1. 'My Word Is My Bond': Sir Roger Moore's Memoirs

    By Devin Zydel on 2008-01-16

    A recent press release has confirmed the title of Sir Roger Moore’s upcoming memoir, My Word Is My Bond.

    Back in October 2007, in a note circulated to several publishers, Sir Roger announced plans to write his autobiography just days before his 80th birthday.

    The book will be ghostwritten by Gareth Owen, Sir Roger’s personal assistant. He said: ‘Turning 80 is a milestone, a time to reflect. It’ll be a frank and fun book, but he’s not interested in digging the dirt.’

    Earlier rumoured to have an opening bid of £1 million for world rights to the memoirs, HarperCollins has since been announced as the publisher.

    ‘For the first time, he will share his recollections of playing some of the world’s most famous roles, his fears of serious illness, including his own bout with prostate cancer (which he beat), and how his neighbour Audrey Hepburn got him involved in Unicef, a charity he is still involved with today,’ HarperCollins said in a statement.

    A specific release date for My Word Is My Bond is yet to be announced.
