Sean Connery has died

Postby An Alan Smithee Nation » Sat Oct 31, 2020 5:27 am

Sad news Sean Connery has died. The best Bond, and a great screen presence. My favourite films of his are The Man Who Would Be King and Time Bandits.

No! Not Sean Connery. :(

Such a wonderful actor. The Man Who Would Be King, Murder on the Orient Express, I can't even pick a favourite film he did.

May he rest in peace.

May he Rest in Peace. Truly an iconic acting icon of the 20th century, the first time I ever saw a film with him in it was Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. A great actor all around.

RIP to an acting legend. He wasn't the best actor to play James Bond, when he was on the screen he was James Bond.

It's also to his credit that he managed to break the curse of typecasting, which many if not most actors can never break out of. George Lazenby for instance, who also played Bond, had the curse of typecasting follow him for the rest of his career.
