Sir Roger George Moore was an English actor best known for playing British secret agent James Bond in seven feature films. He was the longest-serving ‘Bond’ in the history of ‘James Bond’ movies; he portrayed James Bond in the movies from 1973 to 1985. Roger Moore started his career with Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in England and appeared in smalltime roles in movies but had to take a break from that as he was conscripted for national service shortly after the end of the Second World War. He returned back to entertainment and started his modeling career by print modeling for advertisements, which helped him get supporting roles in some big budget movies. It was with ‘Ivanhoe’ on the British television that Moore gained some fame for the first time but he did not taste international success until ‘The Saint’ in the ‘60s. He continued to do television and movies and it was in 1973 that he was cast as ‘James Bond’ for the first time, after Sean Connery stepped down from it.
