    By Matthew Harkin on 2012-06-09

    One of the most popular James Bond actors is set to take to the stage this year, as he sets to promote his new book ‘Bond on Bond’.

    Sir Roger Moore will begin his tour at the Malvern Theatre on Sunday, October 7, and then plays one-night dates at the Rose at Kingston in Surrey (October 14); the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton (October 16); the Bournemouth Pavilion (October 17); Bath’s Theatre Royal (a matinee on October 19); and the Anvil in Basingstoke (October 23). The tour wraps up at the Theatre Royal in Norwich on October 26.

    Interviewed by Gareth Roberts, Moore will be part of a Q&A session, discussing his tenure as James Bond, his roles in The Saint and The Persuaders and will be giving an insight into his remarkable charity work for UNICEF.

    Moore played James Bond for a total of 7 movies, from 1973 – 1985, and is, to this day, the longest serving actor in the role. ‘Bond on Bond’ will feature Moore’s thoughts on the flashy gadgets, fast cars and evil villains that made the Bond series so iconic. It will also serve as a part memoir as Moore reminisces about his own time in the role. The book is set to be released October 4th, coinciding with the franchises 50th Anniversary.
