It is very sad to hear the passing of stuntman and actor Doug Robinson. Doug appeared in several James Bond films as an actor and as a stuntman. He was born on the 8th of February 1930 and died on the 16th of December 2021.

After the tears have dried and the goodbyes have been said, all we have is happy memories.
