bondjaren did Moore quite a bit easier. In 1991, he was appointed UNICEF goodwillambassadeur.

Moore was suffering for longer with cancer. ‘The saddest part of aging is that most of my friends already gone,” he said about his age in an interview from 2014 in The Guardian. “I miss David Niven is still the most. I can his movies still don’t see without a tear.’

With the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today. We are all devastated.
