James Bond actor David Hedison dies aged 92

James Bond star David Hedison has died aged 92. The actor passed away with his daughters at his side in Los Angeles on Thursday, a representative for the family said.

Well known for his roles in the Bond franchise, David joined Roger Moore in the 1973 film Live and Let Die as well as Timothy Dalton in 1989 with License to Kill, becoming the first actor to play CIA agent Felix Leiter twice.

However, Jeffrey Wright, who took over the role in 2006’s Casino Royale, will return for Bond 25.

‘Even in our deep sadness, we are comforted by the memory of our wonderful father,’ his daughters Alexandra and Serena said in a statement this week.
