Roger Moore’s stepdaughter Christina Knudsen dies aged 47

The James Bond actor shared the news on Twitter

Roger Moore‘s stepdaughter Christina Knudsen has passed away at the age of 47 after a battle with cancer.

Knudsen was Moore’s stepdaughter from his fourth marriage to Kiki Tholstrup, who he married in 2002.

The former James Bond actor shared the sad news via Twitter earlier today (July 26) posting a picture of Knudsen with the following statement: “Our beautiful daughter Christina (aka Flossie) lost her battle with cancer 25 July at 10am. We are heartbroken.”

He later shared another picture of Knudsen, with the caption: “We were all with her, surrounding her with love, at the end.”

Knubsen had previously spoken of Moore to The Evening Standard. Talking of her previous marriage to investment banker Nikolaj Albinus, she said: “I think I didn’t know myself that well when I got married and felt pressurised by society.”

She continued, “I wasn’t yet able to listen to who I was and what I really wanted. I was in difficult relationships but all that changed when my mother met Roger.”

Moore became a silver screen legend for his portrayals of the secret agent and played 007 in seven films over 12 years. He previously hailed Daniel Craig as the “best actor to play Bond.”
