Rest in peace. One of my favorite Bond allies.

 

Hard to believe he was only 44 years old when playing Tracy's father.

Zounds.

 

I didn't know he was still alive. I just watched OHMSS last week and I always enjoy his performance (nowhere have I read that his voice was dubbed in the 1989 Around the World in 80 Days, so his own voice wasn't much different from what David de Keyser provided).

 

My father is 90 and on his last legs, so I know how Mr. Ferzetti's family must be feeling.

 

RIP, Marc-Ange.

Very shocking news. I didn't know he was still alive. I assumed he passed a long time ago.

 

Being born in 1925, makes him only 42/43 years old when he was in OHMSS. Insane if you think about how old he looked in that film. Diana Rigg is only 8 years younger than him, too.  I watched it quite recently - a fantastic performance and one of the very best Bond allies. Rest in peace, Mr Draco.

Along with Kerim Bey, one of the great Bond allies.

 

Only 44 in OHMSS?  You mean, I should have a daughter and be heading a crime syndicate by now!?  Where has all the time gone?

 

All the time in the world ...

RIP. Gave OHMSS authenticity and gravitas. Excellent during Draco's birthday scene, where Bond and Tracy are around the table. Equally good in the helicopter pursuit to Piz Gloria at the end.

Rigg is 13 years younger. Her character was another 5 years younger.

He was also in three Terence Young-directed films: "Cold Seat" "Jackpot" and "Bloodline".

 

He also worked with acclaimed Italian film director Michelangelo Antonioni on Le amiche (1955) and L'Avventura (1960). He also co-starred in director Costa-Gavas's film The Confession (1970) where he played a villain.

A solid supporting-part actor you could trust to shine with his roles without stealing the show from - sometimes not as gifted - lead characters. Always a bonus to have such talent in your cast.

In OHMSS was very good, as Bond ally. I  still remeber appreciating his role in  OHMSS in 1969 when I watched the film.
