BOND fans around the world were devastated to hear the news of Tanya Roberts' untimely death.
The talented beauty collapsed on Christmas Eve after a dog walk with her partner, Lance O’Brien. Here's what we know about the late star's second husband…
Who is Tanya Roberts' husband Lance O'Brien?
Lance O’Brien was Bond girl Tanya Roberts' second husband. He keeps a low profile and it is not clear when the two got married.
They lived together in Hollywood Hills, California until Roberts' death on January 2, 2021.
Tanya's friend and publicist Mike Pingel told The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m devastated. She was brilliant and beautiful and I feel like a light has been taken away.”
“She was the sweetest person you’d ever meet and had a huge heart,
He added: "She loved her fans, and I don’t think she realized how much she meant to them.”
Before marrying Lance later in life, Tanya was married to screenwriter Barry Roberts.
The pair tied the knot in 1974, when the budding actress was just 19.
They spent their life together in California, before Barry tragically died in 2006 after a four and a half year battle with encephalitis, a condition caused by inflammation of the brain.
Tanya famously left That 70's Show in 2001 to care for him after he became terminally ill.
How did the couple meet?
It isn't known how Lance and Tanya met – the pair were incredibly low-key about their marriage.
Tanya met her first husband Barry after they met waiting in line to watch a movie – he was a psychology student at that time and she was an aspiring model.
And it was the plucky actress who proposed to him! She got down on one knee at a subway station.
Did they have children?
Tanya did not have any children of her own, with Lance or with Barry.
Although they had no offspring, Tanya and Lance were dog owners.
The pair had been out walking their dogs on Christmas Eve, and upon returning home Tanya collapsed.
She was admitted to the Cedars-Sinai hospital, where she was put on a ventilator, but sadly died shortly thereafter.
Alongside her husband Lance O'Brien, Tanya leaves behind her older sister, Barbara.
