Academy winner and James Bond actor Sean Connery passed away at the age of 90 on October 31. The Scottish-born actor was well-known for his portrayal of '007 on the big screen. His son Jason told the BBC the late actor had been “unwell for some time” and he died peacefully in his sleep while in the Bahamas."
He had "many of his family who could be in the Bahamas around him” when he passed away overnight on Saturday (October 31). 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,” Jason said. “A sad day for all who knew and loved my dad and a sad loss for all people around the world who enjoyed the wonderful gift he had as an actor.”
Known as the sharp and enigmatic actor, apart from being one of the all-time favourite James Bond, the later actor starred in films including The Wind and the Lion (1975), The Man Who Would Be King (1975), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). He won Academy Award in the Best Supporting Actor category for The Untouchables (1987). He was last seen on the big screen in Stephen Norrington’s The League of Extraordinary Gentleman (2003).
Bollywood stars including Ranveer Singh, Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan and many more took to their respective social media accounts to celebrate the illustrious life of Sean Connery and pay tribute to the original James Bond.
