Sir Sean Connery’s Widow Shares Heartbreaking Details Of His Final Days

This weekend, news emerged that acting legend, Sir Sean Connery, had tragically passed away aged 90.

The Scottish actor was best known for playing James Bond, and being the first to bring the role to the big screen.

In total Connery appeared in seven of the spy thrillers.

Connery starred in Dr. No (1962), From Russia with Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965), and You Only Live Twice (1967).

Later on he returned to the role, starring as Bond in Diamonds Are Forever (1971) and Never Say Never Again (1983).

Connery is widely regarded as the greatest ever James Bond – however he also starred in numerous other films, such as The Untouchables, for which he received an Academy Award.

And in 2000, on the ‘proudest day’ of his life, Connery was awarded a knighthood, becoming Sir Sean Connery.

Following a lengthy period of ill-health, Connery passed away in his sleep in the Bahamas.

Now, his wife of many years, the French-Moroccan artist, Micheline Roquebrune, has spoken out following her husband’s death, revealing the heartbreaking details of his death.

She said:

He was gorgeous and we had a wonderful life together. He was a model of a man. It is going to be very hard without him, I know that. But it could not last for ever and he went peacefully.

It was no life for him. He was not able to express himself latterly. At least he died in his sleep and it was just so peaceful. I was with him all the time and he just slipped away. It was what he wanted.

He got his final wish. He had dementia and it took its toll on him. He got his final wish to slip away without any fuss.

Rest in peace.
