He played CIA Operative Felix Leiter to both Roger Moore and Tomothy Dalton’s James Bond.
Actor David Hedison has died.
His first turn as Leiter was in 1973’s “Live and Let Die.” He returned to the role 16 years later in 1989’s “License to Kill.”
He also starred in the TV series “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea” and the original 1958 movie “The Fly.”
In later years, Hedison was sanguine about his career, admitting that most of his films were “pictures you never want to see again.”
In fact he joked, “when I know they’ll be on TV I invite my friends for dinner so they can’t watch them.”
David Hedison was 92.
