Moore's Life Story Was Stolen At Airport

Subscribe James Bond

JAMES BOND star SIR ROGER MOORE gave up on his first attempt to write his life story - when the manuscript was stolen at an airport.
The 007 veteran, who lives in Switzerland, began to pen his autobiography several years ago but scrapped the project when he was targeted by thieves in Geneva.
And it was only after he turned 80 last year (07) that he decided to have another go at writing his memoirs - when his wife Kristina and daughter Deborah convinced him it was a good idea.
Moore, who suffered several health problems as a child, tells WENN, "I was pushed by my wife, my daughter - and Michael Caine a few years ago had done his (autobiography).
"I did try years ago and then lost the manuscript - well, it was stolen. It was on a disc in my bag, stolen at the airport at Geneva. I'd got about 14,000, 15,000 words. It quite put me off.
"I wasn't doing it as a straight autobiography because I never wanted to do that. It was going to be about my medical history. I was going to talk about my childhood, with various ops (operations) and what have you - and I was going to call it Out of the Bedpan, Into the Fire. But it was never to be.
"Then my 80th came along and I was talking to Kristina and Deborah and said 'OK, I'll try.'"
Moore's life story - My Word Is My Bond - is released in the U.K. this week (02Oct08).
