The late Sean Connery was seen publicly for the first time in three years a few weeks before his death.
The British actor was the first to film the role of spy James Bond, a part for which he became famous worldwide.
He was born in Edinburgh and starred in numerous films Hunt for Red October to The untouchables to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, almost always with its thick Scottish flair.
His family said he died in the Bahamas after being unwell for some time.
The last pictures of Connery were taken in August when he was celebrating his 90th birthday in the Lyford Cay condominium The sun.
It was said that he rarely left the community where he lived with his second wife, Micheline Roquebrune.

FINAL PUBLIC IMAGES
He may have entered his ninth decade, but there was no doubt about Sir Sean’s superstar smile in the pictures as he stepped out on a golf course in late August.
After the actor was able to charge eight-figure fees for a film role, he had given his agent strict instructions to decline all offers.
Instead, he preferred to spend his days playing golf, which seems to give him the unrefined joy he never really found in filmmaking.
The discerning actor became frustrated with what he considered “idiots” in the industry.
He is said to have almost been hit with the director of his last film, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, in 2002.
On the sun-kissed island of New Providence, which is a tax haven, the British knight was able to relax and be looked after by the community staff.
The last time he was seen away from the Bahamas was in New York in 2017 when he saw he needed a walking stick.
Connery was notoriously private and did not condone friends or family to speak publicly about him.
But a source said The sun back then:: “These days, Sir Sean lives a very quiet lifestyle and just pots around, nobody bothers him.
“Everything is set up for him there, all his needs are met in the Bahamas.
“He doesn’t venture out of Lyford Cay much and instead lets people visit him. He got a little lonely. ”
FROM MILKMAN TO SCREEN LEGEND
The perfectly manicured lawns, the luxury bungalow with its own pool and the high level of security are a long way from Connery’s beginnings in the working class.
He was born in Edinburgh to a truck driver Joseph and a cleaner Effie. His early jobs included milkman, artist model and coffin polisher before finding a career on stage in London.
His sturdy looks, an athletic chest from bodybuilding, and the ability to use his fists in a movie called Darby O’Gill and the little people caught the attention of American producer Cubby Broccoli.
Broccoli had the rights to Ian Fleming’s Bond character, and while the writer didn’t think Connery was high enough to play a British commander, the relatively unknown Scot won the role.
Made for just $ 1.8 million, Dr. was a huge success in 1962 and Connery enjoyed the initial success.
He said, “The first two or three were fun. The cast was fun. Jumping out of airplanes was fun, although it was tough on my hairpiece. ”

The budget for 1965 Thunderball was more than the first three Bond films put together, but that didn’t stop Connery from putting his life in danger.
A plexiglass umbrella that was supposed to protect him from sharks wasn’t big enough and the actor had to swim for it when they came after him.
Connery hated all the attention that went into being the most famous undercover agent in the world.
People said ‘there’s James Bond’ as he walked down the street – and he wanted to be known for being Sean Connery.
Fed up with the “whole Bond thing,” he gave up twice, first while he was doing it You only Live Twice in 1967 and then after manufacture N. enever say ver again in 1983.
His last outing as 007 was so troubled that he refused to make a movie for two years.
Actor-turned martial artist Steven Seagal broke Connery’s wrist while choreographing a fight while legal and financial off-screen problems continued to exist.
AWARDS, FLOPS AND A NEAR PUNCH UP
A BAFTA for The name of the Rose 1986 and Oscar for Best Best Supporting Actor The untouchables In 1988 he changed his mind about the business.
Now the aging actor has been hailed for his acting skills rather than his looks.
Other 80s hits like Highlands and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade proved that he could be more than Bond, James Bond.
A number of memorable flops in the 1990s, including First knight and who mocked a lot The avengers, pissed off again.
He also got tired of the ongoing litigation with the studios over his fees, and often took the producers to court for underpaid him.
The last straw came when he was making a comic book The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen in 2002.
Plagued by disasters including floods in Prague that destroyed $ 9 million, it came to a head when British director Stephen Norrington stopped shooting for a day because a prop was wrong.
When Norrington heard rumors that Connery wanted him fired, he allegedly walked up to the actor and said, “I want you to punch me in the face.”
Connery replied, “Don’t try me” and walked off the set.
Although he made $ 27 million for the film, Connery had no interest in playing any more roles, even with a major check dangling for the fourth Indiana Jones Movie in 2008.
The actor later said about doing The league: “The experience had a huge impact on me and made me think about showbiz. I’m sick of dealing with idiots. ”
After his retirement, he was often seen in New York visiting his 57-year-old son Jason.
Jason was the only child from his 11-year marriage to Australian actress Diane Cilento, who died in 2011.
After dating a number of beautiful women, including Bond girls Jill St John and Lana Wood, Connery settled down with French painter Micheline Roquebrune, 91, in 1975.
DANGER IN THE BAHAMAS
Last year, Connery and his wife were fortunate enough to escape the full strength of Hurricane Dorian, which killed over 30 people when it hit the Bahamas.
They were approximately 140 km from the worst hit area and were taking precautions to ensure their mansion was protected.
“We were lucky compared to many others and the damage here wasn’t great,” he said. “We were prepared for the storm.”
It would take more than one hurricane to rid Connery of his Caribbean satisfaction.
On the idyllic island he exchanged his Aston Martin for a golf buggy and Walther PPK for a golf club.
His home was a five-star private club with its own golf course.
It was heaven for Connery who once said, “The Oscar that I was awarded for The untouchables is a wonderful thing, but I can honestly say I would rather have won the US Open Golf Tournament. ”
