Sir Roger Moore passed away in Switzerland following a short battle with cancer, aged 89.
Moore was the longest serving Bond, having played the famous spy in seven films. He played a big part in turning the series into one of Hollywood's longest and most valuable franchises. The franchise continues to be one of the industry's biggest money spinners, grossing in excess of $7 billion. "Skyfall," released in 2012, alone made a cool $1.1 billion.
Sir Roger Moore also played Simon Templar in television series The Saint between 1962 and 1969.
