Bond stuntman Terry Richards dies aged 81

25-Jun-2014 • Bond News

British stuntman Terry Richards has died at the age of 81.

Largely uncredited in the Bond series, he performed in "From Russia With Love", "Goldfinger", the 1967 spoof "Casino Royale", "You Only Live Twice", "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", "Tomorrow Never Dies" and "The World Is Not Enough".

On screen, he is most famous for his role as the Cairo Swordsman in "Raiders of the Lost Ark", who is shot dead by Indy.

"He fought Indiana Jones, James Bond, Luke Skywalker and Rambo - there's not many people who can say that," his son Terry Richards Junior told the BBC.

"He was a great character, a good story teller, very charming and full of humour, and was well loved and respected in the film industry," said his family.

Terry Richards died on Saturday 14th June. His funeral is scheduled to take place in Ruislip, north west London.
