‘Nobody does it better’: Daniel Craig pays tribute to Sir Roger Moore
In a reference to the theme of Sir Roger’s The Spy Who Loved Me, Craig posted a photo of the pair in tuxedos with the caption “Nobody Does It Better – Daniel”.
Pierce Brosnan – who like Craig starred as Bond four times – also paid tribute to his predecessor describing Sir Roger as “magnificent”.
