Sean Connery dies… RIP the King of Spy-Fy (news).

October 31, 2020 | By | Reply More

Sean Connery, our first James Bond in film, has sadly passed away, now – he starred in seven Bond films (such as Dr. No, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds Are Forever, etc.) between 1962 and 1983. Connery died in his sleep on 31st October 2020, aged 90, at his home in Nassau in the very sunny Bahamas (where Sean was a tax exile).

Some other classic flicks are The Man Who Would Be King (1975) – both his and friend Michael Caine’s favourite film, A Bridge Too Far (1977), Time Bandits (1981), Outland (1981), Highlander (1986), The Name of the Rose (1986), The Untouchables (1988), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), The Hunt for Red October (1990), Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (1991), Dragonheart (1996), The Rock (1996), The Avengers (1998), and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003).

But please, let’s never mention 1971’s Zardoz ever again!

Connery’s first job was as a milkman in Edinburgh, which is kind of cool. He was also an AA-gunner in the Royal Navy in the Cold War, serving on the HMS Formidable.

Before finding mega-stardom as the first Bond, he also had jobs as a lorry driver, a lifeguard at Portobello swimming baths, a builder, an artist’s model for the Edinburgh College of Art, and a coffin polisher.

So many amazing films. Expect a few seasons on the TV celebrating his life and works.
