On October 31st, the world was shocked by the death of Scottish actor Sean Connery , famous for his role as James Bond on the big screen. Almost a month after the fact, this weekend the actor's death certificate was revealed, which establishes what his cause of death was.
Connery, who was 90, died of pneumonia and heart failure, reveals the US media TMZ, which obtained the documentation
Connery's official cause of death was listed as respiratory failure caused by pneumonia, old age and atrial fibrillation , a condition that can, in turn, increase the risk of stroke, and other complications related to the heart.
According to the certificate, the death occurred on October 31 at 1:30 a.m. at his residence in the Bahamas . In his occupation, the label "retired actor" reads. Death came to him while he slept.
The 90-year-old actor achieved world fame in 1962 with his leading role in the film “Dr. No ”, where he played the historic 007 agent, James Bond . In 1987 his role in "The Untouchables" earned him the Oscar for best supporting actor, which was joined by two BAFTAS and three Golden Globes.
Just a day later, his wife, Micheline Roquebrune, confessed that Connery suffered from dementia : " It was not a life for him. Lately he couldn't fend for himself. At least he died in his sleep, in a very peaceful way. I was with him the whole time and he just left. It was what he wanted, " said Roquebrune, a French painter whom the legendary 007 actor married in a second marriage in 1975.
" He suffered from dementia and this had really negative effects on him, "he revealed. “It was no longer life. He was not able to express himself, "he said about the last days of Connery.
According to Roquebrune, the ashes of the famous actor, who played seven times the most famous secret agent in cinema, will be scattered in Scotland and the Bahamas . According to his wife, this was Connery's last wish.
Speaking from the couple's luxurious Lyford Cay home, the widow said: “We are bringing Sean back to Scotland , that was his last wish. He wanted his ashes to be scattered in the Bahamas and also in his homeland. ”
“ When it is possible and safe to travel again, the family intends to return to Scotland with him. We would like to organize a memorial service for you in Scotland , that is our hope. But we cannot say exactly when this will occur. Sean will be cremated in a private service in the Bahamas and his ashes will be kept until we can travel . We don't know when it will be possible, ”he added.
The son of a truck driver and a cleaner, Connery, left school early. At age 16, he joined the Navy and when he returned to civilian life, he worked as a swimming teacher, bricklayer, truck driver, coal delivery man, bodyguard, and coffin polisher. He also dedicated himself to bodybuilding, before embarking on an acting career
The interpreter always publicly showed his social and financial support to the Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) , defender of Scottish independence, and took advantage of moments such as the ceremony in which the queen Elizabeth II named him Knight, in which he appeared in a kilt, to vindicate his origins.
