Early Life

In late 1951, Connery took on a job assisting behind the scenes at the King’s Theatre. In 1953, during a bodybuilding contest in London, one of the competitors remarked that auditions were being held for a production of South Pacific, and Connery was cast as one of the Seabees chorus boys.

He was cast as Marine Cpl. Hamilton Steeves, the youngster’s closest friend, by the time they reached Edinburgh.

While in Edinburgh, The Valdor gang, one of the city’s most dangerous groups, targeted Connery. He was accosted by them in a billiard hall where he thwarted their attempt to steal his jacket and was then followed by six gang members to a 15-foot-high balcony at the Palais de Danse.

There, Connery took on the gang members single-handedly, grasping one by the throat and another by the biceps, and cracked their skulls together. The gang subsequently treated him with great deference and gave him a rep as a “tough guy.”


He became friends with an American director during the production of ‘South Pacific’ who later introduced him to ‘Maide Vale Theatre.’ Connery vegan working for different TV series and movies. In 1957, he did minor roles in the movies ‘Action of the Tiger, ‘No Road Back,’ and ‘Time Lock.’

In the melodrama Another Time, Another Place (1958), Connery played a British reporter named Mark Trevor caught in a love triangle with Lana Turner and Barry Sullivan. During production, Stompanato, Turner’s jealous ex-boyfriend from Los Angeles, suspected that she was having an affair with Connery. Stompanato stormed onto the film set and pointed a gun at Connery, only to have Connery disarm him and knock him flat on his back.

Connery’s breakthrough came in the role of British secret agent James Bond. He was reluctant to commit to a film series, but understood that if the films succeeded, his career would greatly benefit. Between 1962 and 1967, Connery played 007 in Dr. No, From Russia with Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, and You Only Live Twice, the first five Bond films produced by Eon Productions. After departing from the role, Connery returned for the seventh film, Diamonds Are Forever, in 1971.

Sean Connery’s performance as James Bond was greatly influenced by Terence Young, who assisted him in polishing his technique while also benefiting from his physical beauty and presence for the action. “Terence took Sean under his wing,” Lois Maxwell recalled. “He took him to dinner, showed him how to walk, talk, even how to eat.”

In 1987, Connery starred in Brian De Palma’s The Untouchables, doing so as a hard-nosed Irish-American cop alongside Kevin Costner’s Eliot Ness. The film was well received by critics and audiences alike.

Connery starred in Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), playing Henry Jones, Sr., the film’s main character. Ford praised Connery for his efforts at the writing stage. “It was amazing to see how far he got into the script and attempted to capitalize on narrative possibilities,” said Ford of Connery’s contributions.

Connery rejected the opportunity to play Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings films, stating that he did not understand the script. He was offered US$30 million in cash and 15% of worldwide box office earnings, which would have made him US$450 million. He also turned down the chance to portray Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter series, and The Matrix.

On 8 June 2006, Connery announced his retirement from acting following his receipt of the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award. According to reports, Connery’s contempt for “the idiots now making movies in Hollywood” was a contributing factor in his decision to retire.

Diane Cilento played opposite Connery in Anna Christie (1923) and doubled for her spouse’s co-star Mie Hama in You Only Live Twice (1967). She exchanged vows with Connery in 1962 after being best known for her part in Tom Jones, which received her an Oscar nomination. In 1971, the two went their separate ways.

Connery’s longest relationship was to Micheline Roquebrune, who he was married to for 45 years. The connection between the two began at a sports event in Casablanca, Morocco. In 1975, the pair exchanged vows and attended a variety of red carpet events to celebrate significant moments in their relationship.

My view is that to get anywhere in life, and you have to be anti-social; otherwise, you’ll end up being devoured. I’ve never been particularly social, anyway, but other people’s attitude has usually provoked fifty percent of it if I’ve ever been rude. Though I do admit, like most Celts, I’m moody. It’s fine until people try to cheer you up with gems like, ‘snap out of it’ or ‘Come on, now

But as a Scot with a lifelong love of Scotland and the arts, I believe the opportunity of independence is too good to miss. Simply put, there is no more creative an act than creating a new nation

You know, the Oscar I was awarded for The Untouchables is a wonderful thing, but I can honestly say that I’d rather have won the U.S. Open Golf Tournament

Lessons of Success

It’s OK To Say No – You don’t have to accept every chance that comes your way. Connery refused a potentially big part as Gandalf in “The Lord of the Rings” and the Architect in “The Matrix” because he didn’t want to be typecast.

A New Challenge is Good – Connery grew weary of the James Bond persona and despised his character after it followed him for the rest of his life. He outgrew the part and learned what lessons it could teach him to make him a better person, then moved on to what was next in his never-ending drive to become one of the greatest at his field.

Never Give Up – Despite being medically discharged from the service, Connery refused to give up. Instead, he set out on a lifelong quest for personal growth and development that would last until his death. He never stopped learning, training, expanding his horizons, and stretching himself to new heights.
