3 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

He was just the second man to play James Bond since Sean Connery, and she was a 20-year-old newcomer taking on the mantle of “Bond girl” in her first major role.

But looking back on Live or Let Die some 44 years later, Jane Seymour tells People that despite the pressure on both of them, Sir Roger Moore was always in her corner.

“He was very caring to me because I was a newbie,” the actress, 66, tells People. “I was 20 years old and had never been anywhere or done anything and was terrified of the whole experience, and he literally made jokes around me, »

‘Becoming Bond’ Director Sees George Lazenby and Daniel Craig as Kindred Spirits

23 May 2017 9:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Every serious 007 fan has a particular film that hooked them on the franchise. For Josh Greenbaum, the writer and director of Hulu’s new docudrama “Becoming Bond,” that film was the Pierce Brosnan blockbuster “GoldenEye.”

“That’s the one that did it for me,” says Greenbaum at a premiere screening at Cinefamily. “As many people my age will attest, the Nintendo game version of that film was huge. It took the movie and turned it into a first-person shooter where you could walk around the sets of a real James Bond film and kill your friends.”

Becoming Bond” tells the unlikely story of George Lazenby, a charismatic Australian fashion model who fibbed his way into starring in the 1969 classic “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.” Though many Bond aficionados consider it one of the best entries in the series, Lazenby stunned audiences around the world when he walked away from »

Jane Seymour on "Long Lost Brother" Roger Moore: "He Was Hilarious"

23 May 2017 6:36 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Jane Seymour recalled Roger Moore, with whom she co-starred in 1973’s James Bond movie, Live and Let Die, as a “long lost brother” and described him as being one of the funniest men in her life.

“We used to giggle terribly,” she said.

Moore, who portrayed Bond in seven movies starting with Live and Let Die, died at the age of 89 after a short battle with cancer.

Seymour was 20 when she nabbed the role of Solitaire, a Tarot card-reading psychic working for a Bond villain who loses her virginity to 007.

"Becoming Bond" Screening With George Lazenby: Cinema Retro's Mark Cerulli Reports

19 May 2017 8:08 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

(The new documentary "Becoming Bond" is now showing on the Hulu network.)

By Mark Cerulli

Prior to seeing Josh Greenbaum’s illuminating documentary, Becoming Bond, which premiered on Hulu May 20th, I had dismissed George Lazenby’s mystifying refusal to continue as 007 as just another gullible young actor taking bad career advice; like Tom Selleck passing on Indiana Jones, Travolta nixing Forrest Gump, Thomas Jane handing Don Draper to Jon Hamm… but there’s more to it than that, a lot more as it turns out.

Cleverly combining interview footage of Lazenby, still hale and hearty at 77, with well-staged recreations, Becoming Bond dives deep into this complicated and impulsive star to understand How he could casually dump one of the most coveted roles in the history of film. As it turns out, that decision is symbolic of who George Lazenby really is: intelligent, charming, naïve but most of all, independent. »

Film Review: ‘Becoming Bond’

17 May 2017 9:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An Australian car mechanic turned male model, George Lazenby had the hardest job of any James Bond actor: He had to follow Sean Connery. Lazenby made just one 007 movie, 1969’s “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” and then walked away from the role that would have made him one of the world’s biggest stars. Why did he quit? Or was he fired? And just who was the mysterious man behind the mole? Intimate, irreverent and at times laugh-out-loud funny, Josh Greenbaum’s made-for-Hulu documentary “Becoming Bond” answers all these questions and more in the space of 92 mind-blowing minutes.

Part of the James Bond allure has always been the character’s status as a connoisseur, and to this day, some fans consider Lazenby to be the best Bond — an opinion that is empirically untrue for myriad reasons (not least of which is the fact that his dialogue had to be »

Random Roles: Jane Seymour on how Dr. Quinn was not supposed to last and her “whole new career” in comedy

16 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.

The actor: Since making her film debut in 1969, Jane Seymour has experienced a number of career renaissances and repeatedly managed to reinvent herself as an actor, something that happens all too infrequently in Hollywood. While you can attribute part of her success to her ability to bounce between high drama and lowbrow comedy seemingly without blinking an eye, it’s just as likely because she doesn’t like to lose. With a filmography that includes spies (Live And Let Die), Cylons (Battlestar Galactica), century-spanning romance (Somewhere In Time), frat-boy comedy (Wedding Crashers), and life in a frontier town (Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman), Seymour keeps audiences guessing as to where she’s going to turn up next.

Film Review: Adam Sandler’s ‘Sandy Wexler’

15 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Depending on whether you love or hate Adam Sandler movies, you can hold old-school talent manager Sandy Wernick at least partly accountable for having encouraged his career. Wernick signed Sandler at age 22, three years before “Saturday Night Live” snatched up the young comedian and made him a star, and Sandler has remained loyal ever since — so much so that he’s built his latest sketch-stretched-far-past-the-breaking-point, “Sandy Wexler,” as an in-joke homage to his longtime manager.

Sandler repays those years of service not with a big sloppy kiss of a movie, but rather a feature-length roast (though the word “sloppy” still applies) — one that amplifies the man’s nasal voice and off-putting fake laugh into an elaborate caricature of a hopelessly pathetic bottom-feeder. The roast approach isn’t a bad way to go per se, except that somewhere along the way, this project’s too-many-cooks left out the most important ingredient: »
