'Sean Connery'


   Sean Connery was named Thomas Sean Connery and was born in 1930. When a child, Connery spent his early mornings delivering milk bottles before going to school, just to help his family make ends meet. Under those circumstances, it is incredible to think of what Connery managed to accomplish. From the poor Fountainbridge boy sprung a gifted actor, with the talent and the will and, yes, the looks to make it. More than 70 years later the poor boy is one of the most famous people ever to exist, rich celebrated and knighteds

     Sean's childhood shaped him in many important ways. His accent, unique among actors, was an important instant trademark for a budding actor, while the harsh conditions of his early surroundings created toughness - along with an extreme generosity for the causes he believes in. But most of all, he was born a Scotland. Quitting school, Connery joined the Royal Navy when still a teenager. Unhappy with the system, he developed ulcers and eventually got away from the navy. 

     But there were moments of happiness as well. In 1975, he married present wife Micheline Roquebrune. He had met her in a Moroccan golf tournament the year before, and they instantly took a liking to each other and found a love that has lasted until today.
