The cause of her death has not been revealed, however, it is said to be non-COVID-19 related.
“I’m devastated. She was brilliant and beautiful and I feel like a light has been taken away. To say she was an angel would be at the top of the list. She was the sweetest person you’d ever meet and had a huge heart. She loved her fans, and I don’t think she realized how much she meant to them,” her longtime friend Mike Pingel told reporters.
Tanya who starred as Stacey Sutton in the James Bond movie ‘A View to a Kill,’ recently opened up about the fear she had about starring as a Bond girl.
“I sort of felt like every girl who’d ever been a Bond girl had seen their career go nowhere, so I was a little cautious,” Roberts said in 2015, PUNCH reported.
“I remember I said to my agent, ‘No one ever works after they get a Bond movie’ and they said to me, ‘Are you kidding? Glen Close would do it if she could,” she added.
After her role in ‘A View To Kill’, Tanya went on to star in ‘Body Slam’ in 1987 and ‘Night Eyes’ in 1990.
