Time doesn’t spare noone… Everyone changes with years, but when you notice how rapidly your favorite actor has changed, you feel puzzled.
Sean Connery has starred in more than 70 films. Fame came to him when the movie Doctor No was released, that initiated the series of films about the British secret agent 007 – James Bond.
For someone, Sean Connery is associated with Bond (Sean played this character in seven films), someone likes his Henry Jones more (Indiana’s father), for somebody he is the best cop Jim Malone in The Untouchables, and somebody recalls Ramirez from the Highlander.
Already for several year, Sean stopped acting. There were rumors that the actor suffers from symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, that he begins to forget that he was a great actor and now in this state he is allowed to meet only the family and a few close friends. Later, Connery’s best friend Sir Michael Caine denied this information, calling it an absolute crap and nonsense.
There is a feeling that for 30 years, during which Sir Shaun practically did not change, caught up with him for only two last years.
The change seemed particularly harsh, because Sean Connery, who is the greatest living Scotland, does not actually live in Scotland, but in the Bahamas, away from the all-seeing eye of the press and the British tax authorities. And what happens to him there, even his brother Nil and his only son Jason do not know for sure.
He lost weight and his skin became saggy, his eyes became distracted, the movements are not as confident and sharp as they used to be.
The actor is often accompanied by a “friend”. But the behavior of this friend suggests that he cares about the actor not out of friendly warm feelings, but because this is his professional duty.
