Sir Roger passed away on Tuesday at the age of 89, following a short battle with cancer.Tributes from fellow James Bond actors have poured in and now the original star himself has spoken out.
Sir Sean released a statement to Entertainment Weekly, fondly remembering his long friendship with his fellow knight.
It read: “I was very sad to hear of Roger’s passing.”
Sir Sean continued: “We had an unusually long relationship, by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter. I will miss him.”
Connery passed on the Bond baton to Moore in 1973 after starring in six 007 movies.
Meanwhile Pierce Brosnan called Sir Roger “magnificent” and Daniel Craig made reference to his 1977 film The Spy Who Loved Me, writing “Nobody Does It Better.”
