James Bond actors and cast members reflect on the passing of Sir Roger Moore
By MI6 Staff
The passing of Sir Roger Moore sent ripples around the world's media, and it is also perhaps the first time that all surviving James Bond actors have publicly spoken within a 24 hour period.
In a statement issued to the press, Sir Sean Connery said: "I was very sad to hear of Roger’s passing we had an unusually long relationship by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter, I will miss him." George Lazenby said: "I liked Roger, he was a genuine fellow, a really good guy."
Other fellow 007s turned to social media to pass on their condolences, along with some of Sir Roger's co-stars and colleagues through the years. EON Productions issued a joint statement with MGM.
