Sir Sean Connery

Sir Sean Connery skyrocketed to international fame as the suave, confident (and many say definitive) Secret Agent 007 in six of Ian Fleming’s James Bond films. He starred in John Huston’s memorable adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s ‘The Man Who Would Be King’ and Brian de Palma’s ‘The Untouchables’, for which Sean won a well-deserved Oscar. Sean starred in ‘Entrapment’, which he produced through his own company, Fountainbridge Films, named after the district in Edinburgh where he was brought up.

To promote the careers of talented young people in Scotland, Sean donated his fee of well over a million dollars from his Bond film ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ to co-found The Scottish International Education Trust in 1971.

He has won an Academy Award, two BAFTA Awards and three Golden Globes.
