Subject: Michael Lonsdale, who played James Bond villain in Moonraker, dies aged 89

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/21/20 at 2:14 pm

Anglo-French actor Michael Lonsdale, who played the villain opposite Roger Moore's James Bond in the 1979 film Moonraker, has died at the age of 89. In the film, he played Hugo Drax, an industrialist planning to poison all humans on Earth then repopulate the planet from his space station. It was one of more than 200 roles he played in both English and French over a career that spanned six decades. His other film credits included The Day of the Jackal, Ronin and Munich. Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli called Lonsdale an "extraordinarily talented actor and a very dear friend".
