Tanya Roberts, best known for her roles in the James Bond film A View to a Kill and That – 70s Show, tragically died at the age of 65.
The actress was best known for her roles as Stacey Sutton in the Bond film A View to a Kill and Midge Pinciotti in That ’70s Show.
Just yesterday, the star took a post on Instagram to celebrate the new year and said she was looking forward to a fresh start.
Ms. Roberts collapsed after returning home from a walk with her dogs on Christmas Eve, according to TMZ, which first reported the news of her death. She was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where she was ventilated but never recovered.
« I am devastated. I’ve been friends with Tanya for over 20 years, ”Mike Pingel, longtime friend of Ms. Roberts, told CNN.
« She was full of energy and we always had wild times together. She really was an angel and I will miss her so much. ”
« She was the cutest person you have ever met and had a big heart, » he told The Hollywood Reporter.
« She loved her fans, and I don’t think she realized how much she meant to them. ”
Her first film role in the 1975 horror film Forced Entry came after a brief modeling career. She starred in The Beastmaster in 1982 and Sheena: Queen of the Jungle in 1984.
Her biggest hiatus seemed to happen the following year when she starred alongside Roger Moore in his last Bond film, and played Christopher Walken as the villain.
But in the end, the role may have harmed Ms. Robert’s career more than it helped.
« I felt like every girl who had ever been a Bond girl saw her career going nowhere, so I was a little cautious, » she told The Daily Mail in a candid interview in 2015.
“I remember saying to my agent, ‘Nobody ever works after getting a Bond movie. « And they said to me, » Are you kidding me? Glenn Close would if she could. ‘
« And I was like, » Well you can regret it if you wish, but what is it about? « At the time I didn’t know what I know now. And to be honest, who would really turn down that role? Nobody would.
« I was very young and did what I thought was the right choice. I’ve made lots of good choices and lots of bad, and that’s part of life. Whether you are really successful or moderately successful, I am sure that at some level you made some bad and good decisions to get there.
« But that’s how I see life. You cannot go through life defeated. It’s just trial and error. ”
Ms. Roberts said A View to a Kill, combined with her previous role on Charlie’s Angels TV show, put her in a « pigeon hole » that was difficult to get out of.
« I think it’s better to get into the spotlight very slowly and take on a wider range of roles, but I’ve taken on those glamorous roles and I think that stereotyped me, » she said.
« You think you’re a stupid, glamorous woman, so it’s difficult. And I think that’s why most Bond girls don’t have careers after the movie because people just don’t take them seriously. ”
She appeared in 81 episodes of That ’70s Show between 1998 and 2004, and rounded off her career in 2005 with roles on the Eve and Barbershop shows.
