Roger Moore Facts
He never drove the most famous of all James Bond cars in a Bond film i.e. a 1964 silver birch Aston Martin DB5 or any other Aston Martin model. The DB5 was made famous by the Sean Connery James Bond movies Goldfinger (1964) and then Thunderball (1965) with later models appearing in some subsequent Bond pictures. However, Moore, who played James Bond seven times, has only ever been seen on screen with this make once and that was in The Cannonball Run (1981) where he self-parodies his James Bond persona. In this movie, the DB5's license plate number was 6633PP.

Intended For Your Eyes Only (1981) to be his final Bond movie, since he was nearly 54.

In 1964, eight years before he took over the movie role, Moore played James Bond in a hilarious sketch on the BBC comedy show, "Mainly Millicent." In the sketch, Bond is on holiday at a resort, when he encounters a female Russian spy (played by Millicent Martin, the star of the show), who is also on holiday. Bond and the female spy spend the sketch trying to do each other in. The sketch is included in the "Live and Let Die" Ultimate Edition DVD.
