Lance O'Brien has opened up on the 'James Bond' star's legacy following her death on Monday (04.01.21), which had been prematurely confirmed by her publicist a day earlier.

Speaking to Fox News, he said: "She loved 'That 70s Show' more than anything in the world. She loved that more than any of her movies."

Lance explained it was the filming schedule for the show - in which she starred as Midge Pinciotti, mother of Donna (Laura Prepon) - as it was closer to a typical "9 to 5 type job" and gave her more time at home.

He added: "It was so much fun. She could come home, have dinner at home, see the dogs."

And Lance - who revealed he and Tanya have spent the last 15 years together - admitted he doesn't know what he'll "do without her".

He said: "We haven't been apart. I just am devastated about what I'm going to do without her."

Meanwhile, he had previously discovered the star was still alive mid-interview after the premature confirmation of her passing.

Lance was being interviewed by Inside Edition when he paused to take a phone call from the doctors.

Speaking to the doctors on the phone, Lance said: "Now, you're telling me she's alive? The hospital is telling me she is alive. They are calling me from the ICU team.”

Tanya passed away in hospital after she collapsed near her home whilst walking her dogs on Christmas Eve (24.12.20).

Her publicist Mike Pingel confirmed: "With a heavy heart I can confirm the death of Tanya Roberts last night on January 4, 2021 around 9:30pm PT at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA.

“[Her cause of death] was from a urinary tract infection which spread to her kidney, gallbladder, liver and then blood stream.”

She was best known for her role as Bond girl Stacey Sutton in the 1985 Bond movie 'A View to a Kill' and also appeared in flick such as 'The Beastmaster' and 'Sheena: Queen of the Jungle’.
