LONDON – Sean Connery’s unmistakable voice and unparalleled sweetness have transformed a small British literary figure into a global sex symbol whose appeal has transcended generations.
Long before his death at the age of 90, announced on Saturday, James Bond had grown into a multi-billion dollar global empire with the power to reshape the entire film industry. When the last film in the franchise was delayed earlier this month, Cineworld announced it was closing its 543 Regal theaters in the United States in response.
Connery hadn’t played the role in an official film since 1971 Diamonds are forever, but his version of the character was never outdated.
Connery went on to play a number of iconic roles, including India’s father in the Indiana Jones films. He also starred in The rock and The Incorruptibles in a 50-year career that saw him win an Oscar and three Golden Globes
