How infinitely sad to hear the news Sir Sean Connery has passed away. He and Roger were friends for many decades and Roger always maintained Sean was the best ever James Bond. RIP— Sir Roger Moore (Legacy) (@sirrogermoore)October 31, 2020George Lucas, who created the “Indiana Jones” franchise, wrote: “Sir Sean Connery, through his talent and drive, left an indelible mark in cinematic history. His audiences spanned generations, each with favorite roles he played. He will always hold a special place in my heart as Indy’s dad. With an air of intelligent authority and sly sense of comedic mischief, only someone like Sean Connery could render Indiana Jones immediately into boyish regret or relief through a stern fatherly chiding or rejoiceful hug. I’m thankful for having had the good fortune to have known and worked with him. My thoughts are with his family.”
Mike Myers, who parodied the James Bond franchise with his popular Austin Powers persona, said “I loved Sean Connery as did my British father. A great actor. A legend,” in a statement toVariety.Sam Neill, who starred with Connery “The Hunt for Red October,” tweeted, “Every day on set with Sean Connery was an object lesson in how to act on screen. But all that charisma and power- that was utterly unique to Sean. RIP that great man, that great actor.”Read more: Variety »
