Roger Moore and Jane Seymour together
I am devastated to learn of Roger Moore’s passing. The first leading role I ever had as a Bond girl was such a new and frightening world and Roger held my hand and guided me through every process. He taught me about work ethic and humility. He was so funny, kind and thoughtful to everyone around him and in that Roger taught me what a movie star really was and should be. Through his lifelong work with UNICEF he showed me the true meaning of being a humanitarian and giving back. He was my Bond. - Jane Seymour

Moore and Seymour starred in just one Bond film together (Moore played the iconic character for seven films), but the late actor clearly had a profound impact on the actress in many ways. Seymour pointed to his generosity, impossibly great manners and all-around good-heartedness as the ways in which he inspired her to be a better person.

"He was so funny, kind and thoughtful to everyone around him and in that Roger taught me what a movie star really was and should be," she continued. "Through his lifelong work with UNICEF he showed me the true meaning of being a humanitarian and giving back."

"He was my Bond," she finished.

Roger Moore is survived by his wife, Kristina Tholstrup, and his three children, Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian. For more on his iconic career, click here.
