Pierce Brosnan, who played 007 in 4 films from 1995 to 2002, said Moore had been a big part of his life growing up and had helped “lead the way” for Brosnan himself to portray Bond.

“The world will miss you and your unique sense of humor for years to come,” Brosnan wrote.

Wilson of Eon Productions said Moore had “reinvented the role of James Bond with tremendous skill, charisma and humor” and said he was also a genuine hero in real life for his work with UNICEF. Broccoli and Wilson called Moore “a loyal and beloved friend and his legacy shall live on through his films and millions of lives he touched.”
