The Hollywood true legend Thomas Sean Connery who played the original James Bond, unfortunately, passes away at 90. He is the original James Bond of the industry and remains the same forever for his fans. Oh God! 2020 is getting worse day by day. Sean Connery was born on 25 August 1930 in Scotland. His mother was a cleaner, and his father was a factory worker and a lorry driver. He was addressed as Tommy and is one of the tallest guys at school (6’2). He stated that he lost his virginity at the age of 14 to an older woman.
Connery’s Early Life
Connery‘s first occupation was delivering milk. He joined the navy when he was 16 and got was trained at a school. He had two tattoos, one which resembles his family. The other shows ‘Scotland Forever.’ He was designated as the seaman on HMS Formidable but later got relieved due to a duodenal ulcer, affecting males for generations in his family. Later he worked in many fields for his living. Like his father, he worked as a lorry driver, developed his physic in his teenage, and stood in the third position on competing for Mr Universe (1950). He began modelling to earn money and was a football enthusiast. He also received many offers by impressing his physical outlook and determined to become an actor then, which was the turning point of his life. We can understand success doesn’t come so quickly. It’s all about hard work, self-belief, and persistence that makes a man.
