Scottish actor Sean Connery, famous for his portrayal of James Bond, was the first to play the role on the big screen, appearing in seven installments of the franchise, which he played in seven films between 1962 and 1983.

His first Bond appearance was in the franchise's first film, 1962's Dr. No., a film in which he starred alongside actress Ursula Andress. The success of the James Bond films was such that several sequels were made in which Connery also participated: From Russia with Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), Operation Thunder (1965) and You Only Live Twice (1967). In the 70s, tired of the character, he gave his place to George Lazenby, who played Bond only one film, 007 in the service of his Majesty in 1969. The actor did not convince either the critics or the public and the producers decided to convince Connery to return again to the role that gave him fame and thus starred in Diamonds for Eternity in 1971. After this film he gave the witness to Roger Moore, to return for the last time to the role in 1983 with Never Say, Never Again, a film unofficial of the saga produced by Warner Bros.
