Sean Connery is reputedly argumentative and tight-fisted; he is also fiercely patriotic (he sports a Scotland Forever tattoo), a consummate professional and, now in his 70s, still dashing, charismatic and regarded by some as the world's sexist man. Born into a poor Edinburgh family, Sean Connery dreamed of being rich enough to own a piano. After time as a choirboy, coffin polisher, nude model and bodybuilder, he decided he wanted to act, and his perseverance finally paid off when he beat better-known competition to play the first James Bond in Dr No. His suave and sophisticated 007 became a worldwide cult figure and turned him into a (reluctant) superstar.
