Sir Sean Connery was a Scottish actor and producer who had a net worth of $350 million at the time of his death in 2020.

He was probably best-known for playing James Bond, but enjoyed an extremely prolific, multi-decade acting career that produced an Academy Award, Golden Globe, and a BAFTA Award.

He appeared in more than 70 films, including "The Untouchables" (1987), "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989), and "The Hunt for Red October" (1990). 

Sean starred in 7 "James Bond" movies.  He is frequently called "the greatest James Bond of them all".

During his life he was also considered "The Greatest Living Scotsman." Connery was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in July 2000. Sean Connery died on October 31, 2020 at the age of 90.

He famously turned down the opportunity to play Gandalf in the original "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

Before Lord of the Rings became a massive worldwide success, it was seen as a VERY risky undertaking for Time Warner's movie studio New Line Cinema.

With a budget of $281 million, the three films (filmed back to back) were the most expensive movies of all time to that point.
