Pinewood Studios dedicated one of its sound stages to the late Roger Moore in an emotional, star-studded ceremony yesterday.
Today marks a special day of tribute to the late, great Roger Moore, with the one-night-only re-release of ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ and ‘For Your Eyes Only’ to cinemas. The beloved actor took the character of James Bond 007 to new heights throughout his thirteen-year, seven-film run in the role. A huge part of that was Moore’s more overtly comedic take on the material, with his frequently arched eyebrow, and his tremendous knack for one-liners.Going movie by movie, here are our personal favourite Bond one-liners, as impeccably delivered by the sadly missed screen star.Read More:Thunderball actress Molly Peters diesHeart-warming Roger Moore anecdotePierce Brosnan pens emotional Moore tribute
As a boy of 11, I left Ireland for London on Aug. 12, 1964 — the same day Ian Fleming died. That weekend I saw “Goldfinger” with Sean Connery at the ABC Cinema on Putney High Street with my mother, May, and my stepfather, Bill.

Roger Moore's James Bond movies were home to some of the most memorable spy gadgets in the franchise's proud (and occasionally not-so-good) history. Here are our picks for the top 10.
Roger Moore, who played 007 seven times, never had Sean Connery's gravitas — but with his sense of humor, he didn't need it. A remembrance from the author of "James Bond Unmasked."
Roger Moore, who played James Bond in more films than any other actor, died today in Switzerland at age 89 after what his family described in their Twitter announcement as “a short but brave battle with cancer.” Taking on the difficult task of following Sean Connery as 007, over the course of seven films he would make the character his own, paving the way for future runs by Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig. From his first film with Elizabeth Taylor to his turn in cult favorite Spice World opposite the Spice Girls, here’s a look back at a dashing career.

Roger Moore has said that Herve Villechaize, the diminutive henchman from Bond film ‘The Man With The Golden Gun’, was a ‘sex maniac’ with a ‘unnatural lust for women’. Villechaize played Nick Nack, sidekick of Christopher Lee’s villainous Scaramanga in the 1974 movie, which filmed across the Far East. During an ‘evening with’ event on London’s Southbank, Moore said that Villechaize slept with 35 women during the shoot, including several prostitutes.

Speaking to an audience at the Southbank Centre in London, Sir Roger, who is the longest serving actor to play the MI6 agent, denied he had received any offers. Sir Roger, 89, paid tribute to Daniel Craig and Sean Connery who he described as the best actors to have filled the tuxedo of the world's most celebrated spy.
Seven-time James Bond star Sir Roger Moore has put his weight behind ‘Poldark’ star Aidan Turner becoming the next 007.
