The celebrity tributes continue to pour in after news of Sir Roger Moore’s death at 89 on Tuesday after “a short but brave battle with cancer.”

Jane Seymour — who played a Bond girl alongside the actor famously known for his role as James Bond in the franchise films — said Moore taught her “what a movie star really was and should be.”

Russell Crowe recalled dressing up as a 10-year-old boy like Simon Templar, one of the character’s Moore played on television. (RELATED: Legendary ‘James Bond’ Actor Sir Roger Moore Has Died At Age 89)

“The first leading role I ever had as a Bond girl was such a new and frightening world and Roger held my hand and guided me through every process,” Seymour wrote in an Instagram post. “He taught me about work ethic and humility. He was so funny, kind and thoughtful to everyone around him and in that Roger taught me what a movie star really was and should be.”
