I am a self-professed book addict. That does not mean that my life is only about books though. I love other things as well and among these are TV shows and movies.
Although I started reading when I was five years old, it wasn’t until I was in elementary when I began devouring books in earnest. This was when I chose to spend my recess and lunch time at the library, so I could bury my nose in any book I could lay my hands on during my ride home and before I go to bed at night.
However, before books became the focus of my existence, the world of movie and television was already very much alive for me. I thoroughly relished watching everything on the boob tube and my vivid imagination was awakened by all the films and TV shows I was introduced to at a very young age. As a result, I grew up loving MacGyver, The A-Team, Street Hawk, Knight Rider, and Airwolf as well Jacky Chan‘s Drunken Master, Bruce Lee‘s Enter the Dragon and the iconic British spy, James Bond.
I remember watching James Bond movies with my whole family, including my grandmother, who adored Roger Moore and Sean Connery so much. So, you can just imagine how much of an old soul I was becoming before I even reached six years old.
As a result, Connery became one of my favorite actors and early this year, I was quite pleased when I was asked to write about this estimable man’s life. Before this happened though, I wrote an article about actors who came from humble beginnings and Connery was one of those featured. So, when I was tasked to write an in-depth article about a number of these celebrities, I knew this gentleman was going to be one of my subjects.
So, below is an excerpt of the article I wrote for one of the websites I helped manage and provided content for.
“Sir Sean Connery may be one of the most illustrious actors of his time, but this does not mean that he started out that way. In fact, he was just an ordinary Scot whose first job was being a milkman at the age of 14. Little did he know that he will eventually be polled as Scotland’s Greatest Living National Treasure and The Greatest Living Scot.”

Hope you went ahead and read about Connery’s life and enjoyed it as much as I did when I wrote it. ‘Til next time. Thanks!
