Moore Bonds with award

Monte Carlo honors thesp

The Monte Carlo Television Festival raised a martini glass to Roger Moore on Monday, honoring the seven-time James Bond thesp with its first outstanding male actor award.

Singling out Moore for consistently delivering perfs with a worldwide appeal, the fest’s nod is one of several Golden Nymph Awards, created expressly to celebrate the fest’s 40th anniversary. Prince Albert of Monaco will present Moore with his award Feb. 23.

“Roger Moore has a career unparalleled in international entertainment, from his early television role as ‘The Saint’ to his title role in (seven) James Bond films,” said fest secretary general David Tomatis.

Currently, Moore serves as an ambassador to UNICEF, but he’s best known for toplining a slew of Bond flicks, including “Live and Let Die” and “A View to a Kill.”

Running Feb. 17-23, the Monte Carlo Television Festival and Market attracts TV buyers and sellers from more than 85 countries.
