Sean Connery: 15 Quotes by the Late Actor and His Iconic Roles

 Sir Thomas Sean Connery will forever be remembered as a great actor whose 50-year-long career brought us a great number of outstanding films. The endless charisma and screen magnetism that the Scottish actor had displayed in his iconic role as the original James Bond has since become the stuff of legend, and it was Connery who made us all fall in love with the British secret agent.
The veteran actor was agent 007 in seven James Bond films shot between 1962 and 1983, and his overall portfolio included over 60 films, most of which featured Connery in the main role. Many of these films, such as “The Untouchables,” “The Offence,” “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” “The Hill,” and “The Man Who Would Be King,” are now considered cinema classics.
Unfortunately, the world lost the great actor on late Friday, October 30, 2020, or early Sunday, October 31, at the age of 90. Both Connery’s son and his publicists confirmed that he passed peacefully in his sleep, at his home in Lyford Cay, the Bahamas.
