Sir Roger Moore’s third wife, Italian actress Luisa Mattioli, died at the age of 85.
A family friend says the movie and television star, who had been married to Sir Roger for 24 years, was “sick for a while.”
Matiori had a James Bond star and three children he met while filming the 1962 Italian adventure comedy Romulus and Sabine’s Law.
After Sir Roger left Matiori and his best friend, Swedish-born Danish socialite Christina Solstrap, the couple separated in 1993 and officially divorced in 2002.
Geoffrey Moore, the restaurant owner of Mayfair, the eldest son of the couple, said of the news:
He was speaking from Switzerland. In Switzerland, Matioli is understood to have been alive at the time of her death.
Another family said: ‘Luisa was ill for a while, so it was a difficult time for the whole family. Despite her fierce division from Sir Roger, they settled before his death.
Sir Roger Moore’s children (photographed with Moore and Luis Matiori in 1973) were thrilled with the release of the long-awaited new James Bond movie No Time to Die.
Moore was probably best known for playing James Bond in many 007 movies which include the famous backgammon casino scene in Octopussy (no, they didn’t have online casinos back then).

Moore, who died in 2017 at the age of 89, gave Matioli in 1993 for her best friend, Swedish-born Danish socialite Christina’Kiki’ Soltrap (photographed together in 1995). I’m gone.
Matiori was born in March 1936 in Santostina di Rebenza, Veneto, Italy, and studied at the Italian National Film Experiment Center, the oldest film school in Western Europe.
The 23-year-old starred in the 1959 Italian drama “The Night of the Great Attack” and played the maid.
Two years later, she starred in Richard Pottier’s movie “The Laws of Romulus and Sabine,” starring with her future husband, Moore.
However, at that time, Moore was still married to his second wife, singer Dorothy Squishy.
After the split, Moore married Matioli at a ceremony in London in 1969. They had three children, Jeffrey, Deborah, and Christian.
Moore, who died in 2017 at the age of 89, left Matioli in 1993 for her best friend, Swedish-born Danish social celebrity Christina Solstrap.
Mattioli won a huge settlement of £ 10m in the divorce, but refused to divorce for seven years.
She writes in her memoir “Nothing Lasts Forever” that she felt betrayed by Tholstrup and abandoned by Moore.
Moore’s children with Matiori refused to talk to him for some time after the divorce, but later settled with their father.
The beginning of Matioli’s romance with Moore was as explosive as its end.
The Welsh singer hit a guitar on his head when his second wife, Dorothy Squire, learned of his relationship with Matiori, which began during filming in Italy in 1961.
Moore, who died in 2017 at the age of 87, left Matiori (both in the photo) in 1993 for her best friend, Swedish-born Danish social celebrity Christina Solstrap.

Moore said:’She threw a brick through my window. She reached out through the glass, grabbed my shirt, cut her arm and did it.
The police came and they said: “Madame, you are bleeding,” and she said: “It is my heart that is bleeding.”
The servants refused to accept their separation and sued Moore for losing the couple’s rights, but Moore refused the court’s order to return to the valet within 28 days.
She sued Kenneth More for defamation but failed because the actor introduced Moore and Matiori as “Roger Moore and his wife” at a charity event.
When Moore, who first married RADA’s fellow student Doorn Van Steyn at the age of 18, finally married Matioli in 1969, 600 fans gathered outside Westminster’s Caxton Hall and a woman named him. I cried.
