Former James Bond star SIR Roger Moore achieved his classic turn as the superspy because he was older - according to ex-Bond girl Honor Blackman.
The 82-year-old British actress played Pussy Galore in the 1964 movie Goldfinger alongside Sir Sean Connery, and believes Moore - who landed the role aged 46 - brought humour to the part because he wasn't a young actor.
She says, "Roger wasn't heavy enough. I think if he had been much younger when he played Bond he might have been more serious and less tongue-in-cheek.
"Sean had the killer instinct and was the sexiest Bond. But I guess he was the first so he became the template."
