Multiple award-winning Scottish actors best known for 007 roles in seven spy films Sean Connery passes away at the age of 90. He was one of Britain’s greatest film stars, earning worldwide fame and adoration for playing iconic secret agent 007, James Bond.

The Oscar-winning actor will always be associated with his smooth, Scottish-accented portrayal of the suave spy and was considered a sex symbol well into old age.

Sir Sean Connery was a fiercely proud Scot and a financial backer of the Scottish National Party (SNP), which advocates separating Scotland from the United Kingdom.

The first actor to utter the unforgettable “Bond, James Bond”, Connery made six official films as novelist Ian Fleming’s creation, giving what many still consider as the definitive portrayal.

He starred as Bond in Dr. No (1962), his favourite From RussiaWithLove (1963), Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967) and Diamonds Are Forever (1971).

He made a comeback as the British spy in the unofficial 1983 film Never Say Never Again and was even named People Magazine’s sexist man in 1989.

He was admired by generations of film fans as the original and best 007 and went on to create a distinguished body of work in films such as The Man Who Would Be King, The Name of the Rose, and The Untouchables.

Sure to say Sean was the best James Bond among all. Rest in Peace.
