Roger Moore, the actor who appeared in seven films as James Bond, died in Switzerland after a short battle with cancer. He was 89.
He debuted as Bond in "Live and Let Die" in 1973, which would lead to six other appearances as England's top spy, including "the Spy Who Loved Me" in 1977, "Moonraker" in 1979 and 1981's "For Your Eyes Only", which were all blockbuster hits.

His autobiography, "My Word Is My Bond," was published in 2008; his other books include memoir "One Lucky Bastard" and "Bond on Bond." In recent years he toured with a popular one-man show, "An Evening With Roger Moore."
