Tommy Lane 1937-2021
FSWL are saddened to report that American actor Tommy Lane passed away in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on 29th November 2021 at the age of 83. Lane played the stylish henchman Adam in Live and Let Die (1973) directed by Guy Hamilton. Our sincere condolences to his family and friends.

All James Bond fans will remember him for scenes opposite Roger Moore as 007, including a standout sequence where Adam leaves Bond on an island surrounded by crocodiles and alligators, ending in an epic speed boat chase on the Bayou waters.
