Dementia ‘Took Its Toll’ on Sean Connery, Wife Says


Sean Connery, the actor who originated the role of James Bond, had dementia in the last few months of his life, his wife, Micheline Roquebrune, told The Daily Mail. Mr. Connery died this weekend at age 90 in the Bahamas.

Ms. Roquebrune, who was married to Mr. Connery for 45 years, said the actor “was not able to express himself” in the months leading up to his death. “It was no life for him,” she said. “At least he died in his sleep and it was just so peaceful.”

Mr. Connery played the role of the beloved British secret agent in “Dr. No” (1962), “From Russia With Love” (1963), “Goldfinger” (1964), “Thunderball” (1965), “You Only Live Twice” (1967), “Diamonds Are Forever” (1971) and “Never Say Never Again” (1983).

Ms. Roquebrune, a Moroccan-French painter, married Mr. Connery in 1975. She told The Mail he was a “model of a man” and that life would “be very hard without him.”
