    TCM (Turner Classic Movies in the US/Canada) has posted their annual “remembrances” for 2020. Among the actors presented are Bond alumni:

    Peter Lamont
    Diana Rigg
    Honor Blackman
    Michael Lonsdale
    Sean Connery
    Max von Sydow

    This has been an all-star year for death, sadly.

    TCM did a very good job with this--Sean gets three shots (more than anyone besides Olivia de Havilland) and Honor Blackman ingeniously follows right afterward. Diana's image is from the barn scene in OHMSS and well chosen. The passing of Olivia and Sean means the age of classic, larger-than-life stars is truly past.

    Sad news to begin 2021 with the passing of former Bond girl Tanya Roberts.
    Ms.Roberts appeared opposite Roger Moore in 1985's A View To A Kill.
    Whilst not my favourite Bond girl, she was a very attractive actress, who this Bond fan was rather taken with as a young man. RIP.

    Oh that’s too sad. She was always active on social media. On Saturdays she would talk to fans. In her prime, she would have made a great Supergirl. One of my favorites!

    No word yet about the cause of death. But this is a major shock.

    Just found out the news about Tanya Roberts, wow... 65 years old is still terribly young. She was stunning and seemed very sweet as a person.

    RIP.

    Excellent point @Gatecrasher. While "Stacy" is far from my favorite Bond Girl, from various interviews she conducted over the years, Ms. Roberts always came across as a warm person and very down to earth. I read somewhat that she actually left "That 70's Show" to take care of her husband who was ill,

    If Tanya had been allowed to play Stacy similar to her more streetwise Julie Rogers character in 'Charlie's Angels' we could have had something special.

    RIP Tanya, such a ridiculously and unfair young age to go.

    Never expected her to be the next. She was great in AVTAK.

    Oh no, that's really sad. Far too young to go. She made a likeable Stacey, and seemed to be very likeable in real life too.

    RIP Tanya :(

    RIP Tanya Roberts.

    (This Craig fansite cannot report on Tanya Robert's death without getting into "Moores age" - embarrassing.)

    Sad and shocking news about the death of Tanya Roberts. I always liked her in AVTAK and she seemed like a nice person too. She invited me to a Zoom appearance on Twitter last year but I didn't get a chance to attend sadly.

    @BobGoran
    You're new here. This is your first post. And yet you feel the need to start with a ludicrous comment on this forum and its members. So if you have an actual point to make about this being a "Craig fansite", perhaps you can find the proper thread for that, after properly introducing yourself, which is what normal people do. You see, what's truly embarrassing is someone dropping by for the first time, only to give us all the finger. That spells 'troll', not 'fan'; 'troublemaker', not 'contributor'.

    Not my favourite Bond Girl, or Angel, but she was very attractive, striking eyes. Sounds like whatever the cause was, it was sudden.

    RIP

    Quite saddened and shocked to hear this. She had live video chats with her fans the past several months, if not longer. Wow.
    Always been a fan of Stacey Sutton. Tanya Roberts was amazing. RIP.

    This one feels very odd. Because Bond stars are known to live long. A very beautiful Bond girl she was and as mentioned previously, she had gorgeous eyes. Rest her gentle soul.

    In the obituary on the main page, it says that the cause of death is not known, but "was not covid19 related". There is surely thousands of things her death wasn t related to, so why the need to mention this virus in a news piece that has nothing to do with it?

    Because that is automatically the immediate question many will ask whenever someone dies these days. They're just staying ahead of speculation.

    Didn t cross my mind at all. I find it weird.

    Totally shocked to see the passing of the beautiful Tanya Roberts! Had the great fortune to meet her a number of years ago. She was so sweet and talkative, and i have a photo with her to cherish forever too.

    RIP Tanya Roberts.

    While I'm not familiar with anything Tanya Roberts did outside of Bond, it's heartbreaking to loose someone this soon. My thoughts are with her family and friends. AVTAK was the first Bond movie I ever saw, so Tanya Roberts was the first main Bond girl. Feels strange having lost that.

    Tanya's passing is very shocking. I've always loved AVTAK and really enjoyed her in That 70's Show. So sad. RIP, Tanya.
