    2020 was bad, 2021 is just weird.

    This is an odd turn of events. But for her sake I hope she can pull through..

    She was my first "Bond girl crush," as AVTAK was the first Bond film I saw, back when I was seven. When I used to act out my own 007 adventures in my back yard, "Stacy Sutton" was always my imaginary female companion.
    I love this story. When I was a kid, I used to play "Bond film" as well. I had a hula hoop that I used for the gunbarrel. The bad guy was usually an evil industrialist.

    She gave that character a heart that wasn't necessarily there on the page, and she still remains the most "normal" of all Bond women, the only one in the whole series (in my opinion) who seems like you could actually meet and date in real life.
    I agree with this. Stacey is a very warm, down-to-earth character. And the character works well with Roger's Bond.


    I hope Tanya Roberts recovers from her condition.

    Not even a full week into the new year and it’s already getting weird.

    Man, her boyfriend looks like some hobo. Surely Tanya could have done better than this guy. I mean I don’t know anything about him but going by appearances alone... YIKES!!

    Anyone remember the ending to LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN? I’m just saying, somebody should check into Sir Sean’s resting place...

    Wait what? Wow, what a sinister story. In any case, I hope she'll recover.

    Yeah, don't know how a woman like Tanya ended up with someone like that...

    Get well soon.

    I think the boyfriend maybe in line for a Golden Raspberry given his performance in that video.

    He looks like some sweaty guy who works the burger grill. Still don’t know how he ended up with Tanya. Sheesh!!

    He looks like the guy who doesn’t think he’ll ever get any girl, period. But then somehow ends up with a Bond girl. Like something that only happens in a dream. And then of course you wake up. LOL!

    Sadly it seems that Tanya Roberts died for real last night, aged 65. The source is TMZ again so make of that what you will:

    Yes, seems she has definitively died as of last night. Terrible rollercoaster with an awful ending. RIP Tanya.

    Yes, it was a real up and down ending. Her Wikipedia page hasn't been updated yet but I suppose it's only a matter of time. We were told she was still very ill and that her condition was described as "dire" so it didn't look that great for her.

    It's sad to have the hope that she might recover snatched away so quickly again.

    That was my thought last night - even if he was mistaken, her condition didn't sound like it was going to get much better. So awful.

    Yes, there wasn't much room for rejoicing as she still sounded very ill and on the brink of death. It was of course a big surprise and relief to hear she was still alive though. There was still a glimmer of hope that she might eventually pull through. Unfortunately that too has been dashed now.

    Wine with Stacey never sounded so sad.



    Rest in peace, Tanya :(

    So Sad, especially for her friends and family.

    She is also, the first major "Bond Girl" of the Moore era to pass away.
    RIP. Ms. Roberts.....and thanks.

    I never appreciated her contribution to Bond so much before now.

    Yes, I was thinking that myself and I believe she was the second youngest (after Carole Bouquet) Moore Bond Girl to boot which makes it all the more unexpected. You just never know in life, sadly.

    If she's really dead my sincere condolences to the family, what a strange affair to be honest. I do hope she's still alive. :x

    That is a great loss as her Bond character was actually quite easy to remember, love her or hate her. She was bloody great in Sheena, love that movie, should have had some sequels in my humble opinion.

    May she rest in peace.
