James Bond And Cigars

Roger Moore, universally celebrated as the quintessential Agent 007, enthralled audiences worldwide. His portrayal of the iconic British secret agent James Bond in the Eon Productions film series was unparalleled. From 1973 to 1985, he starred in seven Bond films, ranging from Live and Let Die to A View to a Kill, marking the longest tenure in this role. Dive into the world of James Bond and cigars with our tribute to Roger Moore, celebrating his legendary portrayal of 007 and his exquisite taste in premium cigars.

Prior to becoming Bond, Moore charmed viewers as the dashing Simon Templar in The Saint (1962–1969), and appeared in notable American series like Maverick and The Persuaders!. Furthermore, his acting career extended beyond Bond, culminating in a final screen appearance in a 2017 television film for a new Saint series.

In addition to his acting, Moore was deeply committed to philanthropy. Notably, he served as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and was knighted in 2003 for his charitable efforts. Additionally, he earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was honoured as a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters by France.

Moore’s portrayal of Bond was distinctively lighthearted. He famously said, “I’m not that cold-blooded killer type. Which is why I play it mostly for laughs.” This personal charm extended to his preferences off-screen, especially his fondness for cigars. As a regular cigar enthusiast, he even included unlimited Montecristo cigars in his Bond contracts.

Today, Moore’s legacy as a pop culture icon shines brightly. His suave interpretation of Bond and passion for life’s finer pleasures, such as premium cigars, continue to inspire and resonate with fans across the globe.
