"Sean Connery" in one of his movies
Hi, today's theme is about Sean Connery, who is one of the most famous Scottish actors in the world. At the same time, he is one of my favorite actors, too.
Thomas Sean Connery was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. We've already seen him in the James Bond series. He is best known for portraying the character James Bond, starring in seven Bond films between 1962 and 1983.
He played the character in: Dr. No (1962), From Russia with Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967), Diamonds Are Forever (1971), and Never Say Never Again (1983). All seven films were commercially successful.
Also, he starred in many kinds of movies like "The Name of the Rose," "First Knight," "Entrapment," etc. I like his perfect charisma, his Scottish accent, and his voice. And in fact, Connery is proud that he is of Scottish heritage. In my opinion, that is why he could perform successfully in Scottish stories.
Especially, he was very impressive in "First Knight." I hope that he can keep his charisma as long as possible.
