Sheriff Pepper actor Clifton James dies aged 96


1920 – 2017

A decorated World War II veteran, Clifton James rose to fame for portraying quirky Louisiana Sheriff J.W. Pepper in the James Bond films Live and Let Die (1973) and The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) starring alongside Roger Moore. He also played a very similar character in both Silver Streak (1976) and Superman II (1980).

The father of six had been active in the film business since the late 1950s with acting credits in over 50 films, among them classics such as Experiment in Terror (1962), The Chase (1966), Juggernaut (1974) as well as The Untouchables (1987).

James died from complications of diabetes on April 15, 2017, age 96. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.

Rest in Peace
