Sir Roger Moore Is "One Lucky Bastard"

Sir Roger Moore was interviewed by Kirsty Nutkins at the British newspaper the Express about his new book, called Last Man Standing in the UK and One Lucky Bastard in the US.

Best known for playing James Bond, Sir Roger Moore was the longest-serving 007, starring in seven films between 1973 and 1985. He also appeared in TV series such as The Saint and The Persuaders!

The 86 year old retired from acting in 2009 and has since written two books – the latest, Last Man Standing: Tales From Tinseltown, has just been published. Roger and his wife Kristina ‘Kiki’ Tholstrup divide their time between their homes in Monaco and Switzerland. 

Your new book features colourful tales from your life in showbiz. Can you reveal any juicy stories?

If I did you wouldn’t buy the book!

Note: Although I disliked Sir Roger Moore's lightweight performance as James Bond, I was a huge fan of his when I was a teenager and he was so cool as The Saint on TV. I also liked him in The Persuaders!

And, I have to admit, his James Bond films were good, lighthearted spy films. I simply preferred to see Ian Fleming's iconic James Bond character portrayed in a darker light in a true thriller.

I've read Sir Roger Moore's earlier books and found them to be intelligent, amusing, and self-deprecating -  like the author himself.
