Sean Connery was the first actor to play James Bond, and he did that to perfection on seven different occasions. The Scottish actor performed excellently in many other roles. His ardent fans know that he is so much more than James Bond, but not everyone has that knowledge.
Sean Connery passed away in his sleep at the age of 90. To celebrate him, we will discuss some of his most memorable roles.
Sir August de Wynter – The Avengers
It is important to state that this film is unrelated to the Marvel film franchise of the same name. Here, two British agents had to team up to stop Wynter from destroying the world with a weather changing machine.
Allan Quatermain – The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Connery’s character, Allan Quatermain, had to lead a team of literary characters on a secret mission in an alternate Victorian Age world. This was his last onscreen appearance and is quite memorable.

Here, his character is seen as a god by his subjects. His interpretation of the role set a powerful landmark in his career path.
Michael McBride – Darby O’Gill and the Little People
Here is a much younger Connery, taking part in a Disney movie and singing as a result of it. It was a supporting role, but Sean did a great job at it.
John Patrick Mason – The Rock
In ‘The Rock,’ Connery starred alongside Nicolas Cage to the delight of most viewers. His character, John Patrick Mason, was a notorious prisoner that had escaped from Alcatraz (which had been taken hostage) some three decades earlier.

This is where many of Sean Connery’s fans will find the strongest memory of his works. His adventures in the saga are breathtaking.

Captain Marko Ramius – The Hunt for Red October
Playing the role of a mysterious commander of a top-secret Russian sub that could win a crucial cold war, Connery demonstrated uncommon mastery of his act in this movie.
