A Hollywood icon has taken his final bow. Sir Roger Moore died Tuesday in Switzerland at the age of 89. The British actor had been battling cancer, his family said in a statement on Twitter.

Best known for playing James Bond, he was the third actor to play the iconic secret agent in the film franchise. His seven Bond movies included "Live and Let Die" (1973), "The Man With the Golden Gun" (1974), "The Spy Who Loved Me" (1977), "Moonraker" (1979), "For Your Eyes Only" (1981), "Octopussy" (1983) and "A View to a Kill" (1985).

Moore's career stretched farther than his signature role with a martini. He was also a model, television and film producer and voice actor. His career in entertainment — which began in 1945 as an extra in the film "Caesar and Cleopatra" — spanned 72 years. Roger Moore's net worth is $110 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth.

In honor of the longest-serving actor in the franchise, here is a look at the wealth and careers of the six other men who have donned the tuxedo, sipped the martinis and driven the luxurious vehicles of James Bond.

George Lazenby Net Worth: $100 Million

George Lazenby Net Worth: $100 Million

In 1969, George Lazenby joined the coveted list of Bond actors when he portrayed 007 in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service." Though that was his only film in the Bond canon, his success certainly didn't stop — or start — there.

Before he ever picked up a pistol, Lazenby was the highest-paid model in the world for most of the 1960s. Post-Bond, he moved away from acting and pursued a variety of business and real estate investments, to which the majority of his $100 million net worth can likely be attributed.

Timothy Dalton Net Worth: $10 Million

Classically trained Shakespearean actor Timothy Dalton portrayed bond in two films: "The Living Daylights" (1987) and "Licence to Kill" (1989). He has a net worth of $10 million.

Most recently, Dalton appeared as Sir Malcolm Murray in the Showtime supernatural drama "Penny Dreadful."

Pierce Brosnan Net Worth: $80 Million

Irish-born actor Pierce Brosnan helped bring the Bond movies into a more modern era of action. Brosnan debuted as the suave Bond in "GoldenEye" (1995). He also played the character in "Tomorrow Never Dies" (1997), "The World Is Not Enough" (1999) and "Die Another Day" (2002).

Though he is arguably best known for his Bond films, other Brosnan movies have been successful, including "The Thomas Crown Affair." The 1999 film made $124.3 million worldwide. In 2008, Brosnan appeared in the movie adaptation of the musical "Mamma Mia!" A recently-announced sequel to the film will be released in July 2018.

Daniel Craig Net Worth: $95 Million

Daniel Craig Net Worth: $95 Million

Daniel Craig's acting career might have started in 1992, but it wasn't until he stepped into the classic James Bond tuxedo for "Casino Royale" in 2006 that he was launched into the Hollywood spotlight. Since then, he's starred in three other Bond films: "Quantum of Solace" (2008), "Skyfall" (2012) and "Spectre" (2015). He's rumored to don the tux at least once more in the upcoming "Bond 25."

His $95 million net worth is largely due to his Bond role and highly-successful spinoff video games. Craig has also garnered attention for his roles in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" and "Road to Perdition."

All net worths are attributed to unless otherwise noted.
