Jane Seymour is "devastated" to hear about Sir Roger Moore's death.

The 'Live and Let Die' star paid tribute to her "funny, kind and thoughtful" co-star, who passed away in Switzerland on Tuesday, May 23, after losing a short battle with cancer.

She wrote on Instagram: "I am devastated to learn of Roger Moore’s passing. The first leading role I ever had as a Bond girl was such a new and frightening world and Roger held my hand and guided me through every process. He taught me about work ethic and humility.

"He was so funny, kind and thoughtful to everyone around him and in that Roger taught me what a movie star really was and should be. Through his lifelong work with UNICEF he showed me the true meaning of being a humanitarian and giving back. He was my Bond."
