I was delighted to meet Roger Moore last night at Network’s event to mark the 40th anniversary of The Persuaders! and its release on DVD and Blu-ray.
For such a huge star, Roger Moore is a wonderfully warm, charming and self-deprecating man. He asked everybody their name, shook hands and posed for photographs. Interviewed by Barry Norman, he claimed the secret of his success is that he’s been very lucky.
He’s an inspirational figure, and a valid lesson to the prima donnas in the entertainment industry who refuse to talk about their early successes. He’s also impeccably well-mannered and charming. It was a real honour to meet him.
