Sean Connery has died at the age of 90. He had a long list of movies. He retired from acting in 2003 but just look at this list of movies he was in. Of course, the first one most think of would be the James Bond movies, he starred in 7 of them and is considered by many to be the best Bond. That’s debatable, of course. However, he was also in Murder on the Orient Express, Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, Highlander, The Untouchables, The Hunt For Red October, The Rock, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and many more.
He won an Academy Award, 2 BAFTAs, 3 Golden Globes, and various lifetime achievement awards. He was knighted in 2000. I mean, the list of things the man did was as long as your arm.
This news is just breaking so there’s not a lot of details, not that those are needed. He was a tremendous actor who left a long legacy.
