Connery To Be Awarded Top Afi Honour
Scottish Connery is most famous for his role as superspy James Bond, who he played six times between 1962 and 1971, and once again in unofficial 007 movie NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN.
Connery, the 34th person to be presented with the AFI Lifetime Achievement Award, will collect his honour at a ceremony in Los Angeles on 8 June next year (06).
The AFI's HOWARD STRINGER says, "Though best remembered for creating one of the great film heroes of all time, his talents transcend typecasting.
"His body of work not only stands the test of time, but illuminates a career more extraordinary than James Bond himself."
