Sir Sean Connery, born 1930. Actor (Nassau, Bahamas) 1993

Not on display

  • Scottish Art
Edinburgh-born Sean Connery tried his hand at being a milkman, lifeguard, coffin-polisher and artists' model before the James Bond movies propelled him to stardom. Connery takes a lively interest in Scottish politics. He has also endowed the Scottish Education Trust with the profits of the film 'Diamonds Are Forever'. Annie Leibovitz's photograph, which was made especially for the Scottish showing of her exhibition and as a gift to Scotland, expertly captures Sean Connery's contained strength and intelligence.
