RIP: Former James Bond actress Tanya Roberts has died


The actress – who starred alongside late former 007 Sir Roger Moore as Stacey Sutton in 1985’s ‘A View to a Kill’ – gave up the ghost in hospital in California on Sunday after she reportedly “collapsed” whilst walking her dog on Christmas Eve .

Her rep told TMZ that the screen star was “put on a ventilator, but never got better”.

Mike Pingel, her longtime rep and friend, also told The Hollywood Reporter: “I’m devastated. She was brilliant and delightful and that i desire a light-weight has been removed . to mention she was an angel would be at the highest of the list. She was the sweetest person you’d ever meet and had an enormous heart. She loved her fans, and that i don’t think she realised what proportion she meant to them.”

As well as playing a Bond girl, Tanya also appeared on the long-lasting TV series ‘Charlie’s Angels’ as Julie Rogers, a task she held for a year.

She then went on to land the a part of Midge Pinciotti on ‘That ’70s Show’ between 1998 and 2001, and in 2004.

Tanya – who was born Victoria Leigh Blum – was a model before she turned to acting, having starred in TV ads before she landed her first role within the 1975 horror ‘Forced Entry’.

In 1982, Tanya posed for Playboy. The late star is survived by her husband Lance and her sister Barbara Chase.
