I grew up watching Roger Moore on the big screen as secret agent 007, James Bond. It may not be the popular opinion (but is anything I ever do in the popular opinion – NO! and good for me!), but Roger Moore is my favorite James Bond! Don’t get me wrong, I love all of the films. Because my life is crazy and amazing, I once worked for MGM Studios managing the James Bond film franchise in regards to worldwide television sales. It’s long and complicated to explain it further, but let’s just say that if you watched a James Bond film on television in the 2000s, there’s a good chance I had a little something to do with it! In those days, the James Bond film library was the most successful film franchise in cinema history and that title now belongs to another beloved series to me – Harry Potter. Meeting Roger Moore was certainly a thrill for me and when he signed this autograph for me, it was not shaken or stirred. Happy birthday secret agent man!
