Sean Connery was the first actor to play James Bond. He was born on August 25th, 1930 in Fountanbridge, Edinburgh, Scotland.


In 1961 Harry Saltzman and Albert R 'Cubby' Broccoli joined forces to create the James Bond film series. They decided to produce Dr No as their first feature, and after assembling a skilled backroom team including director Terence Young, they set about looking for an actor to play Bond himself. Even in 1961 much speculation about this casting decision filled the gossip pages of the newspapers, with the Daily Express even running a competition amongst its readers about who they thought should play the character. A male model eventually won the competition - interestingly beating Connery on the list, as 7 years later in 1968 a male model would be unveiled to the world as Sean Connery's successor. Other names included David Niven, Richard Burton, Trevor Howard and Roger Moore.
