Sean Connery, the Scottish actor whose five-decade long movie career was dominated by the role of James Bond, has died at the age of 90, according to a BBC report, which cited a statement from his son, Jason Connery. He was the first Bond and is widely-regarded by fans as the best Bond in the entire franchise.
Connery, who was knighted by the Queen in 2000 for his contribution to the arts, played the British spy in a total of seven (7) movies between 1962 to 1983: "Dr. No," "From Russia with Love," "Goldfinger," "Thunderball," "You Only Live Twice," "Diamonds are Forever," and "Never Say Never Again."
Connery undertook the difficult task of breaking free of his Bond character and was successful - starring in many other films, including an Alfred Hitchcock film - 1964's "Marnie," opposite Tippi Hedren, 1974's "Murder on the Orient Express," 1989's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (playing Indiana Jones' father), "The Hunt For Red October," and "The Rock." He won an Academy Award for best supporting actor for his performance as Chicago cop Jim Malone in the 1987 film "The Untouchables."
He also won 2 BAFTA awards and 3 Golden Globes and held the "Sexiest Man Alive” crown. He once finished third place in the "Mr. Universe" contest back in 1953.
Connery is survived by his second wife, Micheline Roquebrune, and his son Jason. RIP.
