Now reading: Roger Moore | My Word is My Bond - The Autobiography (2008)

The quintessential suave hero, Roger Moore has had an extraordinary career that has spanned seven decades, from early television to the golden age of Hollywood and on to international superstardom. Dashing, handsome and every inch the archetypal English gentleman, he is unforgettable as The Saint, as Lord Brett Sinclair in “The Persuaders!” and, of course, as James Bond, making seven blockbusting films as arguably the most debonair of the 007s. For the first time, Roger shares his recollections of playing some of the world’s most famous roles alongside a host of legendary stars. It features myriad stories from his personal life - from his childhood in London and experiences during the Second World War, to the happy and turbulent times in his later life. Along with anecdotes about his encounters with the stars and his wonderful memories from the heyday of Hollywood, “My Word is My Bond” is as frank, funny and disarmingly charming as the legend himself.

MANDATORY CREDIT: Tussauds. Just days after his thirty eighth birthday and hot on the heels of an Emmy nomination for his role in Sherlock, Madame Tussauds London announces that one of the most exciting and talked about acting talents of his generation, Benedict Cumberbatch, will be honoured with a wax figure at the world famous attraction later this year. Benedict’s figure will be ‘premiere ready’, showing the actor looking impeccably groomed in a stylish dark suit. Work on the figure is well underway, and the actor has been heavily involved with the creation process. Benedict has given two sittings for Madame Tussauds London’s talented studios team, during which hundreds of precise measurements and numerous photographs were captured to be used by the sculptors and artists. “Finally I can photobomb myself!” joked Cumberbatch. “What a weird and wonderful compliment to be included in the ranks of talent already committed to wax. I’ve been accused of being wooden in my work but never waxy!
