Sean Connery, star of the James Bond films, dies at 90

Sean Connery, the Scottish actor who brought James Bond to the silver screen as part of a four-decade career, has died at 90, the BBC reported. Connery played Ian Fleming’s 007 spy in seven films, starting with Dr. No in 1962, a role he got without taking a screen test, according to Variety. He reprised the role in From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds are Forever, and Never Say Never Again.

Connery died in his sleep in the Bahamas, according to the BBC, and had been in poor health for some time.

Over the course of his prolific career, Connery won an Oscar— Best Supporting Actor for the 1987 film The Untouchables— and three Golden Globe awards. His filmography also includes star turns in The Man Who Would Be King, The Hunt for Red October, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and The Rock.

Connery used his stature as an international movie star to push for the re-establishment of a Scottish parliament, and addressed the first session of the reconvened body in 1999. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh in 2000.

He is survived by his second wife, painter Micheline Roquebrune, his son Jason Connery, and a grandson.
