Sir Sean Connery has died at the age of 90.

His acting career spanned decades and during that time he won an Oscar (for his role in The Untouchables), two Baftas and three Golden Globes.

Of course, he will best be remembered for his portrayal of James Bond. Starting with Dr No, he went on to portray the spy in seven films.

He starred in many other great films including Marnie (1964), Murder on the Orient Express (1974), The Man Who Would Be King (1975), The Name of the Rose (1986), Highlander (1986), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), The Hunt for Red October (1990), Dragonheart (1996), The Rock (1996), and Finding Forrester (2000).

Connery was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000 and marked his 90th birthday in August. His death was confirmed by his family, according to the BBC.

He announced his retirement in 2005. He voiced a James Bond videogame the same year, and he subsequently did some other voice acting, playing the title character in the animated short Sir Billi the Vet and again in 2010 for Sir Billi.

He was a legend and he will be missed.

Connery was married to actress Diane Cilento from 1962-73. The couple divorced in 1973 and Cilento died in 2011. Connery is survived by his second wife, painter Micheline Roquebrune, whom he married in 1975; his son by Cilento, actor Jason Connery; and a grandson from Jason’s marriage to actress Mia Sara.
