Sir Sean Connery has died at 90. A complex legacy of some of people’ s all time favourites (for me, Indy Jones and the Last Crusade) but problematic views. A Bond that was suave, dapper and charismatic but defined by a toxic masculinity that he sadly seemed to exhibit offscreen.

Kevin said Connery was playing the suave spy when his dad, Donald E. Smith, used to take him to see the movies, and so felt the pain of losing his father - who died in 2003 - all over again when he heard the news of Connery’s passing.

He tweeted: “He was my Dad’s James Bond, so Dad supported Mr. Connery’s career his entire life, always taking me to see any movie his fave actor was in. I have sweet memories of watching Dad watch his movie idol. So Sean Connery’s passing also feels like I’m losing Dad again. RIP, Dr. Jones. (sic)”
