“Being known eternally as James Bond has no downside,” Sir Roger Moore once told The Guardian.

On Wednesday afternoon, the death of James Bond legend and Monaco resident, Sir Roger Moore, was announced by his family via social media. He died Tuesday, May 22.

“It is with a heavy heart that we must announce our loving father, Sir Roger Moore, has passed away today in Switzerland after a short but brave battle with cancer. The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone.”

The five-paragraph statement, signed by Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian, also said, “Thank you Pops for being you, and for being so very special to so many people.”

Immediate reactions on Twitter included Piers Morgan: “Oh no. As if today wasn’t already sad enough. RIP Sir Roger Moore, 89. A wonderful actor & lovely man”, as well Andrew Lloyd Webber, Edgar Wright, and Russell Crowe.
