British actor Roger Moore commonly known as agent James Bond has passed on at the age of 89 after a short battle with cancer.
The  actor died on Tuesday in Switzerland ,according to a family statement posted on Sir Roger’s official Twitter account.

Moore stared in seven James Bond movies between 1973 to 1985 and was the second actor to play the James Bond character in the 007 movies.
“We know our own love and admiration will be magnified many times over, across the world, by people who knew him for his films, his television shows and his passionate work for UNICEF, which he considered to be his greatest achievement,” the statement said.

Born in London,England on October 14, 1927 in Stockwell, he was the son of Lillian (Pope) and George Alfred Moore, a policeman. Moore had studied painting before enrolling in the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

He played a few small roles in theater and films before his mandatory army duty, then moved to Hollywood in the 1950s.
In 1970, he became managing director for European production for Faberge’s Brut Productions. With the company, he co-starred with Tony Curtis in The Persuaders! for British television and was involved in producing A Touch of Class, which won a best-actress Oscar for Glenda Jackson.

He continued to work regularly in films after handing over Bond to Timothy Dalton, but never with the same success. His post-Bond films included such forgettable efforts as The Quest with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Spice World with the Spice Girls.
Moore starred in movies such as Live and let Die, The spy who loved me, The Moonraker among others.
Moore was said he thought the James Bond character was ridiculous  “To me, the Bond situations are so ridiculous, so outrageous, I mean, this man is supposed to be a spy and yet, everybody knows he’s a spy. Every bartender in the world offers him martinis that are shaken, not stirred. What kind of serious spy is recognized everywhere he goes? It’s outrageous. So you have to treat the humor outrageously as well.”
May his soul rest in peace.
