The names Moore. Sir Roger Moore

He is a spy, a saint, a style icon and an all round superstar. And now Sir Roger Moore is ours for an evening.

The suave English actor and UNICEF ambassador, who played James Bond in six movies over 12 years, will talk about his life and work in the two hour show at the Grand Opera House on Wednesday, September 24.

Sir Roger, now 85, is in York as one of only 12 dates in his 2014 UK tour.

In conversation with Gareth Owen, who has collaborated on several autobiographical books with the actor, he will tell inside stories and anecdotes ranging from his internationally-renowned TV series The Saint and The Persuaders, through to Hollywood blockbusters and, of course, the 007 films.

And lucky audience members will get to quiz the legendary star in a Q&A.

Sir Roger’s career took him from his beginnings in South London as the son of a local policeman to 007 to the toast of Hollywood.

After studying at RADA he became a model, appearing in adverts for knitwear and toothpaste. His first movie role was in the 1945 British film Perfect Strangers.

Still acting today, he is one of the voices of animated movie Gnomes & Trolls 2, due for release in January 2015.

Tickets for An Evening with Sir Roger Moore cost £26.
