Sean Connery-Sean Connery Dead at Age 90

Actor Sir Thomas Sean Connery was a Scottish Oscar winning actor. He played some of the most iconic roles of our time.

Connery as James Bond

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 was also known as producer. His disillusionment with the “idiots today making films in Hollywood” was cited as his reason for his eventual decision to retire from film-making. 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 as Bonds

Connery was in smaller theatre and television productions until he got his break with the Bond films.

Sean Connery Is The Reason We Have Wisecracks in Action-Movies Today. Bogart said them a lot in his movies but they didn’t become an idiom.

He completely revolutionized the movie industry. Every action or bedroom love scene film we see today much of it style of action can be traced back to what he forced the movie industry to accept.

Prior to his Erotica roles in James Bonds there were no roles wee the characters behaved as he and the lady spies. It was considered too hot for television and movies too.

He had theatre training as to what made him such a great actor.

Many of the younger generation perhaps know him from “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” or “The Highlander. Or “King Arthur.” He also starred in movies such as Alfred Hitchcock‘s Marnie and the 1974 film Murder on the Orient Express.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  2. It’s no mistake I wrote October 30 in the article title. I read an article put out by his son saying he passed away Friday not Saturday.
