Daniel Craig Honors Iconic Bond Actor Sean Connery After His Death

Daniel Craig, the current actor playing James Bond, is paying tribute to the late actor Sean Connery, who just passed away at the age of 90.

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.

β€œIt 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). β€œSir 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.

Read the statement that was released by Connery‘s son after his death.
