James Bond in ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE 1969

George Lazenby is a professional and a great guy although I know he regret listening to his his agent who said the Bond phenomenon wouldn't last and advised him to leave the franchise.

When I saw him for the first time at Autographica in Northampton 2002 the queue of waiting fans was enormous but he gently signed photos for everyone.

I then saw him at the Royal World premiere of Die Another Day (2002) and also as a surprise guest introducing the women at "An evening with the Bond women", both times in London.

The third time I had the privilege to meet Lazenby was at Pinewood Studios during the celebration of him as James Bond in June 2005. Like previous meetings he made many Bond fans happy by appearing in person.

Among things he revealed was that he and his wife Pam Shriver (one of the world's best tennis players) were expecting twins that November. I asked him about his current handicap in golf as he, like Sir Sean, has a worm for this sport. George said it was currently at 8.
On the day, he personally introduced the special screening of On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) at Pinewood Studios Theatre 7 which made it a very special and memorable for everyone in attendance.

Now a family father he never seem to forget his time as Bond. He is always very patient and kind to Bond fans at every event he attends.

Thanks George and all the best to you and the family, good luck with the golf as well!
