Richard Graydon, a stuntman who appeared in ten James Bond films, has died at the age of 92.

Graydon doubled for 007s George Lazenby and Roger Moore, and also had small acting roles in a number of the Bond films.

The former jockey's film career began in 1952's The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men, where he played one of the Merrie Men.

One of his most famous scenes in the Bond franchise was the cable car sequence from Moonraker, when Graydon doubled for Moore during a fight with the villainous Jaws.

In Octopussy, he was also shot out of a cannon at the circus, and further slid down a chain attached to an aerial tram which was dangling over an abyss in On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

He also performed or coordinated stunts in Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, A Passage to India, The Man Who Fell to Earth »
