Legendary actor Sean Connery dead at 90

America woke up to the news on Saturday that legendary actor Sean Connery, 90, passed away in his sleep on Friday night.

Reports of Connery’s death were confirmed by his family, the BBC first reported on Saturday morning. Connery died peacefully in his sleep, while in the Bahamas, having been “unwell for some time,” his son told the BBC.

Son Jason Connery said in a statement that he “had many of his family who could be in the Bahamas around him” when he passed and explained: “We are all working at understanding this huge event as it only happened so recently, even though my dad has been unwell for some time.”

“A sad day for all who knew and loved my dad and a sad loss for all people around the world who enjoyed the wonderful gift he had as an actor,” the younger Connery concluded.

Sean Connery enjoyed a prolific and highly successful career spanning five decades and including some of the most famous characters and films of all time — including the iconic James Bond.

The BBC continued:

His acting career spanned five decades and he won an Oscar in 1988 for his role in The Untouchables.

Sir Sean’s other films included The Hunt for Red October, Highlander, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and The Rock.

Sir Sean, from Fountainbridge in Edinburgh, first played James Bond in Dr No in 1962 and went on to appear in five other official films – and the unofficial Never Say Never Again in 1983.

He was largely regarded as being the best actor to have played 007 in the long-running franchise, often being named as such in polls.

He was one of the greatest actors and I enjoyed all the movies he was in. He was very handsome in his younger and older years! 🙂

Call me weird, but I didn’t think he was so handsome in his younger years, but I loved his portrayal of James Bond. However, as he aged, I think he looked better and better.

He was one of my all time favorite actors,as I believe he was in real life just as he appeared in his movies! He reminded me of my Dad, strong,fearless,stern,sooo wise,and yet a heart of gold,always fighting for the underdog and standing up in righteousness; and yet he always had an amused and mischievous twinkle in his eyes! He will be sorely missed,but never forgotten! REST IN PEACE Sean Connery! May The Lord keep and take your soul to your final destination!

What I wouldnt give to have a debate with you about this. You just say so many things that arrive from nowhere that Im fairly sure Id have a fair shot. Your weblog is terrific visually, I mean people wont be bored. But others who can see past the videos and the layout wont be so impressed with your generic understanding of this subject.
