Bond girl Tanya Roberts not dead but critical, says her representative in a new statement. 

Hours after declaring her dead, Roberts’ publicist Mike Pingel shared that she is still alive and continues to be in hospital, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

“I did get confirmation (of her death), but that was from a very distraught person (Roberts’ boyfriend, Lance O’Brien). And so yes, this morning at 10 a.m. … the hospital did call to say that she was still alive but it’s not looking good. We will hopefully have information (soon). It’s upsetting,” Pingel said.

During a video interview with Inside Edition, O’Brien got a call telling him that Roberts was not dead. 

“The hospital is telling me she is alive. They are calling me from the ICU team,” he is seen saying. 

The hospital, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where the actress is being treated has not shared any information about her due to “patient privacy laws”.
