Sad to hear that, and at only 65.

Sad news indeed, RIP Tanya Roberts

Damn, RIP Tanya  ajb007/frown  It really hasn't been a good period for Bond alumni.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

Sad news. Tanya Roberts was stunningly beautiful in AVTAK and very funny in That 70's Show.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

Not exactly the greatest Bond lady ever ("JAMES!! OOOOooooohhh JAMES!! EEEEeeeee!!!") but she sounded like a genuinely nice person and 65 seems so shockingly young still. Allegedly she had some kind of seizure and collapse after walking her dogs....  ajb007/frown  ajb007/crap

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

So TMZ (not exactly top tier journalism) are now reporting Robert’s rep has said she is still alive? Confused ajb007/confused

And apparently, it was Tanya's husband that told the rep she was dead in the first place...you would think he'd know what's actually going on  ajb007/insane

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

Doesn’t really add up to be honest, but at least she is still with us, though she doesn’t sound very well at all. Fingers crossed she makes a full recovery. No time to die, Tanya.

235

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

The latest from the publication that has been keeping us abreast of her situation says that she died last night.

As sad as her death is sometimes people die relative young , even Bond stars

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

Tanya Roberts is the only notable celebrity I knew I shared the same birthday on, Oct 15 and she was just a day apart with Roger who was Oct 14.

What's even sadder for me is that I actually liked her in A View To a Kill, she gave the movie a nice vibe I enjoyed till the end and also while she did appear a little naive about the production of the movie back then according to Lois Maxwell with her shipping make up to the thing...from everything I've seen she was a genuinely nice person. I'm not old enough to have seen her in Charlie's Angels but that must suck even more for some of you. I do remember her quite vividly from that 70s show too, was basically what got me to watching the reruns years ago.

It's a big blow to the Bond alumni imo. Just 65. Big shame. I think I have to rewatch AVTAK one of these days; was one of my favorite 80s Bonds for a long time. Probably kinda need it.

a reasonable rate of return

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

I was really sorry to hear about both Sir Sean Connery  and Peter Lamont.  Connery was my introduction to James Bond when my father let watch Dr. No on VHS when I was young. He quickly become one of my all time favorite actors thanks his vast body of work from Bond to The Man Who Would Be King, A Bridge Too Far, Highlander, The Untouchable's, Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade,  The Hunt For Red October, The Rock, Dragonheart, Entrapment and Finding Forester.  He really did make any movie he was in enjoyable even if the script was not always the best one around.

Peter Lamont like Ken Adam before him was a truly talented artist in the production design field, starting his work as a Draughtsman on Goldfinger and later working up to his post as Production Designer.  I always looked forward to seeing his sets on film during his time with the series. May they both RIP.

Director Michael Apted has died.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

RIP, Mr Apted. I've loved TWINE since the moment I saw it.

241

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

I’m saddened to hear of Apted’s death. I think he’s the most talented director of the Brosnan era and got such an excellent performance from Brosnan. He seemed to know what he was doing with Bond, and it’s a shame he only did one. TWINE was able to introduce new ideas to the Bond films that have been present ever since, but the classic Bond feel is always there. He would have been great with Craig.

Felt like a modern Peter Hunt in OHMSS and a bit more polished at that.
RIP
