Happy 84th birthday to Sean Connery! He was born Thomas Sean Connery on August 25, 1930 in Edinburgh, Scotland to Euphemia McBain, a cleaning woman, and Joseph Connery, a factory worker and lorry driver. Before becoming an actor, Connery’s first job was a milkman at the age of 13. Three years later, he joined the Royal Navy. Connery’s big break came in the role of secret agent James Bond in the film Dr. No. The part would prove to be one of the defining roles of his career and become one of the most iconic characters in the history of cinema.
