Original James Bond, Sean Connery Passed Away | Daniel Craig Pays Tribute

Daniel Craig, the actor who is currently playing the role of James Bond, pays tribute to the original James Bond or 007, Sean Connery, following his recent death at the age of 90. Sean was one of the first men to play the role of James Bond 007 on the screen, beginning in the year 1962 with Dr. No. Connery went on to play the espionage icon five more times in what many people say are the best films of the franchise.

He was widely considered to be the best Bond of all time, and the loss of him comes as the fans await the release of the latest film of the franchise, No Time To Die. Daniel Craig is presently at the end of his tenure as James Bond with five films under his belt. He is widely cited as being right up there with Connery as one of the greatest actors of all time to play Bond.

His films have definitely brought new acclaim to the Bond franchise, as well as massive box office success. The last film of Craig’s tenure, No Time To Die, has already faced multiple delays due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It is not slated for release on Easter weekend in the year 2021.

Daniel Craig lamented the passing of Sean Connery in a statement posted to the official Twitter account of James Bond. He also acknowledged what a great loss it is, not only for the fans of Bond, but for the cinematic community as a whole. He cites his influence on cinema and the franchise as the sources of inspiration that will be continuing long after his passing. 

His passing happened overnight, and we would like to inform you that the Bond actor was 90 years old.

The passing of Sean Connery is particularly upsetting to the fans of the James Bond franchise. It is likely that without his take on the character, which was iconic, the franchise would not exist as it does today. Craig does come close to second place, but he is cited as the best Bond.
