    FAMOUS ACTORS CHECKLIST – The Films of SEAN CONNERY

    Useless Trivia
    Birth Name - Thomas Sean Connery

    Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, originally did not like him being cast as Bond for Dr. No (1962) because he felt that he was too "unrefined". The actor whom Fleming embodied Bond in Fleming's mind was 'Cary Grant (I)' . Fleming later changed his mind and admitted he was ideally cast in the role.

    Wears a toupee in all the James Bond movies. He started losing his hair at the age of 21. Privately and in most other movies, he wears none.

    He has two small tattoos on his right arm. One says "Scotland forever", the other "Mum and Dad." He got them when he enlisted in the British Navy at the age of 16.

    Formerly worked as a coffin polisher & a milk delivery man.

    Said in an interview that during the filming of Never Say Never Again (1983), he was taking martial arts lessons and in the process angered the instructor who in turn broke his wrist. Connery stayed with the wrist broken for a number of years thinking it was only a minor pain... the instructor was Steven Seagal.

    Awarded a Knighthood on New Year's Eve, 1999. Formally knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in an hour-long ceremony at Edinburgh's Holyrood Palace.

    Turned down the title role in the original The Thomas Crown Affair (1968), which he later admitted was a huge mistake on his part.

    Turned down the role of Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings series because he didn't want to film down in New Zealand for 18 months, and could not understand the novels.
