Stars pay tribute to 'James Bond' star Roger Moore

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Following the death of Roger Moore, who was best known for being one of the actors to play James Bond, a number of stars paid their respects on social media. Moore died on Tuesday, May 23, after battling cancer.

The British actor played the iconic James Bond role in a record number of 7 films: Live and Let Die (1973), The Man With the Golden Gun (1974), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979), For Your Eyes Only (1981), Octopussy (1983), and A View to a Kill (1985).

In a statement to EW, Sean Connery, who originated James Bond in the first films said:  “I was very sad to hear of Roger’s passing. We had an unusually long relationship, by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter. I will miss him.”

Pierce Brosnan, who played Bond in 4 films sent a statement to People saying: “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,” the statement read. “He saved the world seven times and then went on to become an even greater man working to ‘save the children’ with UNICEF.”

He also posted a photo of him and the late actor on his social media accounts.

"Dear Sir Roger Moore, It is indeed with a heavy heart that I hear the news of your passing this morning. You were a big part of my life, from The Saint to James Bond.. .you were a magnificent James Bond and one that lead the way for me, the world will miss you and your unique sense of humor for years to come. My sincerest condolences to your family and children. RIP."
