The British actor Roger Moore, best known for his iconic acting roles as The Saint and James Bond, has had a few encounters with the paranormal. Whilst making the 1970 film The Man Who Haunted Himself, Moore confessed to having a keen interest in the supernatural.
Around 1960, Moore was staying in a hotel. One night, he suddenly woke up, his whole body coated in perspiration. It was around 2.00 am. A strange smell assailed his nostrils. Then he saw a mist come streaming in through the windows, across the bed, to finally take up form close to his side. Moore just lay there stiffly in the bed, staring incredulously at this weird wispy form, utterly frozen with fear.
Then a logical part of his mind admonished himself not to be so silly. He then ventured to ask the wispy entity: “What do you want?”
Then, as suddenly and mysteriously as it had come, the mist faded away. Moore then began to gradually relax, until he finally sank back into sleep.
The following night, the strange incident recurred. Not surprisingly, Moore was full of unease when he went to bed on the third night. On that night, Moore noticed that the Bible lying next to his bed had been left open at the twenty-third Psalm: “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will feel no evil, for though art with me.” That night, the mist did not come.
The following morning, a maid – a Jehovah’s Witness – asked Moore if he’d seen the mist. When he told her he hadn’t, she said, “I didn’t think you would.” She said she’d put the Bible by the bed. But Moore could not say for certain whether the Holy Bible’s presence really had warded off whatever incorporeal entity it was that had crept into his bedroom.
