James Bond And Cigars With Roger Moore

Roger Moore was known for his work as the Agent 007 superspy.

He was the third actor to portray fictional British secret agent James Bond in the Eon Productions film series, playing the character in seven feature films between 1973 and 1985. Moore’s seven appearances as Bond, from Live and Let Die to A View to a Kill, are the most of any actor in the Eon-produced entries.

On television, Moore played the lead role of Simon Templar, the title character in the British mystery thriller series The Saint (1962–1969). He also had roles in American series, including Beau Maverick on the Western Maverick (1960–1961), in which he replaced James Garner as the lead, and a co-lead, with Tony Curtis, in the action-comedy The Persuaders! (1971–1972).

Continuing to act on screen in the decades after his retirement from the Bond franchise, Moore’s final appearance was in a pilot for a new Saint series that became a 2017 television film.

Moore was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 1991 and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2003 for services to charity. In 2007, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his contributions to the film industry. He was made a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government in 2008.

As noted by a profile by The Hollywood Reporter, Moore was well aware of his own unique take on Bond. “My personality is entirely different than previous Bonds,” he said. “I’m not that cold-blooded killer type. Which is why I play it mostly for laughs.”

Moore had unique preferences on set, ones that could even have influenced the way he played Bond. The publication notes that Moore enjoyed cigars on a regular basis, and as part of his contract, he was reportedly given unlimited Montecristo cigars during production.

A pop culture icon who remained in the spotlight until his death, Moore was always eager to talk about the role that made him a superstar. Moore died in 2017 at the age of 89, marking the end of an era. Still, his contributions to the world of the film remain impressive, with thousands of fans binge-watching Moore’s classic Bond movies.
