    Sorry to hear that.

    He said hello to me a few years ago in Murrayfield, walking to David Murray's house. He had bought a newspaper at Wester Corner.

    Very down to earth.

    Most famous milkman in the world

    The real James Bond

    Big part of all our lives, Mike Myers, description of him as the “quintessential Scotsman” came to mind when I heard the news. True, true legend - RIP.

    Sad news. Loved him in The Untouchables, as well as Indiana Jones 3 as Mon Dieu4 mentioned above.

    ďYou wanna get Capone? Here's how you get him. He pulls a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue! That's the Chicago way.Ē

    Wow, I have never been nervous meeting famous folk but Connery was on another level due to his movie profile

    My Grandad was a school friend of Connery, they also played football together.

    A few years back he was interviewed for an American documentary and as part of the set up he walked past Brunstfield and Darroch schools and I was beside him and he was to pout things out to me. I'm sure there is a VHS they sent us after it aired kicking about somewhere at my parents house.

    Sean Connery is James Bond, everyone else who takes the role aspires to be him. I also love The Untouchables and
    PM Awards General Poster of The Year 2015, 2016, 2017. Probably robbed in other years

    Thats awful news. An absolute Edinburgh icon. Everyones mum or granny in the part of the town I grew up in claimed to have had him as their milkman, either some of them were fibbing or he was the fastest milkman known to man.

    Sad news indeed, big Tam was a proud Scot, did a lot of work for kids and although every part he played it was always with his Scottish brogue, he was a fine actor. My favourite part he played was in The Hill, set in an army prison camp in the Lybian desert.
