Remembering the extraordinary life of the legendary Scottish actor, who died at the age of 90

He has enjoyed a long and varied film career spanning 50 years, but Sir Sean Connery will undoubtedly be remembered as the first – and some say definitive – James Bond

His performance in Dr No in 1962 set the actor and former milkman on a path that would lead to Hollywood stardom and all its pitfalls

Roles in Highlander, The Untouchables and Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade have helped seal her position as one of Britain’s most beloved stars, and her brooding good looks and distinct Scottish brogue have earned her legions of fans around the world

Connery has never lost his much imitated accent despite his many years abroad From his home in the Bahamas, he has remained a staunch supporter of Scottish independence

Thomas Sean Connery was born in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, August 25, 1930 The eldest of two boys, he left school at a young age and took up his first job as a milkman, with a horse-drawn cart

At 16 he enlisted in the Royal Navy but was discharged three years later for medical reasons after suffering from a stomach ulcer

He has two tattoos from this time – one with the words « Mum and Dad » and another « Scotland Forever »

The avid bodybuilder went on to undertake a variety of jobs, including a stint as a bricklayer, lifeguard, and model artist for the Edinburgh College of Art As Thom Connery, he was ranked third in the tall men division (he was 6ft 2in tall) of the 1950 Mr Universe competition

The scene came calling when a friend suggested he try a South Pacific production He got a role in the Sailors’ Choir and thus began his acting career

He was also a gifted footballer. While on tour with the musical, he was offered a contract by former Manchester United manager Sir Matt Busby, who saw him play in friendly against a local team

It was author Ian Fleming’s suave and sophisticated Secret Service agent who propelled Connery to stardom

Fleming was initially reluctant to have Connery playing his character. He thought the Scotsman was an ‘overgrown stuntman’ who wasn’t polished enough for the role

He was then so impressed with his performance that he created a Scottish ancestry for the character in his subsequent books

Connery played Bond in seven films – Dr No (1962), From Russia With Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967), Diamonds Are Forever (1971) and Never Never Say Again (1983)

He left the role after You Only Live Twice, frustrated with the repetitive plots, but was won over after his successor George Lazenby failed

Most of his subsequent successes have come as part of ensemble casts, in films such as The Man Who Would Be King, Murder on the Orient Express, and A Bridge Too Far

In the 1980s, a slippery career was revived with The Untouchables (1987), his role as a tough Irish police officer which earned him an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor Future Oscar winners Morgan Freeman and Denzel Washington were also nominated in the category that year.

His role two years later is also fondly remembered as the father of Harrison Ford’s cracking hero in Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, the third installment of the hugely popular franchise

Connery could now charge huge fees and build a reputation as a ruthless contract negotiator He hated the idea of ​​being manipulated by the film industry and was regularly involved in lawsuits

In 1989, the American People magazine voted him the sexiest man in the world, to which the 59-year-old replied: « Well, there aren’t many dead men. sexy, isn’t it?  »

The 1990s brought performances in The Hunt For Red October (1990), Dragonheart (1996) and Entrapment, the 1999 love story / thriller starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, which Connery also produced

By now he was firmly regarded as a senior statesman in the film industry, and in 2000 was knighted by the Queen – an honor reportedly delayed by his vocal support for the Scottish National Party ( SNP)

Connery, once voted ‘Greatest Scotsman alive’, received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute in 2006, when he confirmed his retirement from acting

Throughout his career, he remained relatively cautious about his privacy, but was forced to deny allegations of domestic violence made by his first wife, Australian actress Diane Cilento, before his death in 2011

He was plagued by criticism about remarks he allegedly made in an interview with Vanity Fair in 1993 when he implied that there were women who « wanted a slap »

/ p>

Connery is said to have said: « There are women who trump the thread This is what they seek, the ultimate showdown »

He and Cilento were married for 11 years and had a son, actor Jason Connery

Connery is survived by Jason and his second wife, the French artist Micheline Roquebrune, whom he married in 1975 and who regularly accompanies him on the red carpet

In 2009 he was awarded an honorary doctorate from Napier University in Edinburgh for his achievements throughout his career

He looked relaxed and healthy during his last public appearance, when he turned out to support fellow Scottish man Andy Murray at the US Open in September 2012

The tennis star was shocked when Connery and Sir Alex Ferguson hosted a post-game press conference in New York City and posed for photos with him and his mother Judy

As one of the most prominent supporters of Scottish independence, many expected Connery to make an appearance on the electoral trail ahead of the historic vote on September 18, 2014

His words were used to galvanize support when the Yes campaign launched two years ago, when the star said in a post: ‘The people of Scotland are the best guardian of their own future’

Social worker trapped in indecent images of children said he passed them on to friends for « shock »

Ronnie Park had eight images on two different iPhones and distributed them to his friends between May 2017 and December 2019

The 47-year-old, who is also a stand-up comedian and local radio DJ, suggested « black humor » was behind his actions

Park, who was a Clackmannanshire Council social worker, pleaded guilty to Glasgow Sheriff Court on Friday for possession and distribution of indecent images

Prosecutor Mark Allan told court that Park acknowledged ownership of the device and said he did not own any other

Park was arrested before he was retrieved another iPhone containing five more moving images

Defense attorney Ross Yuill told court that Park received the images on WhatsApp groups and did not search for them

M Yuill added: « These were from people he knew and were considered shocking and a certain level of dark humor was involved

« These were meant to shock or surprise and were sent to friends and not to random people or a cat

Halloween won’t be quite the same this year, with most vampires and ghosts being invited to stay home

But it’s not just here on the pitch that things will be a little different – the moon will offer a rare spooky treat on Saturday night

We’ve all used the term ‘once in a blue moon’, which of course describes things that happen very rarely – like hot summers, dry weather, and snow at Christmas

But when it comes to the actual moon, a blue moon is something that doesn’t happen very often

Now before I go looking for a blue tint, it actually has nothing to do with the color of the moon – not this time at least

When we get two full moons in a calendar month, or four in a season, they are called blue moons And because you only have one full moon every 295 days, you can see why this is not happening. not often produced

This also means that there can never be a blue moon in February, which only has a maximum of 29 days in a leap year

Now if I ask you to think of a Halloween picture I’m sure many of you will imagine a lonely tree silhouetted by a full moon and a sky filled with a cauldron of bats Yes , you read that right, a group of flying bats can be called a cauldron or a cloud, but I think the cauldron is more suitable for this occasion

A real full moon for Halloween is really very rare However, on October 1st we had a full full moon, which means that Saturday night will be a blue moon occasion

The last time we had a full moon on Halloween was in 2001 – which was also a blue moon – and we won’t see another until 2039

So yes, this is a rare occasion, but will we actually be able to see the moon on Saturday night?

Well the good news that after a horrible day with heavy rain in most areas the skies will start to clear in the evening as the rain subsides

The best early evening cloud breaks will be across Moray and Aberdeenshire, but by 11pm most of the continent should be able to get a good view – so that looks good for werewolves

The Shetlands and Orkneys will remain cloudier until the early hours of the morning The sky will look even scarier with clouds towering above the moon and strong winds continuing to blow across the country, so witches, be prepared. you for a bumpy night on these brooms!
