Toronto – When he wasn’t being Bond, James Bond, he was being Roger Moore, talented actor who had inhabited the role of the dashing super spy in seven films. Moore succumbed to cancer at the age of 89, Tuesday, according to his official Twitter account, in his beloved Switzerland.His last appearance was on the stage of London’s Royal Festival Hall in November of 2016, just a short distance from where the actor was born.Moore’s children Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian, issued a statement saying “It is with a heavy heart that we must announce our loving father, Sir Roger Moore, has passed away today in Switzerland after a short but brave battle with cancer. The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone.” The statement confirmed that, of all his considerable career accomplishments, Moore considered his work for UNICEF to be his greatest source of professional pride.Moore famously, never took his turn as the dashing but deadly James Bond too seriously, at one time saying, “To me, the Bond situations are so ridiculous, so outrageous.” He regularly made fun of the character saying, “you have to treat the humour outrageously as well.”He came to the role in 1973 after fan-favourite Sean Connery grew tired of playing the part. Previously he had enjoyed years of success playing Simon Templar in the British series The Saint in the 1960’s.In 1991, Moore became a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, thanks to the late Audrey Hepburn. In 1996, he spoke at the World Congress Against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children where he disclosed that he himself had been a victim of childhood abuse. He received several awards for his humanitarian work and in 2008, published his autobiography, My Word is My Bond.In accordance with Sir Roger Moore’s wishes, the funeral will be a private, family service in Monaco.
Sir Michael, who was then in his 30s, went on to tell her that she was an “in quotes, a serious actress” and asked if her “equipment” undermined her credibility. “Your figure”, he added when questioned by the actress what he meant. “Serious actresses can’t have big bosoms, is that what you mean?” she replied, outraged. He also quoted a review that described her as “projecting sluttish eroticism” during the encounter, which Dame Helen later described as “enraging” and “extremely creepy”.Yesterday, in an interview with Event magazine, Sir Michael admitted that he might have been a “bit over-reactive” but defended his comments. He also denied that his attitude was sexist, saying: “You have to judge it by what happened in that time. If you didn’t live in that time, you’re not allowed an opinion in my view.”He continued: “Am I a sexist? No, I’m Yorkshire. I’ve been married for 57 years so something must be going right.”Their television clash has prompted years of questions, with both Dame Helen and Sir Michael talking about it in previous interviews. The actress, now 71, later told The Telegraph: “That’s the first talk show I’d ever done. I was terrified. I watched it and I actually thought, bloody hell! I don’t want to make up and nor does sheMichael Parkinson Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

He said: “She presented a provocative figure as she walked down the stairs carrying a feather boa, half dressed as I recall, with love and hate tattooed onto her knuckles. I would not have done my duty as a human being had I not reacted in a certain way.”I mean, we didn’t like each other. We have not done much since to repair the damage, but that sometimes happens in life.”When asked if there was a chance the pair could make up, he said: “I don’t want to. Nor does she. I don’t regard what happened as being anything other than good television. There is no need to apologise, not at all.”She didn’t want to do an interview and after about ten minutes I didn’t want to interview her. There’s no problem, it’s not World War III for God’s sake.” “I did really well. I was so young and inexperienced. And he was such a f—— sexist old fart. He was. He denies it to this day that it was sexist, but of course he was.”Last year, Dame Helen, who has described interest in her body as “prurient”, also reflected on how sexism remained a problem throughout the 1970s.She said: “That decade, after the sexual revolution but before feminism, was perilous for women. Men saw that as a sort of “Oh fantastic! We can f*** anything, however we like, whenever we like. They’re up for grabs, boys!” In the interview, he quoted a review that described her as “projecting sluttish eroticism” Their disagreement was first sparked more than 40 years ago, when Michael Parkinson dared to suggest to an up-and-coming Helen Mirren that her figure may undermine her credibility as an actress. But the clash, which prompted a huge sexism row and saw the pair ignore each other for decades, has little chance of repair – at least according to the presenter, who claims he has nothing to apologise for.
