This really saddens me. Regardless of the scandal that ended his career, I've always remembered hin fondly.

He seemed to emit a cosy, beige, 70s warmth. To me, at least!

that's a damn shame - he got the Covids I understand. I adored Cannon & Ball as a kid, and saw 'em on Blackpool Pier back in the early 80s.

Aye, I saw him there too. He did the face-pulling, "he's lookin' at me funny, Tommy," routine to the guy sat right next to me.

All seems like another life, now.

Oh, how tragic. What a legacy and not just the Bond films but some others like The Untouchables and even bizarre near experimental movies like Zardoz. We won't see his like again, one of the last amongst the working-class actors who made a career in the movies.

Not many will leave such a fine acting legacy. RIP Sean Connery.

RIP Sean Connery. Sad news

Terribly sad news about Sean Connery. He had many fine roles and will be greatly missed. RIP.

I read in Empire years ago that the reason Connery got the part of Bond was to do with how he walked away from the first audition - they were watching him out of the window, and he walked like a jaguar, apparently. They wanted that predatory cool.

Martin McKenna, illustrator of Warhammer, Dagon and other titles too numerous to mention has died.

That's a real shame. I loved his work on the Fighting Fantasy books, he was fantastic.

Hear, hear. Played through his Legend of the Shadow Warriors for the first time during Lockdown 1.0, very atmospheric. He originally made an impression on me with his portrait stuff for Call of Cthulhu, though. RIP.
