The Scottish actor made his film début in No Road Back, in 1956 before starring in several features such as Another Time, another Place, in 1958 and The Longest Day, in 1961. It was however when he accepted the part of James Bond, in Dr No, in 1962, in the first of a decades-long franchise, that he earned international recognition. With his suave and debonair charm, Sean Connery turned Ian Fleming's literature violent character into a cool, sophisticated and seductive film hero. The actor reprised the roles seven times, with the second feature, From Russia with Love, in 1963, fully installing the typical ingredients of a James Bond film, that is, sexy girls, gadgets, and humour as well as action sequences. Alongside the popular role of the spy, Sean Connery appeared in several successful features such as Alfred Hitchcock’s Marnie, in 1964, The Anderson Tapes, in 1971 and Robin and Marian, in 1976, opposite Audrey Hepburn. From the 1980s, the actor continued starring in memorable features such as The Name of the Rose, in 1986 and The Hunt for Red October, in 1990 while appealing to younger audiences with Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, in 1989 and The League of the Extraordinary Gentlemen, in 2003. Sean Connery who almost became a Manchester United footballer, turned into a major cultural icon thanks to his embodiment of James Bond that has remained the model for all the other actors taking upon the role and installed in the cultural lexicon the iconic catchphrase 'My name is Bond, James Bond'.
