Sean Connery’s acting debut took place in 1956 in the BBC production of “Requiem for a Heavyweight (via The Economic Times). He would go on to star in seven James Bond films between 1962 and 1983 — “Dr. No,” “From Russia with Love,” “Goldfinger,” “Thunderball,” “You Only Live Twice,” “Diamonds are Forever,” and “Never Say Never Again,” as TMZ reported. The website clarified that according to his death certificate, Connery had suffered specifically from atrial fibrillation — basically, an irregular heart rate that can increase the risk of other heart-related health problems.

Life after Bond brought the actor to new projects that fans would come to cherish. In 1988, he took home the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his stoic portrayal of a Chicago police officer trying to bring Al Capone to justice in “The Untouchables.” The year prior, he was granted the British Film Academy award after appearing in “The Name of the Rose” alongside Christian Slater and Valentina Vargas (via Biography).

Among other notable honors and merits, Connery was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000 and granted the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006 (per Biography).
