Original James Bond actor Sean Connery has quietly passed away in his 90s in the Bahamas
Today is an unfortunate day for the acting world. One of the best known British actors in the world has passed away in the last few hours. This is Sean Connery, who has died in his nineties and whose death has caused reactions in all the media and publications. It is not very common for an actor to have the impact and fame that he had. From the 1960s to the 1980s, his roles made him a global star. While this had been retired during the 2000s, it remained a legend until his death.
Few actors have been as close to a character as Sean Connery was with James Bond. Agent 007’s property found fame during the Connery years, as he represented the character seven times in the movie world. With films like Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger and Thunderball, the actor built a reputation as the face of James Bond. Bond had other actors later, such as Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daviel Craig. However, it will be difficult to debate that Connery is not the most iconic face of the franchise.
He himself, later in his career, tried to break people’s expectations by acting in different roles. That is how he was the father of Indiana Jones in The Last Crusade, one of his most acclaimed roles. He was also able to act in Murder on the Orient Express and Zardoz, although the latter was not very well received.
May Sean Connery rest in peace. The world of acting will never forget what it represented for so many years.
