He revolutionized the world and the movie industry with his gritty and witty portrayal of the sexy and charismatic secret agent. Connery was known for his trademark, sexy Scottish accent and, though considerably older than more conventional sex symbols, was repeatedly named one of the most attractive men alive. Aside from the role as MI6 agent 007, he appeared in various acclaimed, blockbusting popular films such as The Hill, The Longest Day, The Offence, The Man Who Would Be King, The Wind and the Lion, Robin and Marion, A Bridge Too Far, The Untouchables, The Russia House, The Hunt for Red October and many more.

He is best known as the first actor to portray the character MI6 agent James Bond in the films, starring in seven Bond films between 1962 and 1983.
Connery was in smaller theatre and television productions until he got his break with the Bond films.
