Connery is widely considered to be the best James Bond actor of all time and he starred in six 007 movies, beginning with Dr. No in 1962.
“It is with such sadness that I heard of the passing of one of the true greats of cinema,” Daniel said in a statement (via Variety). “Sir Sean Connery will be remembered as Bond and so much more. He defined an era and a style. The wit and charm he portrayed on screen could be measured in mega watts; he helped create the modern blockbuster. He will continue to influence actors and film-makers alike for years to come. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones. Wherever he is, I hope there is a golf course.”
Daniel‘s final appearance in the Bond series will be in the upcoming movie No Time to Die, which was supposed to be released in April 2020. The film has been delayed to April 2021 due to the pandemic.
