Life of Sir Roger Moore

To the world, throughout the 60s, 70s, and 80s, Roger Moore was the epitome of the perfect English gentleman.

Born n in 1927 in Stockwell, south London, Roger Moore was the only child of George Moore, a police constable at Bow Street, and his wife Lily, the daughter of an Army Sergeant Major. At 15, Roger Moore joined a job as an apprentice cartoonist with an animation film company.  A talented cartoonist, Moore was sacked when he made a mistake over some animation cells.

Next, he got a job of a spear-carrying Roman soldier and was spotted by the director Brian Desmond Hurst, not for any acting qualities but for the multitude of female admirers he attracted off-camera. Sensing some kind of potential, Hurst offered to pay Moore’s fees at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

Here are some of the most memorable films performed by Sir Roger Moore:
