The first leading role I ever had as a Bond girl was such a new and frightening world and Roger held my hand and guided me through every process.

He taught me about work ethic and humility. He was so funny, kind and thoughtful to everyone around him and in that Roger taught me what a movie star really was and should be. 

Through his lifelong work with UNICEF he showed me the true meaning of being a humanitarian and giving back. He was my Bond."
Jane Seymour (Solitaire in "Live and Let Die", 1973)

"My Bond is gone, am filled with great sadness. Roger was the epitome of Bond, witty, sophisticated, elegant, funny. Rip."
Britt Ekland (Mary Goodnight in "The Man with the Golden Gun", 1974)

He always had a joke to tell and was a pleasure to work with, he was a terrific guy."

007 Food: Onion bhajjis, Lamb Korma with Bombay potatoes, chapatis and a mix of relishes ranging from mango chutney to cucumber raita, finishing with plates of sticky sweet Jalebi

Food: Onion bhajjis, Lamb Korma with Bombay potatoes, chapatis and a mix of relishes ranging from mango chutney to cucumber raita, finishing with plates of sticky sweet Jalebi
Bond book appearance: SeaFire (1994)
Experience of 007 Travelers: Self-made


”They went down the road to a little Indian restaurant where they gorged themselves on onion bhajjis, Lamb Korma with Bombay potatoes, chapatis and a mix of relishes ranging from mango chutney to cucumber raita, finishing with plates of sticky sweet Jalebi. ”At least we’ll only taste each other,” Flicka said as they walked back to the hotel. From their room they rang down to room service where Bond ordered a large pot of coffee, specifying that he wanted it freshly brewed and piping hot, hinting that it would be sent back if it was not to his liking. Saturday nights in provincial British hotels – even in a great university city – often brought out the worst in room service. This time it worked and the coffee was excellent. They drank it together as they sat at one small desk and worked on the note for Tarn.”
