Jaws has died

Richard Kiel died yesterday aged 74..
Probably remembered as a villain in two James Bond films opposite Roger Moore as well as appearing in other films.

Re: Jaws has died

Sad!  He wasn't really old. I only knew him from the Bond movies but he apparently appeared in others as well.

Re: Jaws has died

He was in quite a few movies (and voice overs) if you look on IMDB.
I vagually remember him in Force 10 from Navarone but my mind was mainly on Babara Bach who was also in The Spy Who Loved Me. I remember seeing another film with him in but can't recall which.

No he wasn't really when you think about some folk living into their 90s.
Apparently though taller people often have shorter lifespans - their bodies become worn out quicker than a shorter persons. Presumably thats due to extra muscle usage / weight?
