10 of Sean Connery’s Most Iconic and Memorable Roles, From James Bond To William Forrester

The screen legend passed away on October 31 at the age of 90

This past Saturday, film legend Sean Connery passed away at the age of 90. The entertainment industry, of which he was part for half a century (he retired from acting in 2006, but returned briefly for a number of voice-over roles in 2012), mourned his death, but celebrated all of his contributions to the world of film—particularly in the action genre. Actors like Hugh Jackman, Sam Neill, George Takei, Alec Baldwin, and more honored them on their social media pages. Connery was a trailblazer and a pioneer; a man of class with one of the most iconic voices and accents in all of Hollywood. Generations upon generations of moviegoing audiences remember him best as the titular secret agent in films like Dr. No, Goldfinger, and Diamonds Are Forever, but he never allowed himself to be boxed in that role throughout his career. In the course of his 66-year career, he left a lasting mark on film lovers, from his star turns in Indiana Jones to The Untouchables

In the gallery below, we look back at 10 of his most memorable roles in commemoration of his talents and artistry.
