Choose from his seven films

Following on from his death aged 89, tributes to Roger Moore have poured out from fans and peers alike.

The veteran actor, who played spy James Bond seven times, died in Switzerland following a “short but brave battle with cancer”, it was announced on Tuesday.

The former Unicef ambassador lived in St Mary’s Mount, Wansunt Road in Bexley after marrying Dorothy Squires in 1953.

Speaking in 2014, Sir Roger said he didn’t think he would recognise the borough if he visited nowadays, adding his home in St Mary’s Mount had since been demolished.

After finding success in sixties television series The Saint, Sir Roger reportedly moved to Tunbridge Wells, before later moving to Surrey and then on to Hollywood.

He went on to play Bond for the first time in 1973’s Live and Let Die, going on to star in six more films as 007, earning him the title of longest-running Bond actor.
