Paying tribute - the Cornish dentist who helped make James Bond actor Richard Kiel a star.

He has passed away at the age of seventy-four.

007 co-star Sir Roger Moore has said he is 'heartbroken' describing his friend as warm hearted and a delight to work with.

Luis Fairman from Bodmin created the teeth he wore to play Jaws in Moonraker and The Spy Who Loved Me: "They did fit but they were very uncomfortable for him and he always told him when I met him subsequently that they were the most uncomfortable things he'd ever had to wear during a film, so he hated the things!

"He was a very nice man, very nice indeed. A giant. But a gentle giant for sure and he always had a lot of time for any fans of the film."
