One of the world’s famous leading stuntmen, Remy Julienne, who appeared in six James Bond movies as well as the 1969 classic “The Italian Job”, has died from COVID-19.
He died at the age of 90.
Friends and family members confirmed his demise on Friday.
Julienne had been in intensive care in a hospital in his home town of Montargis in central France since early January.
“What was bound to happen has happened. He left us early in the evening (Thursday). It was predictable, he was on a respirator,” a relative told AFP.
Julienne was a veteran of more than 1,400 films and TV commercials as an actor or stunt coordinator.
