Sir Sean Thomas Connery KBE (born 25 August 1930) is a Scottish actor. He has won an Academy Award, two BAFTA Awards (one of them a BAFTA Academy Fellowship Award) and three Golden Globes (including the Cecil B. DeMille Award and a Henrietta Award). He is known for his charm and good looks, which have made him very famous. He is best known for playing James Bond in several of the James Bond movies. Connery is the tallest actor to play James Bond to this day.[3][4]

Personal life

He was born in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh. He was born as Thomas Connery, but later added Sean as his stage name which is what most people call him. Connery was married to Diane Cilento from 1962 until they divorced in 1973. He has been married to Micheline Roquebrune since 1975. He has a son, actor Jason Connery, by Cilento.

Health

In 1993, news that Connery was undergoing radiation treatment for an undisclosed throat ailment sparked media reports that the actor was suffering from throat cancer following years of heavy smoking, and he was falsely declared dead by the Japanese and South African news agencies. In 2008, he chipped a bone in his shoulder after falling while playing golf. In October 2009, he told Wine Spectator magazine that he has been diagnosed with a heart condition.[5]
