Roger Moore Biography
Suave, blue-eyed and British, Roger Moore moved to the United States in 1953 and made his first mark in the TV western Maverick (replacing James Garner in 1959). Even more successful was his smooth portrayal of Simon Templar in the 1960s series The Saint. Gentlemanly and roguish, Moore took over from Sean Connery as James Bond in 1972 and eventually became the longest-running Bond of all time, starring in of the films: Live and Let Die (1973), The Man With the Golden Gun (1974), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979), For Your Eyes Only (1981), Octopussy (1983), and A View To a Kill (1985). Moore made fewer films in the 1990s, keeping busy with charity work on behalf of UNICEF; he succeeded Audrey Hepburn as the organization’s Special Representative for the Film Arts.
