The 89-year-old star, famous for his longtime portrayal of James Bond, passed away Tuesday, as confirmed by his three children in a statement.
"With the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today," a tweet from the actor's account read. "We are all devastated."
According to the statement, Moore died in Switzerland following a "short but brave" battle with cancer. "The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone," his kids wrote.
