Roger’s son thinks dad quit 007 at right time

Edmonton Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Roger Moore’s son Ge­of­frey be­lieves his dad made the right de­ci­sion to quit his role as James bond af­ter seven movies.

the ac­tor played 007 from 1973 to 1985, and his por­trayal of the british se­cret ser­vice agent is one of the most cel­e­brated in the his­tory of the fran­chise.

Moore was

58 when he stepped down from the role and, speak­ing to bri­tain’s Daily Mail news­pa­per, Ge­of­frey in­sisted he’s re­lieved his dad made the de­ci­sion, be­cause his on-screen re­la­tion­ships with younger bond girls wouldn’t have aged well as he got older.

“He was kiss­ing lead­ing ladies and they were in their twen­ties,” he said. “Plus, they’d al­ready found a sub­sti­tute.”
