Hollywood actor Sean Connery has passed away at the age of 90, his publicist said.
Connery was the first actor to portray 007.
Over the years he appeared in 7 Bond films.
Connery has been known for his debonair and swashbuckling personality.
Connery had a tough upbringing. He was raised in near poverty in the slums of Edinburgh.
In his youth, he worked as a coffin polisher, milkman and a lifeguard.
He was a regular at the gym, which eventually helped him launch an acting career.
He turned out to be one of the world's biggest stars in history.
Scotland's former first minister Alex Salmond has condoled the death of Sean Connery.

Connery immortalized the role of 007 in films starting with "Dr No" in 1962.
An ardent supporter of Scotland's independence, Connery had the words "Scotland Forever" tattooed on his arm while serving in the Royal Navy.

The dialogue has all the ums and ahs, botched sentences and awkward small talk one might expect from actual human beings, not slickly intelligent Aaron Sorkin creations. And it’s one of the most tense and exciting films of the year.
