How much of Sean Connery's work have you seen? That Guy Is Everywhere! Remembering Sean Connery: — Won 1 Oscar. Where Bond was always on the winning side, amoral and assured, Connery began appearing as a lost-cause moralist.
He also shed the toupee he had worn in the Bond movies — he had started losing his hair at the age of 21 — and all the inhibitions to which sex objects and superstars are prey.
He was now free to tackle a variety of roles for different studios. After a few less than inspiring ventures, he returned for his valedictory performance as Bond in the aptly titled Never Say Never Again , a virtual rerun of Thunderball.
He was not too old though to play the 2,year-old warrior in the mystical tosh Highlander nor William von Baskerville in The Name of the Rose both As the sturdy, mature mentor to the FBI investigator Eliot Ness Kevin Costner , Connery brought authority to the role of a retired policeman who gets shot dozens of times but still manages to crawl around and disclose the name of his killer.
He followed these undemanding roles with better ones in the idealistic Russian submarine commander in The Hunt for Red October who defects to the west and a publisher who becomes a reluctant spy and falls for Michelle Pfeiffer in The Russia House.
Connery built an incomparable reputation for driving a hard bargain and there was hardly a studio that he had not sued.
In he married the actor Diane Cilento , and they had a son, Jason, also an actor. They divorced in and two years later Connery married the artist Micheline Roquebrune.
Cilento, in her autobiography, My Nine Lives, painted an unflattering portrait of her former husband, claiming that he beat her on several occasions.
Connery, who strongly denied the accusations, otherwise did little to allay suspicions that she was telling the truth. They want a smack.
Sir Sean Connery has died at the age of 90, his family has said. The Scottish actor was best known for his portrayal of James Bond, being the first to bring the role to the big screen and appearing in seven of the spy thrillers.
Sir Sean died peacefully in his sleep in the Bahamas, having been "unwell for some time", his son said. His acting career spanned seven decades and he won an Oscar in for his role in The Untouchables.
Jason Connery said his father "had many of his family, who could be in the Bahamas, around him" when he died overnight in Nassau.
Much of the Bond film Thunderball had been filmed there. He said: "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.
His publicist Nancy Seltzer said: "There will be a private ceremony followed by a memorial yet to be planned once the virus has ended.
The wit and charm he portrayed on screen could be measured in megawatts; he helped create the modern blockbuster. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones.
In reference to Sir Sean's love of golf, he added: "Wherever he is, I hope there is a golf course. Dame Shirley Bassey, who sang the themes to three Bond films including Goldfinger, paid tribute saying: "I'm incredibly saddened to hear of Sean's passing.
Thomas Connery, named Thomas after his grandfather, was born in Fountainbridge , Edinburgh , Scotland, on 25 August Two of his paternal great-grandparents emigrated to Scotland from Wexford, Ireland in the midth century,  with his great-grandfather, James Connery, being an Irish Traveller.
Connery had a younger brother, Neil. He was generally referred to in his youth as "Tommy. Connery's first job was as a milkman in Edinburgh with St.
Cuthbert's Co-operative Society. When I took a taxi during a recent Edinburgh Film Festival, the driver was amazed that I could put a name to every street we passed.
One tattoo is a tribute to his parents and reads 'Mum and Dad', and the other is self-explanatory, 'Scotland Forever'". Afterwards, he returned to the co-op, then worked as, among other things, a lorry driver, a lifeguard at Portobello swimming baths , a labourer, an artist's model for the Edinburgh College of Art , and after a suggestion by former Mr.
Scotland, Archie Brennan,   a coffin polisher. The modelling earned him 15 shillings an hour. Connery began bodybuilding at the age of 18, and from trained heavily with Ellington, a former gym instructor in the British Army.
Universe contest, most sources place him in the competition, either third in the Junior class  or failing to place in the Tall Man classification.
Connery was a keen footballer , having played for Bonnyrigg Rose in his younger days. While on tour with South Pacific , Connery played in a football match against a local team that Matt Busby , manager of Manchester United , happened to be scouting.
Connery said he was tempted to accept, but he recalls, "I realised that a top-class footballer could be over the hill by the age of 30, and I was already I decided to become an actor and it turned out to be one of my more intelligent moves".
Seeking to supplement his income, Connery helped out backstage at the King's Theatre in late By the time the production reached Edinburgh, he had been given the part of Marine Cpl.
