Richard Kiel, Best Known as Bond Enemy Jaws, Dies Aged 74

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]
