“But, to me, one of the most important point was his work went far past Bond: right into charity, into household, into national politics and into golf,” Mr. Lazenby included. “A man after my very own heart. A fantastic actor, a fantastic guy as well as underappreciated artist has actually left us.”

Simply weeks back, Mr. Lazenby wished Mr. Connery “all the most effective” on his 90th birthday, calling him “the all-time biggest Bond.”

“Sean, for me, was constantly the man,” Mr. Lazenby created. “I walked in his steps– I had to look and clothe like Sean Connery– I went to his barber’s and also dressmakers. I had no concern when I increased for the duty– he was the person that motivated me to never wait.”

Mr. Dalton, whose very first James Bond movie was “The Living Daylights” (1987 ), stated in a statement: “Sean was a wonderful visibility. A fantastic leading guy.”

On Twitter on Saturday, Robert Carlyle, the James Bond bad guy Renard in “The World Is Inadequate” (1999 ), called Mr. Connery “an innovator, a true legend and a gentleman.”

Producers Michael G. Wilson as well as Barbara Broccoli claimed on the 007 internet site that Mr. Connery transformed the globe “with his gritty and also amusing portrayal of the attractive as well as charming scout.”
