The Scottish actor Sir Sean Connery has died at the age of 90. Connery was best known for his portrayal of James Bond, being the first to bring the role to the big screen and appearing in seven of the spy thrillers.

Connery went on to distinguish himself with a long and mature career in such films as “The Wind and the Lion,” “The Man Who Would Be King” and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.” His turn as a tough Irish cop in Depression-era Chicago in Brian De Palma’s 1987 “The Untouchables” brought him a supporting actor Oscar.
