Film producer Jonathan Sothcott also paid tribute, writing on Twitter: 'A View To A Kill has always been the 007 film I enjoyed the most and I'm awfully sad to hear leading lady #TanyaRoberts has died at just 65 – she was the consummate 80s Bond girl and had a lovely chemistry with Roger. A star from another, more glamourous age gone. RIP.' 

Tanya's friend and representative Mike Pingel also paid a moving tribute to the star – who also appeared in movies such as The Beastmaster and Sheena: Queen of the Jungle.

He told The Reporter: '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.'
