The movie world lost one of its more iconic villains with the death of Richard Kiel, best known for his work as indestructible uber-villain Jaws in both Moonraker and The Spy Who Loved Me. The actor died Wednesday afternoon at 74 in Fresno, CA.

The actor was fated to play larger-than-life characters, having stood 7’2″ tall. He was able to parlay that size and sense of humor into the camp needed for early-period James Bond films. He later endeared himself to another generation of movie fans with a turn in the Adam Sandler golf film Happy Gilmore. Take a look:

Keil’s hulking presence belied a gentle soul according to those that knew him.

No word on the cause of death yet, as representatives are only saying that it was “natural causes,” though trauma may be a factor, as he had broken his leg last week. Regardless of the cause, it’s a sad day for Bond fans and those close to Kiel.
