Sean Connery dies at 90

The legendary actor, best known for his role as the world-renowned secret agent James Bond, Sean Connery has passed away from an unknown cause in the Bahamas at the age of 90.
Rising up from the slums of Edinburgh to the screens of Hollywood, the Scotsman’s acting career had spanned across seven decades; during which he won one Oscar, two British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA), three Golden Globes, and was knighted by the Queen of the United Kingdom.
Born into an ordinary working-class family, it was through sheer hard work and indisputable talent that Sir Sean Connery had risen through the ranks to become one of the most iconic actors in Hollywood history.
To a myriad of fans and actors alike, no one has played the suave yet resourceful agent of Her Majesty’s Secret Service as perfectly and memorably as Sir Sean Connery.
He first appeared as James Bond in 1962 in the film “Dr No” (1962), followed by “From Russia with Love” (1963), “Goldfinger” (1964), “Thunderball” (1965), and “You Only Live Twice” (1967).
After wanting to expand his repertoire of acting roles, Sir Connery did not return to the big screen to once more play the witty role until 1971 in the film “Diamonds are Forever”. He later returned once more to star in “Never Say Never Again” in 1983. However, he had made it clear that it would be his last time taking to the screen as James Bond, as he had wished to not be typecast.
Other movies he had worked on are:
“The Offence” (1972) – taking on the role of a British police inspector, which had also been his first role after leaving the Bond franchise.
Alfred Hitchcock’s “Marnie” (1964) – playing the role of Mark Rutland, who is obsessed with and eventually marries the movie’s namesake.
“A Fine Madness” (1966) – the story of a morally indifferent poet.
“The Hill” (1965) – an American-British war film.
“The Anderson Tapes” (1971) – playing a recently released prisoner in a crime-thriller film.
“Murder on the Orient Express” (1974) – a British mystery based on the book by Agatha Christie
“Family Business” (1989) – a neo-noir crime film based on the novel by Vincent Patrick.
