RIP Richard Kiel

Unfortunately news has just broken about the passing of Richard Kiel who played the villain "Jaws" in two Roger Moore - James Bond films.  Very sad news.  Growing up in the 1970's he was the Bond villain of choice for many of us young kids at primary school, and obviously his audience popularity after "The Spy Who Loved Me" resulted in his recall as villain turned hero in "Moonraker".

From what I've heard and read, and especially after reading a recent post about his broken leg in the From Sweden With Love newsletter, he was a really down to earth bloke and very easy to talk to.

RIP Richard Kiel.
