FSWL (Anders Frejdh) and Marie-Vienne France (webmaster for Roger Moore's official website) caught up with the talented Irish stuntman Martin Grace for an exclusive interview to talk about his career in films, and in particular his work with Sir Roger Moore and how he became his official stunt double.

Editor's note:
On 28 January 2010, just ten days after this interview was published, we received the following message from Sir Roger Moore's PA, Gareth Owen. We are, to say the least, devastated and shocked!

"With great sadness, I must pass on the news of the passing of dear Martin.

Martin was an accomplished stunt performer and co-ordinator, and was Roger's stunt double through most of the Bond films.

Apparently after suffering a cycling accident in late November, Martin fractured his pelvis and was hospitalised for some weeks. This week he was taken from his home in Spain to hospital again after developing breathing problems. He died yesterday after suffering an aneurism.

It's a terrible shock, as he was the fittest man around and always so full of life."
