Roger Moore

Roger Moore, who portrayed dapper big screen hero James Bond in seven different films, died following a long battle with cancer on May 23rd. He was 89.

"The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone," his family said in a statement. We know our love and admiration will be magnified many times over, across the world, by the people who knew him for his films, his television shows and his passionate work for UNICEF which he considered to be his greatest achievement. Thank you Pops for being you, and for being so very special to so many people."
