James Bond star Sir Roger Moore died seven years in the past aged 89 on May 23, 2017.

The performing legend starred in additional official 007 films than another actor – even surpassing Sir Sean Connery whose Never Say Never Again wasn’t made by EON Productions.

In reality, when The Saint actor was solid in 1973’s Live and Let Die he was 45, three years older than the unique Scottish star.

By the time Roger starred in 1985’s A View To A Kill he was 57, the oldest official Bond captured on display.

Aside from the lighthearted and tongue-in-cheek nature of his 007 films, in actual life he was recognized for being a real gentleman.

When taking pictures 1974’s The Man with the Golden Gun – which is on ITV4 in the present day – future Bond producer Barbara Broccoli was simply a youngster and has fond reminiscences of her time with Roger.

Barbara’s father Cubby Broccoli helmed the 007 films in these days and The Man with the Golden Gun was the second movie starring the brand new Bond after Connery and George Lazenby’s incarnations.

Speaking beforehand with Empire and commenting on a photograph from the film, Cubby’s daughter who now heads up EON Productions remembered: “Charm was Roger’s middle name. He was such a gentleman. I’d known him since I was a kid. I remember we were night-shooting at about 3 o’clock in the morning and some people came over. He had just sat down to eat something. He didn’t take a beat. He got straight up.”

Introducing himself along with his unimaginable attraction when anybody else most likely would have been slightly pissed off to be interrupted, Roger mentioned: “Where are you from? Nice to meet you.”

Broccoli remembered: “I was just like ‘Wow.’ It was very unusual. These films were so impactful to him. He travelled all over the world and obviously saw both sides of life. Audrey Hepburn was sick and asked him to take over as a Unicef ambassador and he did. He was an incredible man.”
