Jane Seymour

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.

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli

“We are heartbroken at the news of Sir Roger Moore’s passing. On the screen, he reinvented the role of James Bond with tremendous skill, charisma and humour. In real life, he was a genuine hero working as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for many years dedicating his life to alleviating the suffering of children all over the world. He was a loyal and beloved friend and his legacy shall live on through his films and the millions of lives he touched. We shall miss him enormously. Our love and thoughts are with Deborah, Geoffrey, Christian his grandchildren and his wife Kristina.”

UNICEF

"The world has lost one of its great champions for children — and the entire UNICEF family has lost a great friend. In his most famous roles as an actor, Sir Roger was the epitome of cool sophistication; but in his work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, he was a passionate — and highly persuasive — advocate for children. He once said that it was up to all of us to give children a more peaceful future. Together with Lady Kristina, he worked very hard to do so."
UNICEF executive director Anthony Lake

Sir Sean Connery

Sean Connery spoke to EW: “I was very sad to hear of Roger’s passing. We had an unusually long relationship, by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter. I will miss him.”

No Words To Say, Rest In Peace Sir Roger Moore, I learn the driving skills from your 3rd Bond movie with the Lotus Esprit. My Heartfelt Condolence To Your Family Sir
I'm extremely sad with this news. Roger Moore was a James Bond wonderful. "Nobody does It better". Rest in Peace Sir Roger Moore, Sir James Bond.
You were the 007 for my generation, and my hero growing up. I wore my hair like you, tried to dress like you...everything. Your passing has affected me profoundly. RIP, Sir Roger.
We are sorry to hear of the passing of Sir Roger Moore. My wife and I saw him last November in the Grand Opera House in Belfast. We thoroughly enjoyed the show and learned a little more of the man that for me WAS ..........James Bond. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family at this very sad and difficult time.
Condolences to Roger Moore's family and friends. May he rest in peace. (In Double O Heaven) ~Your fans at Spy Gadget Warehouse.com
You were the greatest in any endeavor you took on Sir Roger Moore. You are why I had got into the bond series. You did great work for Unicef. You will be deeply missed, but you will live on forever through your films and other works you did. we have dedicated this Roger Moore day in our home.
