News of Sir Sean Connery's death at the age of 90 has been met with an outpouring of tributes from across the world. Though the Scottish actor's mark on the silver screen spanned a number of genres, it was his role in The Untouchables (1988) that, finally, won him an Oscar. However, Connery will undoubtedly be best remembered for his portrayal of fictional spy, James Bond, in no fewer than six 007 films across a period of three decades. In his very first appearance as Bond in Dr No (1962), Connery undoubtedly helped shape a cinematic franchise which remains exceptionally popular to this day – nearly sixty years on from its cinematic debut.
In the same way that Connery will forever be associated with James Bond, the character has become synonymous with Aston Martin.
