Sean Connery is no more. This Saturday, October 31, the first to bring the character of James Bond to life on the big screen bowed out at the age of 90. If the news had the effect of a cataclysm for the seventh art and the planet people, the causes of the disappearance of the star had not been revealed. Until this Sunday, November 1. In shock following the disappearance of the one who was her husband for nearly five decades, Micheline Roquebrune revealed that the last months of the actor were marred by dementia, as reported by the British tabloid The Daily Mail. “It wasn’t a life for him,” said the painter, “he hasn’t been able to express himself lately. At least he died in his sleep.”
Before Micheline Roquebrune, it was her granddaughter, the journalist Stéphanie Renouvin, who had said more about the death of Sean Connery, on the BFMTV antenna this Saturday, October 31. “When he stopped making James Bond, he wanted to prove that he was something other than a beautiful envelope, with a devastating smile, mischievous and seductive eyes,” she first slipped. “We have the only consolation today to say that he died in the night. He died quietly. He blew in the night around half past one in the morning.” “A very beautiful death”, peaceful, in paradise for Sean Connery, he who had taken up residence in the Bahamas during his last years of life.
Jason Connery, his heir?
Same story as Jason Connery, who also spoke about the death of the actor. Because, in fact, Sean Connery was also the father of an only son, the fruit of his marriage to the Australian actress Diane Cilento. If they share a passion for cinema – Jason Connery having followed in his father’s footsteps by becoming an actor but also a director – the relationship that the two men maintained has not always been good. So much so that, following the disappearance of the eternal spy, questions arise about his heritage and the place that his son occupies in it.
