Sir Roger Moore is to make his Edinburgh stage debut this Autumn when he appears at the Festival Theatre as part of a ten date speaking tour in conversation with writer Gareth Owen.

Moore became a household name in the 60s playing Simon Templar in The Saint and went on to star alongside Tony Curtis, in The Persuaders!. He joined the Bond franchise in 1973 at the age of 45 in Live and Let Die, taking over from Sean Connery. Over 12 years he starred in seven Bonds, finishing with A View to a Kill in 1985 when he was 58.

According to  publicity for the event: “Roger will be discussing his astonishing 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 and, of course, the 007 films.”

Moore will be interviewed by Gareth Owen, author of nine books who worked with Moore on his autobiography My Word Is My Bond and his 2012 book Bond On Bond. Gareth has interviewed Roger previously at the BFI Southbank, the Barbican Centre and at various UNICEF fundraisers throughout Europe.

Following the formal interview session, there will also be an opportunity to put questions to the Hollywood legend.

Roger Moore appears at the Festival Theatre on Monday  11 November 2013 at 7.30pm. Tickets priced £25 go on sale from the Festival Theatre on Tuesday 28 May. Details on www.edtheatres.com
