Sir Sean Connery died last night at age 90. He - and his characters, especially Bond - was controversial at times, but I always really enjoyed his acting and thought he was very talented. I grew up seeing the Bond films, and for better or worse, they helped to shape my personality somewhat. Sheila O'Malley re-posted an excerpt from an interview with him by Oriana Fallaci, and I think it's illuminating:

While his performance as 007 was spectacular, I do enjoy some of his other movies more. Hunt for Red October is well known, while The Name of the Rose is one I wish more people had seen. 

An outstanding actor. He will be missed.

His non-007 work is quite good. Hitchcock cast him in Marnie.

As a young man, I met Sir Sean once when he was making the movie "The Man who would be King".  My uncle was one of the co writers and had a small bit part.  He was more handsome and impressive than his pics show.

Along with John Wayne, he is one of my all time favorite actors and personalities.  I am glad he passed gently and lived a full life.

I learned from him, especially his Bond, that understated elegance is the coolest way to approach everything. Quality of workmanship and materials speaks best.
