Tanya Roberts, actress of the saga of James Bond and Charlie's Angels, has died

The last "Bond girl" in the 007 starring Roger Moore, Tanya Roberts, died this Monday at 65 in Los Angeles.

The death of the protagonist of "A View to a Kill" (1985) and also the protagonist of the last television season of Charlie's Angels, Tanya Roberts, was confirmed by his representative Mike Pingel, who explained that the interpreter was admitted to a hospital in the city Californian since she passed out on the street on December 24 while walking her dogs.

For now, the cause of Tanya Roberts' death has not been released, although in principle it has been ruled out that it is due to the coronavirus. Roberts, whose original name was Victoria Leigh Blum, was born in New York in 1955 and had started her career as a model and also in advertising before becoming an actress.

The small screen was his first home, since Roberts, after several small roles in television series and films, was selected as one of the three protagonists of the fifth and final season of "Charlie's Angels" (1976-1981).

Roberts could not prevent the end of that famous series, but her career continued to rise until she achieved what would finally be the great role of her career: the role of Bond girl in "A View to a Kill."

Directed by John Glen, this film was Roger Moore's last as Bond before handing over Agent 007's suit to actor Timothy Dalton. "A View to a Kill" also featured Christopher Walken and Grace Jones.

Although she was criticized many times for her films, precisely Sheena: the queen of the jungle was beaten by critics, Roberts became a cult star, thanks to her performances in fantasy films such as The Lord of the Beasts, along with the thrillers Night Eyes or Inner Sanctum.

Tanya Roberts' career also includes other films such as "The Beastmaster" (1982) or "Sheena" (1984). His last prominent role was on television thanks to the series "That '70s Show" (1998-2004).
