Joe Robinson Diamonds Are Forever
FSWL is very sad to report that another one of our friends from the world of 007, Joe Robinson, the British actor and stuntman who so memorably fought James Bond (Sean Connery) trapped in an elevator in Diamonds Are Forever, has passed away at age 90. Our thoughts are with his family.

“So sad to hear about Joe’s passing, he was a good friend. I like all his work and I think he played Peter Franks perfectly. Over the years we did several memorabilia show and our tables were always next to each other. Great fun. He will be missed by all. RIP mate.” – Terry Mountain

Trina Parks (Thumper in Diamonds Are Forever) remembers Joe:

"Joe was such a great personality and we became friends at a convention in London 2005. He came over to introduce himself to me and we had a great conversation, for quite a while, about our 'Villain' roles and laughed how we are so opposite, of our characters. And what a pleasant man to speak with. We stayed in touch throughout my stay in London and after I returned to the States. His friendship will always be special in my heart."
