Actress Tanya Roberts, best known for her role as Bond girl in A View To A Kill, died on Jan 3. She was 65. Her rep Mike Pingel confirmed the news with The Hollywood Reporter.

According to Pingel, Roberts collapsed while walking her dogs on Christmas Eve and was then admitted to hospital in Los Angeles. She was put on a ventilator but never recovered, according to Entertainment Weekly. It was not Covid-19 related.

"She was brilliant and beautiful and I feel like a light has been taken away. To say she was an angel would be at the top of the list. She was the sweetest person you'd ever meet and had a huge heart. She loved her fans, and I don't think she realised how much she meant to them," Pingel said.

Before clinching the role as Bond girl Stacey Sutton opposite Roger Moore in A View To A Kill, Roberts starred in cult films such as Sheena: Queen Of The Jungle and The Beastmaster. She also starred in the final season of The Charlie's Angels in the 1980s and for several seasons in the sitcom, That '70s Show.

UPDATE: In a new report on Jan 4, Tanya Roberts' rep clarified that the actress is not dead. Roberts' boyfriend mistakenly thought the actress had died. Read more here.
