FORMER Bond star Sir Roger Moore will be appearing at the Hexagon in Reading in November with a licence to thrill fans with tales of his life and work.
Sir Roger will be discussing his life and career, with inside stories and exclusive anecdotes ranging from his internationally-renowned TV series The Saint and The Persuaders, through to Hollywood blockbusters.
He will also be discussing his various roles in the 007 films, in which he starred as James Bond between 1973 and 1985.
He said: “Appearing in Reading will be a first for me, though being a fan of the terrific football team and a friend of John Madejski I’m very familiar with the town.
“I just hope Reading aren’t playing the day I arrive as I might have to go and watch them and have my understudy take my part.”
The actor is playing a series of exclusive dates at theatres around the UK following on from a similar tour last year.
Sir Roger will return with 10 new dates in the autumn, opening at the Leeds Grand Theatre on Sunday, October 27. Gareth Owen will interview him. Gareth is an author of nine books and has worked with Sir Roger on his autobiography My Word Is My Bond and his latest book Bond On Bond.
Gareth has interviewed Roger previously at the BFI Southbank, the Barbican Centre and at various UNICEF fundraisers throughout Europe. The show will be followed by an audience question and answer session.
The show takes place at the Hexagon on Saturday, November 2 at 1pm. Tickets went on sale last Tuesday, and are available from the box office on 0118 969 6060 or via the Hexagon website, www.readingarts.com
