R.I.P.: Sir Sean Connery (1930-2020)

Terribly sad news in the world of entertainment today.

Legendary actor and James Bond portrayer Sean Connery has died at the age of 90.

Sean Connery: James Bond Actor Dies Aged 90

James Bond Actor Sean Connery Dead at Age 90

Like most fans of Connery's work, I first encountered him as James Bond in Ian Fleming's book of the same name and saw Dr. No (1962) some time in 1969 or 1970. When I was old enough to appreciate his Bond. But he was also known for a lot of his other film work that I adored. You can read about his work in films in the Wikipedia entry that I liked to at the beginning of this blog post. I pretty much liked all of his work, even though the Scottish accent never leaves him, whether he's playing an Arab or an American. :) That said, he will be the *definitive* James Bond for me always.

Rest In Peace, Sir Sean. From now on, all your drinks will be shaken, not stirred.

:(
