James Bond's tribute to slain Celine

James Bond actor Roger Moore paid tribute to deceased businesswoman Celine Cawley who was attacked in her Howth home in December.

Speaking in Dublin at the weekend, the ex-007 star said said that Celine was a "lovely woman".

Celine had a brief walk-on part in the Bond movie, A View to a Kill.

"I remember Celine well -- she was a lovely woman. I heard the news and I was sorry for her," recalled Roger Moore. "It was a real tragedy."

Businesswoman Celine (46) was found badly beaten on December 15 and later died of her injuries. Her husband, Eamonn Lillis, was later charged with her murder.



Stars

The 81-year-old Bond actor was in Dublin to promote his book My World is My Bond at the weekend.

As a 20-year-old aspiring model, Celine moved to New York and posed for photo shoots with American Vogue and Christian Dior, and mingled with stars such as John McEnroe, Bruce Springsteen, Jacqueline Bisset, Ryan O'Neal and Brook Shields.

In 1985, the pretty Dubliner had a brief walk on part in the 14th James Bond movie.
