Legendary James Bond actor Sean Connery died peacefully in his sleep on Oct. 31, 2020, at home in the Bahamas. BBC News reported that Connery had been in poor health lately, but according to his son Jason Connery, much of his family was able to be with him at the end: “We are all working at understanding this huge event as it only happened so recently, even though my dad has been unwell for some time.” Sean Connery is survived by his wife, French painter Micheline Roquebrune, his son Jason, and a grandson, Dashiell.
The Bond actor’s son, Jason, was born in 1963 when Connery was married to his first wife, actress Diane Cilento. Jason is involved in show business just like his parents were, acting in varied projects like a Macbeth in 1997 and was a voice actor in the 2001-2002 animated TV series Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action. Jason was married to actress Mia Sara, who is best known for her role as Sloane Peterson in the 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The couple had a son, Dashiell Quinn Connery, in June 1997.

Sean Connery's grandson Dashiell Connery has gone Hollywood
The acting apple has not fallen far from the tree in the Connery family. Dashiell Connery followed in the footsteps of his grandfather Sean Connery and his father and is also an actor. Dashiell, who inherited his grandfather’s handsome looks, is in the early stages of his own acting career, appearing in a small part in the 2009 film Pandemic (directed by his father Jason Connery) and acting in one 2020 episode of the TV series The Rookie. According to his IMDb page, he has two other films in post-production.
On Oct. 31, 2020, Dashiell honored his grandfather on social media by posting a solitary photo of Connery and the caption “Great Man.” Fans commented on the picture with words of support — “my thoughts and prayers to you and your family,” and “Legend.” In 2010, Sean Connery, a huge soccer fan, told the Daily Record that he enjoyed kicking the ball around a bit with Dashiell when he could.
If Dashiell is even half as good as an actor as his grandfather was, he is destined to have a long and prosperous career in Hollywood.
