James Bond actor Sir Sean Connery dies aged 90

Sir Sean Connery has died at the age of 90.

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.


His acting career spanned decades and his many awards included an Oscar, two Bafta awards and three Golden Globes.

His Academy Award came in 1998 when he took home the statuette for best supporting actor for his role as a tough Irish police officer in The Untouchables.

Two years later Sean was knighted by the Queen in 2000 for his services to film drama.


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

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.

In August, he celebrated his 90th birthday.
