Bond star SIR Roger Moore wants his collapse from an irregular heartbeat to serve as a warning to fans who may be suffering from the same condition.
The 007 actor was rushed to hospital after falling over onstage during a performance of Kenneth Branagh's Broadway show The Play What I Wrote in 2003.
He later found out he suffers from arrhythmia - and he's urging fans to check their heartbeats regularly to detect cardiac problems early on.
He says, "People should know their pulse as they would their weight. If I had been checking my pulse I would have realised my heartbeat was slow and sought help. You can check your pulse at any time but last thing at night after a period of rest is a good time. I was lucky. My collapse was a warning. Others may not be so fortunate. Taking your pulse only takes 30 seconds."
