Bond girl and Charlie’s Angels star is still alive – despite agent earlier saying she had died

Written by on 5 January 2021

Bond girl Tanya Roberts is still alive, her agent has said, after earlier saying she had died. 

The 65-year-old actress, who starred in A View To A Kill, had been in hospital after collapsing at her home in Los Angeles on Christmas Eve, her agent Mike Pingel said.

He told Sky News on Monday morning UK time that Roberts had died on Sunday. He had also posted a photo of the pair together on his Instagram page, writing: “Devastated.”

Roberts’ apparent death was widely reported and tributes had been paid to the star on social media, including from James Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

But Mr Pingel has now told the PA news agency Roberts was still alive at 10am local time on Monday (6pm in the UK) and the family was awaiting further news from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre.

However, he added “it does not look good”.

Roberts is best known for her roles in Charlie’s Angels and That ’70s show, along with her turn as Bond girl Stacey Sutton opposite Roger Moore in A View To A Kill.
