Height, but not weight?[edit]

I found that he was 185 lbs in his prime at: http://thebooksaint.wixsite.com/store/007

I don't know how authoritative that is, so didn't add it to the main article. If it is suitable, or if someone else finds a better source, please add his weight to the main article.

Weight can change faster than the weather, hardly encyclopedic. - FlightTime Phone (open channel) 21:05, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

Memoirs?[edit]

Didn't he co-write a book called Being a Scot - partly memoirs and partly Scottish social history? Valetude (talk) 18:22, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request 7 September 2019[edit]

Sean Connery and his wife have lived in the Bahamas, in Lyford Cay on New Providence Island, since the 90's. That area escaped significant damage from Hurricane Dorian, and Connery considers himself lucky. May stories to that effect. Here's one:

 Not done: I'm sorry, but you want the article to say he and/or his property wasn't unduly affected by a hurricane? I cannot say I find that noteworthy. In addition, The Sun is not a reliable source. NiciVampireHeart 14:51, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Infobox could use a better photograph of Sean Connery[edit]

I see it over and over again in Wikipedia articles, and I'll never understand it as long as I live. Sean Connery is shown as an old man in his Infobox photo. The Infobox should contain a photo of Connery when he was in his prime during the James Bond series. Connery was much more handsome and marketable in 1964 than he was in 2008. Most old people are relegated to rocking chairs, and they are hated by the government because they keep collecting Social Security checks. Scrap the current photo for one from the mid-1960s.Anthony22 (talk) 02:06, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

We tend to use the most recent (freely-licensed) good photograph for living people. Usually photos of people in their "prime" are used once they're gone. --Inops (talk) 17:07, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
