Roger Moore’s ‘very unusual’ generosity on James Bond set and to sick Audrey Hepburn

Moore then immediately introduced himself to the group with great charm in a situation where anyone else would probably have felt very frustrated.

The Bond star asked: “Where are you from? Nice to meet you.”

Broccoli remembered: “I was just like ‘Wow.’ It was very unusual. These films were so impactful to him. He travelled all over the world and obviously saw both sides of life.”

Moore would go on to take up significant charity work and it all began as a favour to a fellow Hollywood star in August 1991.
