Former Bond Girl Jane Seymour Remembers Roger Moore

Jane Seymour remembers Roger Moore less as a kick-ass 007, and more as the funny, thoughtful guy who helped her through her first leading role, as a Bond girl.

Hours after the iconic James Bond died ... Seymour said, "Roger taught me what a movie star really was and should be." Jane played Solitaire in 1973's "Live and Let Die," which was also Roger's first Bond movie.

Although a handful of other actors ordered martinis shaken, not stirred ... Jane said of Roger in her moving Instagram post, "He was my Bond."

Moore was 89.
