A look back at Sean Connery's iconic portrayal of James Bond

Writer: Florey DM

For most people, 31 October means trick-or-treats and Halloween candies, for "James Bond" fans, that particular day in 2020 will forever be known as the day that the original star of the highly popular film franchise passed into the next life. Sir Thomas Sean Connery, often credited professionally as just Sean Connery, passed away at age 90 last weekend, though no cause of death has been revealed to date. The Scottish actor was the first to portray the eponymous suave spy of the "James Bond" franchise, his portrayal so loved that he went on to reprise the role another six times. Let's take a moment to remember Connery in what, to many, is his most iconic big screen role.


In 1962, the world was introduced to (and collectively fell in love with)
Sean Connery's suave portrayal of secret agent James Bond in "Dr. No".


A year later, "From Russia with Love" hit the big screen, in which Connery could
be seen donning Bond's perfectly tailored suits again for the second time.


Who can forget Connery looking dapper in this white suit? Marking his third portrayal of Bond,
1964's "Goldfinger" is also the first movie in the franchise to receive an Oscar,
which went to Norman Wanstall for Best Sound Effects Editing.
