The Nerdy Photographer Podcast

Oct 6, 2022

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of James Bond, I decided to go on a journey of nerdy self exploration with Agents Scott and Cam from the Spy Hards Podcast and discuss my appreciation for the OG Bond, Sean Connery.

My connection to Connery started at an early age as my mother loved his work. I quickly learned that mastering my imitation of the famous Scotsman was a great way to entertain her.

Connery's career post-Bond had its ups and downs. While I love Highlander, Hunt for Red October, The Rock, and other entries in Connery's filmography, there are some flops in there as well. He also made some curious decisions to turn down roles in The Matrix and Lord of the Rings films that became massive blockbusters.

In this episode, we delve into Connery's career both Bond and post-Bond and I gain a greater understanding of both my appreciation of his work and why he made some of the choices he did.
