    @ He Had Lots Of Guts, I agree it seems like we are losing Bond Alumni at a fast rate these days. Still I am grateful for those original cast and crew members still with us today. In particular, I am planning on watching Timothy Dalton in his new tv show Doom Patrol based on the D.C. comics series of the same name.


    As a I mentioned in the tributes thread on the Off Topic board, I am very grateful that David Hedison was able to write the forward to the new version of the book Roger Moore's 007 Diaries before he passed away this year at the age of 92.

    Goodbye, Felix.

    He was the best Felix Leiter in the origional timeline - thanks for the memories, David Hedison :007)

    Very sad to lose my favourite Felix. He had great chemistry with Roger Moore, not just in Bond but in other films and television, and he was quite good on screen with Dalton as well. He's the only Felix that I could picture being close enough friends with Bond that he'd invite Bond to the wedding.

    What a shame. I am a great fan of David Hedison, he was a delightful man and quite a good actor. And, though listed in the credits as Al Hedison, David Hedison was "The Fly", in the original, seminal, film from 1958. Here's the Wikipedia listing of the film: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fly_(1958_film). Mr. Hedison was also one of the stars of one of my favorite TV shows from the 1960s, "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea." It was a ground breaking show and set the bar high for later shows like "Star Trek."
    Also, David Hedison is tied by Jeffrey Wright, as the only actor to appear more than once in Bond films, as Felix Leiter. Wright will best this appearance total as Felix Leiter in the upcoming Bond 25. He is, however, the only actor to play Felix Leiter with 2 different actors playing James Bond and will likely always hold that record.
    It's hardly ever mentioned that Mr. Hedison was a student of Sanford Meisner and Martha Graham at The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre and with Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio. He will be greatly missed, by legions of fans.

    RIP Hedison. He and Sir Roger are now enjoying the blues at the Filet o Soul in the great beyond!

    RIP David Hedison

    Not only did David Hedison's Felix Leiter straddle two different Bond actors and decades, but also two very different styles of Bond film. Yet the way he played Leiter suggested that this likeable character was indeed one and the same man. A loss.
    Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 50 years.
