Sean Connery Passes Away at Age 90

Sean Connery, the first actor to portray Ian Fleming‘s iconic Agent 007, has passed away at the age of 90. The news of the Scottish actor’s passing came yesterday as fans around the globe began to mourn and reminisce about the man whose talent, beauty, and sexual prowess set the standard for all future James Bond actors to follow. The versatile actor also won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in the movie Untouchables, and endeared himself to younger generations as the father of Indiana Jones in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade as well as the reclusive writer in Finding Forrester. But it is his memorable portrayal of the MI5 spy that proves that even though Connery only lived once, his legend will never die.
