Former “James Bond” actor Sir Roger Moore has died in Switzerland after a short battle with cancer, his family said Tuesday in a statement posted to Twitter.

Moore was 89.

“It is with a heavy heart that we must announce our loving father, Sir Roger Moore, has passed away today in Switzerland after a short but brave battle with cancer,” his family’s statement read. “The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone.”

After replacing Sean Connery in the “James Bond” films, Moore played the infamous British spy from 1973 until 1985. He made his 007 debut in the film “Live and Let Die,” and last appeared as the suave secret agent in “A View to a Kill.”
