Sir Roger George Moore died at 89 following, what his family described as, ""a short but brave battle with cancer".

The always dapper actor created the transatlantic role of Simon "The Saint" Templar from 1962 to 69 and replaced Sean Connery from 1973 to 85 as everyone's favorite British spy. Yet the double-oh with the most movies under his Q-created belt was most proud of his longtime work UNICEF's goodwill ambassador.
