Richard Kiel, whose Jaws character stole the show in two of the fairly duff late 1970s Bond films, has died.
After a TV career that started in the 1960s, Kiel first played Jaws in 1977 film The Spy Who Loved Me, and created a character so popular he returned as hired henchman in subsequent movie Moonraker. Here he is, placing Roger Moore's Bond in a scene of mild peril from Moonraker:
Kiel was also digitally recreated to star in video game James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing, for which he provided the voice. Not that he really ever spoke much. Rest in peace, the greatest Bond villain there's ever been. [Independent]
