Sir Roger Moore, the longest serving actor to play 007, died in Switzerland

Sir Roger Moore, the longest serving actor to play 007, died in Switzerland

Sir Roger Moore, the longest-serving 007 performer, died on Tuesday aged 89. His acting career thanks to the role of the HRM agent became a legend. The colleagues are paying tribute to the British actor who played James Bond over the longest period. 

Sir Roger played the role of James Bond seven times, that is the absolute record among the franchise’s performers. He really morphed into the 007, undoubtedly, he did better than other, however, he thought Sir Sean Connery had been the greatest Bond.

While arguably best known for his role as 007, the debonair star was a hugely successful in the TV series The Saint in the 1960s, and for his early 1970s series The Persuaders! in which he co-starred with Tony Curtis.

On the screen, Sir Roger reinvented the role of James Bond with tremendous skill, charisma and humour, said the producers of 007 franchise. The Hollywood will really miss this gifted actor.
