Biography

Having found great success on British television as the star of "The Saint" (ITV, 1962-69), Roger Moore was a natural and worthy successor to Sean Connery in the role of super-agent James Bond. Taking on the iconic character with a license to kill for "Live and Let Die" (1973), Moore spent 12 years as the suave, womanizing 007, though for much of that time he heard criticism for his campy, tongue-and-cheek characterization and barbs launched against his acting chops. While it took a few movies for him become comfortable, Moore settled in nicely with "The Spy Who Loved Me" (1977), his best Bond film and one of the greatest in the entire franchise. He followed that with the much-maligned "Moonraker" (1979) and attempted to return to basics with "For Your Eyes Only" (1981). Meanwhile, Moore continued making films outside the Bond universe with "Shout at the Devil" (1976), "Sherlock Holmes in New York" (1977) and "The Cannonball Run" (1981), but nothing elevated him to international acclaim like Ian Fleming's spy. Amidst calls that he was too old for the role, Moore made his last Bond movies, "Octopussy" (1983) and "A View to a Kill" (1985), before settling into an increasingly sporadic schedule that reduced him to a character performer in "Bed & Breakfast" (1992), "Spice World" (1997) and "Boat Trip" (2002). Though sometime dismissed by critics when compared to Connery, Moore made the character his own and earned international fame for one of cinema's most sought-after roles.
