Sean Connery aka The First James Bond,R.I.P.

Sir Sean Connery, a well-known Hollywood actor and Oscar winner of Scottish origin has died today–Halloween Day at age 90, leaving behind a long list of film achievements . However, he will always be known as the First James Bond, an MI6 agent (aka Agent 007)who served at the pleasure of the Queen of England’s Secret Service detail.

He gained international stardom as James Bond, the ultimate professional spy who always gets the fanciest and high-tech gadgets(courtesy of the scientist Q) to fight off enemies, with a license to kill ,do not forget that too. This explains why he was called the international man of mystery.

He gets to travel all around the world by plane,jets and on the ground with whatever means possible. There will always be however that dependable car of his–the Aston Martin.

Being the ultimate man’s man as well as a ladies man, he gets to wine , dine and romance all the lovely ladies during his espionage work but he can always depend on his boss’ secretary Miss Moneypenny (with whom he has a faux love-hate relationship) for added assistance.

Thank you for entertaining us all these years, Sir Sean and rest assured that the enigma and allure of James Bond will always prevail. You had set a gold standard for all your successors to emulate.

I can imagine seeing them now all dressed up in their best tuxedos (your standard evening wear) ,handsome and dapper, raising their glasses of vodka martini (shaken, not stirred as you would have liked it that way) towards the sky as a salute to you as you head towards the heavens. You can also hear the tune of the usual James Bond music theme on the backdrop as well.

And before I forget, one of your successors Sir Roger Moore who had left for the journey to the afterlife ahead of you will probably meet you there and talk of good old times.

Godspeed!

    Beautiful tribute! 💕 He was indeed very charismatic. I enjoyed all of his movies.

    • Same here. I remembered my late father would make sure that he never misses the latest James Bond movie. He enjoys all the action and never boring scenes.

        What a wonderful coincidence. I used to watch Sean Connery’s movies with my father as well. We were both big fan of his.

      • 👍👨‍👧

  2. Sean Connery to me was always the “Iconic” James Bond 007 in the series of films, and all the others couldn’t compare in my mind’s eye! I’ll watch one of his portrayals of Bond this weekend to recall and I’m sure thoroughly enjoy he adventure and uniqueness he brought to the screen in the role. Once saw him on a show being interviewed when he said after getting out of the military and not sure about what he could do for the rest of his life that wouldn’t literally be a failure trying to hack out a living he thanked God he got the chance to be an actor because it was a perfect fit; Perhaps he sold himself short there a bit because being a real secret agent would have fit well too! Thanks for all those exciting fun memories with my friends and family watching your movies Sean! God bless you and yours. Jolly good show and all that sort of rubbish Josie! Well done! 👍👍
