Like many folk I awoke this morning to the news that veteran actor Sean Connery passed away earlier today. Much is made in this sad news about the proud Scotsman being the first actor to play James Bond in feature films. It's a role for which he'll always be remembered, no matter the many and varied roles he played until he retired from acting a few years ago. While not my favourite "Bond", that prestigious title goes to George Lazenby, Connery is remembered by many as the 007. "Bond, James Bond."
The actor first made an impression on me when I was eleven or twelve years of age. I was watching a black & white film on television, and my mother said: "That's Sean Connery. He's Welsh [sic]."
Minutes ago I did some research. It did not take long as I had remembered two vital research clues: a reporter; the Second World War.
