I’ve been a huge fan of Scottish actor Sean Connery since I was a kid and first heard him say those immortal words on screen, “Bond, James Bond,” in Dr. No.
The great Scot went on to portray Ian Fleming's iconic character James Bond in other films such as From Russia With Love and Goldfinger, and then acted in other fine films such as The Man Who Would be King, The Hill, and The Hunt for Red October.
Paul Whitington at the British newspaper the Independent takes a look back at Sean Connery’s life and work as the actor turns 90.
On one of their various televised travelogues, Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan engaged in a testy duel of Sean Connery impressions. "I'll have a vodka Martini, shaken not stirred," they hissed at each other, their faces contorting into worried scowls as they tried to register the trademark rumbling rasp. They weren't bad either, but then again, everyone thinks they do a good Connery.
