There's no doubt that he made an impact in the world of classic movies, however, he hasn't starred in a film since The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen which was released in 2003.

No more starring roles

Fans may have hoped that despite being retired, Sean Connery will return to our TV screens. However, fellow actor and close friend of the Dragonheart star Sir Michael Caine once confirmed to Telegraph that Sean will never star in another movie.

In the 2011 interview, Michael said he had talked to the Academy Award winner on phone but they hardly ever saw each other:

We never see each other because he doesn’t move around a lot now.

He then went on to say:

He (Sean) won’t make another film now. I just asked him. He said, 'No, I’ll never do it.'

Retirement announcement

In 2006, while accepting the American Film Institutes's Lifetime Achievement Award, Sean confirmed that he was officially retired from acting.

Fans of this movie star may be heartbroken that he will not appear in any new films. But with the type of reputation he has built for himself over decades, anyone can relive his heydays by watching one or more of his iconic hits.

His previous roles will always speak for him and his achievements are undeniable.
