Former ‘Bond girl’ Tanya Roberts has died. She was 65.
The actress, noted for her role as the 007 film, A View to Kill, passed away yesterday, but no official cause of death was given.
Roberts collapsed at her California home on Christmas Eve after a morning walk with her dogs, said publicist and friend Mike Pingel. She was taken to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Pingel told CNN, “I’m devastated, I’ve been friends with Tanya for over 20 years. She was full of energy and we always had a wild time together. She was truly an Angel and I will miss her so much.”
Roberts began her career as a model and starred in several popular television shows, including Charlie’s Angels, The Beastmaster and That 70s Show.
However, it was her memorable turn as geologist Stacey Sutton in 1985’s A View to Kill, opposite Bond lead Roger Moore, that she is best remembered for.
