Moore was the greatest Bond of his time: Pierce
Pierce Brosnan said actor Roger Moore was the "greatest" James Bond in his era. The 64-year-old actor, who is the fifth star to essay the role of British spy 007, said the late artiste paved the way for other actors to portray Bond on screen, reported People magazine.
"Sir Roger Moore was the greatest Bond of his time. He embraced the role with an easy charm and grace that let us all in on the game. "He saved the world seven times and then went on to become an even greater man working to 'save the children' with UNICEF," Brosnan said. The Goldeneye actor added he was proud to have followed in Moore's footsteps.
"He never forgot the audience and we shall never forget him. I am proud to have followed in your footsteps Sir Roger. My heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and children," he said.
