While he'll no doubt be best remembered for the seven James Bond films he made from 1973 to 1985, Sir Roger Moore – he was knighted in 2003, for his humanitarian work on behalf of UNICEF – also wears many other labels proudly.
He was a young MGM star (opposite the then-equally young Elizabeth Taylor), a TV star and producer (The Saint), an author twice over (a 2008 autobiography, My Word Is My Bond, and the brand-new Bond on Bond: Reflections on 50 Years of James Bond Movies), and a word-class raconteur.
It was in those last two capacities that the London-born Sir Roger, a hale and hearty 85, spent time with PEOPLE in New York this week. Among the many opinions he shared were those on a certain movie franchise.
