American actor, George Clifton James, who is best known for his roles as Sheriff J,W, Pepper alongside Roger Moore in the James Bond films Live and Let Die and The Man with the Golden Gun, the sheriff, has died at the age of 96.
James died on Saturday in Gladstone, Oregon, due to complications from diabetes.
His daughter Lynn said: “He was the most outgoing person, beloved by everybody.”
“I don’t think the man had an enemy. We were incredibly blessed to have had him in our lives,” she added.
Paying tribute on Twitter, Sir Roger wrote: “Terribly sad to hear Clifton James has left us. As JW Pepper he gave my first two Bond films a great, fun character.”
