Very sad, but a very good run. So many classic roles, from 'The Man Who Would be King' to the James Bond franchise (he WAS James Bond as far as I was concerned) to even tiny roles in movies like 'The Longest Day'. The classic accent copied by so many impersonators, I am going to watch some SNL 'Jeopardy' skits to cheer me up.

Yeah, just saw the news on TV this morning. Another legend of the "Golden Screen" gone too soon.

I named my son Sean because Sean Connery was my favorite actor.

SailingGuy31 Oct 2020 6:55 a.m. PST

The lead in one of my favorite movies of all times…"The Wind and the Lion". Not to mention, the best Bond ever. Rest in peace Sean.

And I named my son Sean because of
him also.

A fine actor, who will always be THE James Bond for many people.

Personally, though, I loved his performances in The Man Who Would be King and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade best.

I saw him at the Opera, Madame Butterfly (if I recall correctly) for the curious, in NY in 2007. He was very perky and did a few dance moves for the crowd. He seemed to be a cheerful, light-hearted guy. Sorry to see him go.

Dead at 90.
A rich full life, and he is missed.

skipper John31 Oct 2020 7:45 a.m. PST

I think by 90 most folks have had enough, anyway. Still, there will never be another one like him.

I know that Michael Caine is crying!

Thresher0131 Oct 2020 9:18 a.m. PST

Yea, a very sad day indeed.

I really loved his work. He was a superb actor, and will be horribly missed.

Not many good ones left anymore, RIP Zardoz.

He was James Bond, anything else was just the icing to the cake.
All good things, including actors, must come to an end.

Can anyone imagine film without him?

Many years ago, I discovered just how much affection I had for the man, affection I didn't even consciously recognize until the moment he appeared on screen as Richard The Lionheart in the otherwise disappointing "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves."

When he lifted his helmet, and the audience saw him, there was a collective gasp and a shared feeling of warmth I would never have predicted or expected. At that moment, I realized how much the man's presence on screen meant to me and everyone else.

I've been dreading this day….

I hope a piper plays "Scotland The Brave" at your resting place.

Amazing actor, great man, huge loss

Rest in peace, Danny. Peachy will bring you home…

Great actor. Another pair of shoes that will never be filled.
Rest in peace Sir Connery. Thank you for the many screen moments that will never be surpassed.

raylev331 Oct 2020 6:04 p.m. PST

Long live Zardoz!

Desert Fox31 Oct 2020 6:17 p.m. PST

Loved him as Bond and A Bridge Too Far; thought he was magnificent in The Hill.

Perris070731 Oct 2020 6:19 p.m. PST

I loved his role with Nicholas Cage in The Rock.

John Leahy Supporting Member of TMP31 Oct 2020 8:05 p.m. PST

RIP. He was one of a kind. My son is also named Sean.

Thanks

John

I thought he was good in Rising Sun.
