Happy Birthday To A Saint And 007
There have been a number of celebrities who have celebrated their birthdays during the “Frog Days of Fall”, and today, one of the former James Bonds, Sir. Roger Moore is 84 years old. Moore was the third James Bond in the continuing film series, taking over from Sean Connery and George Lanzenby (who?) who did one Bond film.
The suave, sophisticated Britisher, Roger Moore starred in a number of TV shows, including the 1950s/60s western “Maverick”, and a 1970s detective show co-starring the late Tony Curtis called: “The Persuaders”.
Here’s a brief bio courtesy of Wikipedia:
Sir Roger George Moore KBE (born 14 October 1927), is an English actor, perhaps best known for portraying British secret agent James Bond in seven films from 1973 to 1985. He also portrayed Simon Templar in the long-running British television series The Saint.
His post-Bond acting career has been light, though most of his career post-Bond has been devoted to UNICEF.
