Sir Sean Connery has died at the age of 90. The late legendary Scottish actor’s family reported his death to the BBC earlier tonight.
The late actor was best known for being the first-ever James Bond actor and reprising the role for six movies, having starred in 1962’s Dr. No, 1963’s From Russia With Love, 1964’s Goldfinger, 1965’s Thunderball, 1967’s You Only Live Twice and 1971’s Diamonds Are Forever.
He was also famous for other roles, including the bizarre 1974 sci-fi movie Zardoz, 1986’s Highlander, 1996’s The Rock, and one of his last ever film roles (and an underrated one at that); 2003’s The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
In addition, he also won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Jim Malone in 1987’s The Untouchables.
Rest in peace, Sir Sean Connery. You will always be James Bond in our hearts.
