Tributes have poured in after news emerged of the acting legend's death. His portrayal of James Bond remains one of cinema's greatest contributions.
We send our sincerest condolences to his family and to his many fans around the world. I didn't know him but he was a remarkable actor.
A real screen legend; oft imitated by all! From bricklayer to Sean Connery enjoyed 50 year film career but he will undoubtedly be remembered as the first — and some say definitive — James Bond.
He has two tattoos from this time - one reading 'Mum and Dad' and another 'Scotland Forever'. The keen bodybuilder then undertook a variety of jobs, including a stint as a bricklayer, a lifeguard and an artist's model for the Edinburgh College of Art.
Under the name Thom Connery he was placed third in the tall man's division he was 6ft 2in of the Mr Universe contest.
The stage came calling when a friend suggested he try out for a production of South Pacific. He got a part in the sailors' chorus and so began his acting career.
He was also a gifted footballer. While touring with the musical, he was offered a contract by former Manchester United manager Sir Matt Busby, who saw him play in a friendly against a local side.
His first major acting credit came in British gangster film No Road Back. Connery directed The Bowler and the Bunnet , a short documentary for STV about how Clydeside shipyard bosses attempted to create a closer relationship with the workers, and in The Molly Maguires , he played a rebellious coalminer in 19th-century Pennsylvania.
Box office returns made the concessions worth it. He refused further inducements to return and Roger Moore , who had been shortlisted for Bond in Dr No, took over for Live and Let Die , proving a lightweight but acceptable substitute.
However, the failure of this melodrama precluded a second movie, although it did give him the opportunity to play a brutal police inspector who has a nervous breakdown after a suspect dies from a beating.
The film opened the way for Connery to enter second adulthood as a mature hero, standing often literally head and shoulders above most of his co-stars.
Where Bond was always on the winning side, amoral and assured, Connery began appearing as a lost-cause moralist.
He also shed the toupee he had worn in the Bond movies — he had started losing his hair at the age of 21 — and all the inhibitions to which sex objects and superstars are prey.
He was now free to tackle a variety of roles for different studios. After a few less than inspiring ventures, he returned for his valedictory performance as Bond in the aptly titled Never Say Never Again , a virtual rerun of Thunderball.
He was not too old though to play the 2,year-old warrior in the mystical tosh Highlander nor William von Baskerville in The Name of the Rose both Retrieved 25 August It's all in the hand-shake".
