 Sean Connery as James Bond

 

Overview.

Probably best known for starring as the Superspy James Bond 007, Sean Connery has played the Ian Fleming character seven times. But even after he quit playing that part after a comeback in Never Say Never Again, he has continued to entertain the movie fans all around the world. Sean Connery is and probably will be the only star having a career span of such great width and who has throughout his career been the favourite of all age groups. Almost 70 now, Sean has been acting for the last 40 odd years and still happens to be the best of all! He has made many big hits along with a lot of 'have'nt ever heard' movies but there never is a movie in which Sean's performance is below the top quality mark. Sean Connery is by far the best of them all and he has proved that by staying in the race for so many laps....and staying ahead too!
