On September 10th Richard Kiel passed away at the glorious age of 74. Kiel was mainly known for his height, towering at 7 feet 1.5 inches, his height and features were a result of a condition known as acromegaly, oddly enough he suffered from acrophobia when he did a stunt on Moonraker, which is probably what he’s best known for. Portraying the James Bond villain Jaws.
I know for sure that’s where I first saw him, my parents love the James Bond Franchise, so that’s how Kiel first entered my conscience.
I also remember him from the classic Twilight Zone episode “To Serve Man.” Then he voiced Vladamir in Tangled.
Sad to see you go, but lived a long life and gave us great memories by playing some great villains.
