Sean Connery, Scottish Actor Who Played James Bond In Seven Movies Has Died

Sean Connery, the highly decorated actor who rocketed to stardom for his iconic role as James Bond, has reportedly passed away, he was 90 years old.

The BBC reported that the Scottish actor’s demise was confirmed by his family.

The report states he died overnight in his sleep while in the Bahamas, where he was known to be living in his final years.

Sean Connery was an international superstar, having earned an Academy Award, multiple Golden Globes, including the Cecil B DeMille and Henrietta Awards, as well as two British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA).

One of his most memorable roles was as the first actor to tackle the character of James Bond, beginning with 1962’s ‘Dr No’. His other memorable movies include ‘The Untouchables’, ‘The Rock’ and ‘Murder on the Orient Express’.

In total, Sean Connery appeared in seven Bond films, ‘Dr No’, ‘From Russia with Love’, ‘Goldfinger’, ‘Thunderball’, ‘You Only Live Twice’, ‘Diamonds are Forever’ and ‘Never Say Never Again’.

James Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have released a statement via the James Bond official Twitter account, saying that they were devastated by the news of the passing of Sir Sean Connery.

They said that he was and shall always be remembered as the original James Bond whose memorable entrance into cinema history began when he announced those unforgettable words – “The name’s Bond… James Bond”.

He revolutionised the world with his gritty and witty portrayal of the seductive and charismatic secret agent and he was indeed largely responsible for the success of the film series and they said that they shall be eternally grateful to him.

Sean Connery’s other movies included ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’, ‘The Hunt for Red October’, ‘The Wind and the Lion’ and ‘The Man Who Would Be King’, and while he was considered by many as one of the best to have ever portrayed the British secret spy, Sean Connery’s other roles added to his list of awards, and his part in Brian de Palma’s ‘The Untouchables’ in 1987 earned him a supporting actor Oscar.

In 1999, Sean Connery was picked as People magazine’s Sexiest Man of the Century, and one year later, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

Born Thomas Sean Connery in Edinburgh, Scotland on August 15, 1930, he was the son of a factory worker and a domestic cleaner and according to the BBC, he was born in humble upbringings, in a one-room residence with a shared toilet and no hot water.

But this amazing actor will always be James Bond and he was loved by millions around the world and in my book, he will be the only James Bond regardless of who else plays the role.

And if there’s anything that Sean Connery has taught us, it’s that our honourable, loving and peaceful actions will save and heal the world, not our bitterness, weapons or worth and this is a devastating loss to all of us.

Entertainment will just not be the same without him and he will be missed very much and it’s a sad day for the arts because he was a true performer and it’s very sad to let him go, but he had an amazing and wonderful journey.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