While in Edinburgh, Connery was targeted by the Valdor gang, one of the most violent in the city. He was first approached by them in a billiard hall where he prevented them from stealing his jacket and was later followed by six gang members to a foot-high balcony at the Palais de Danse.
From then on, he was treated with great respect by the gang and gained a reputation as a "hard man". Connery first met Michael Caine at a party during the production of South Pacific in , and the two later became close friends.
He had already begun a film career, having been an extra in Herbert Wilcox 's musical Lilacs in the Spring alongside Anna Neagle.
Although Connery had secured several roles as extras, he was struggling to make ends meet, and was forced to accept a part-time job as a babysitter for journalist Peter Noble and his actress wife Marianne , which earned him 10 shillings a night.
During filming, Turner's possessive gangster boyfriend, Johnny Stompanato , who was visiting from Los Angeles, believed she was having an affair with Connery.
Stompanato was banned from the set. The film is a tale about a wily Irishman and his battle of wits with leprechauns. Upon the film's initial release, A.
Weiler of The New York Times praised the cast save Connery whom he described as "merely tall, dark, and handsome " and thought the film an "overpoweringly charming concoction of standard Gaelic tall stories, fantasy and romance".
Connery's breakthrough came in the role of British secret agent James Bond. He was reluctant to commit to a film series, but understood that if the films succeeded, his career would greatly benefit.
After departing from the role, Connery returned for the seventh film, Diamonds Are Forever , in All seven films were commercially successful.
James Bond, as portrayed by Connery, was selected as the third-greatest hero in cinema history by the American Film Institute.
Connery's selection for the role of James Bond owed a lot to Dana Broccoli, wife of producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli , who is reputed to have been instrumental in persuading her husband that Connery was the right man.
He was so impressed, he wrote Connery's heritage into the character. Connery's portrayal of Bond owes much to stylistic tutelage from director Terence Young , who helped polish him while using his physical grace and presence for the action.
He took him to dinner, showed him how to walk, how to talk, even how to eat". No's opening, and he became a major sex symbol in film. Following the release of the film Dr.
No in , the line "Bond James Bond", became a catch phrase in the lexicon of Western popular culture. Three cool monosyllables, surname first, a little curtly, as befits a former naval commander.
And then, as if in afterthought, the first name, followed by the surname again. Connery carried it off with icily disdainful style, in full evening dress with a cigarette hanging from his lips.
The introduction was a kind of challenge, or seduction, invariably addressed to an enemy. In the early 60s, Connery's James Bond was about as dangerous and sexy as it got on screen".
During the filming of Thunderball in , Connery's life was in danger in the sequence with the sharks in Emilio Largo 's pool.
He had been concerned about this threat when he read the script. Connery insisted that Ken Adam build a special Plexiglas partition inside the pool, but this was not a fixed structure, and one of the sharks managed to pass through it.
He had to abandon the pool immediately. Although Bond had made him a star, Connery grew tired of the role and the pressure the franchise put on him, saying "[I am] fed up to here with the whole Bond bit"  and "I have always hated that damned James Bond.
I'd like to kill him". He was, and is, a much better actor than just playing James Bond, but he became synonymous with Bond.
He'd be walking down the street and people would say, 'Look, there's James Bond'. That was particularly upsetting to him". While making the Bond films, Connery also starred in other films such as Alfred Hitchcock 's Marnie and Sidney Lumet 's The Hill , which film critic Peter Bradshaw regards as his two great non-Bond pictures from the s.
Connery had said he wanted to work with Hitchcock, which Eon arranged through their contacts. While the film wasn't a financial success it was a critical one, debuting at the Cannes Film Festival winning Best Screenplay.
Playing two former British soldiers who set themselves up as Kings in Kafiristan , both actors regarded it as their favourite film.
Film critic Roger Ebert , who had praised the double act of Connery and Caine in The Man Who Would Be King , praised Connery's chemistry with Hepburn, writing: "Connery and Hepburn seem to have arrived at a tacit understanding between themselves about their characters.
They glow. They really do seem in love". In he portrayed Marshal William T. O'Niel in the science fiction thriller Outland. The title, contributed by his wife, refers to his earlier statement that he would "never again" return to the role.
Although the film performed well at the box office, it was plagued with production problems: strife between the director and producer, financial problems, the Fleming estate trustees' attempts to halt the film, and Connery's wrist being broken by fight choreographer, Steven Seagal.
As a result of his negative experiences during filming, Connery became unhappy with the major studios and did not make any films for two years.
