This has to be my fave of Roger's Twitter replies:




That's so James Bond - i bet it was straight off the cuff :)


But then there's also this:




There's a real honesty to his best one liners - he was a smiling assassin in comedy terms with his sharp put downs delivered with charm.


He knew when to be sincere, as with the lovely story from a 7 year old Marc meeting him a on plane and then again 23 years later. But he also knew when (and how) to cut through the BS with an air of levity, as these two tweets demonstrate.

Without a doubt.

On such a dreadful day as this it feels appropriate to give condolences to those effected by the Manchester bomb as well as Roger. I'm sure Roger would approve.


By ALL accounts Roger was perhaps the nicest, most humble man to grace the big screen. We 'll miss him and the world is a duller, less gracious and less fun place without him.


Thanks for so many great times in the cinema and especially in front of the tv watching a Bond movie with mum and dad on a Sunday evening. Maybe it's sad (and i really don't intend this pun), but they were bonding experiences i remember fondly.

That's tragic, he was so young and still no doubt had plenty of songs still to write.


He provided the best possible introduction to Craig's reboot and YKMN gets even better with age imo. Black Hole Sun is an all time classic and unique.

Wow, his accent is strange. I think he's from Newcastle, but it sounds Welsh there! Though not as bonkers as Tom Hardy's interview accents and those new Sky mobile ads. Boy he sounds odd in those! He's probably still in character from Dunkirk. 


Anyhow, he's not on my list for Bond. Over 7 seasons of Sons of Anarchy i saw little more in the actor's toolbox than rage and a K9 head tilt for empathy.
