Sean Connery, former "James Bond" actor dead at 90

Former ‘James Bond’ actor Sean Connery, who shot to international stardom as the suave sophisticated British agent 007 and went on to dominate the silver screen for four decades, has died aged 90.

Winning an Oscar, a Bafta and two golden globes throughout his acting career, Connery will be remembered first as British agent James Bond, the character created by novelist Ian Fleming and immortalized by Connery in films starting with ““Dr. No” in 1962.

Connery retired from movies after disputes with the director of his final outing, the forgettable “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” in 2003.

“I get fed up dealing with idiots,” he said.

Connery‘s influence helped shape the Bond characters in the books as well as the films for years to come – still going strong today, more than five decades after Connery started it. The lavishly produced movies, packed with high-tech gadgetry and spectacular effects, broke box office records and grossed hundreds of millions of dollars.
