    Throughout his career, he took on many different roles but decided to keep his signature Scottish accent through each individual role. This made for some terrible performances as well as some great ones. Connery is a proud supporter of the Scottish National Party and his love for Scotland and his battle for its independence delayed his knighting. Despite all this, he was given the Knight's Bachelor's Badge from the Queen in 2000. During the ceremony, he wore traditional Scottish garments which appalled certain members of the British press.

    Filmography

    Outside of his role as James Bond, Connery portrayed Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, a Spanish-Egyptian immortal in the 1986 fantasy film Highlander. Connery would also famously portray Dr. Henry Jones, Sr., father of Indiana Jones in the 1989 adventure film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

    Game Appearances

    The only time Sean Connery had anything to do with a video game was when he gave his voice to James Bond in the third person shooter, 007: From Russia with Love, 42 years after the original movie was released.
