Creator: Roger Moore

SIR Roger Moore, thank you.

Roger Moore was first and foremost known for the Television series The Saint...

Wait, what? That's not why you actually clicked this page, did you.

Tough.

Born October 14th 1927, he is the Quintessential British Gentleman who first dabbled in the TV series Maverick as Beauregard Maverick, one of the interchangable brothers for which the series was well known for. He also headlined a version of Ivanhoe. As previously mentioned, his role on The Saint got him his biggest role for which many people still know him to this day:

Bond, James Bond.

Roger Moore's relationship with the series started with Live and Let Die and lasted until A View to a Kill. He was 45 when he started out, almost 58 when he wrapped things up, tying Sean Connery for the number of appearances in the role (despite one of Sir Sean's not being a true sequel but let's not go there) making Sir Roger THE longest lasting James Bond to date! (At the time of writing, it's known that Daniel Craig has been signed on for more movies, but uncertain as to how many and when they will be released.)

Unfortunately Sir Roger's affection for the role comes and goes. It seems on one hand he loved the job, but on the other hand a great deal of I Am Not Spock feedback came from him. Reportedly, "Who's the best Bond!?" questions tend to leave a sour taste in his mouth because it's such a Base Breaker being him (despite, you know, George Lazenby already having been there).

Nowadays doesn't act much, but, according to his IMDB page, lends his voice for things more than he'd appear on screen, and seems all right with doing a cameo here and there. However, he's been putting his celebrity to good use in humanitarian activities (most notably as a UNICEF ambassador), earning a knighthood in the process. He also filmed a role in the pilot for a new series based on The Saint, after having provided a voiceover for the ill-fated 1990s movie version.
