Roger Moore: Russell Crowe, Paul McCartney and other celebs pay tributes to 'the spy we loved'
Roger Moore passed away on 23 May, 2017 after a short battle with cancer.
The actor cum philanthropist was just a few months short of turning 90 and was most famous for his role as the suave spy James Bond.
He was the oldest to play Bond, the longest serving Bond (twelve years and seven films) and although one would think of him as the perpetual second favourite Bond on everybody’s list, he was twice voted ‘Best Bond'
Celebrities world over have tweeted out their condolences at the loss of one of the most iconic movie stars.
Here is a look at some of their heartfelt messages
