Pierce Brosnan Pays Tribute to Roger Moore: ‘A Magnificent Actor’

Pierce Brosnan:

Sean Connery had set the bar high, and George Lazenby, with mighty flair and a valiant heart, had given it his best. Now it was Roger’s turn. He knew his time was now, and he reigned over seven movies as James Bond with exceptional skill and comic timing laced with a stiletto vengeance. He knew his comedy, he knew who he was and he played onstage and off with an easy grace and charm. He knew that we knew.

“He knew that we knew” is the phrase I’ve been searching for for years to describe Roger Moore’s take on Bond. Just perfect.
