Actor Sean Connery passed away on Saturday, October 31, 2020.
 At the James Bond 007 Museum in Nybro, it is a day of mourning.


- It's unreal. He was a father figure, says Gunnar James Bond Schäfer, owner of the museum.

Sean Connery is best known for being the first actor to take on the role of James Bond on film. "Agent 007 with the Right to Kill" came out in 1962 and Connery played Bond in six more movies after that.

In Nybro outside Kalmar is Sweden's and the world's only James Bond museum.

- Sean Connery created something incredibly big. Being able to see a lone agent who would save the world in the 60's was unique in the world. And also in color, says Gunnar James Bond Schäfer to SVT.

- They chose Sean Connery because he was a raw and uncut diamond. Ian Flemming did not like him from the beginning, and then Bond developed into the character he has become.

Connery's film career spanned many decades and he was awarded an Oscar, two Bafta and three Golden Globes for his efforts on the big screen. Among his many films are "Jakten på Röd Oktober" (1990), "Blodröd sol" (1993), "De omutbara" (1987) and "Den förste riddaren" (1995).

Did you personally meet Sean Connery?

- Yes, I met him in London in the 90s and had a chat. He had an enormous charisma and charisma.

What will happen at the James Bond 007 Museum in Nybro during the day?

- I'm going to open a bottle of Dom Pérignon and toast and say thank you for everything.

Sean Connery turned 90 years old.
