Tanya’s rep informed TMZ that she was on a walk on Christmas Eve with her dogs and she collapsed when she got home.
She was put on a ventilator and rushed to the hospital, but never got better. We’re advised that it was NOT linked to COVID. Tanya died at the age of 65.
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 Hollywood star from another, more glamorous age gone. RIP pic.twitter.com/4lC5OTIUMN
