    Sean Connery: James Bond actor dies aged 90

    Sir Sean Connery has died at the age of 90, his family has said.

    The Scottish actor was best known for his portrayal of James Bond, being the first to bring the role to the big screen and appearing in seven of the spy thrillers.

    Sir Sean died peacefully in his sleep in the Bahamas, having been "unwell for some time", his son said.

    His acting career spanned five decades and he won an Oscar in 1988 for his role in The Untouchables.

    Sir Sean's other films included The Hunt for Red October, Highlander, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and The Rock.

    I just found out that Betty White has passed away, just a couple of weeks shy of her 100th birthday.

    She was one of my favorite humans, and although I don't usually say that about people whom I don't actually know (since the famous can present themselves however they wish), Betty White seemed to be one of those truly genuine, caring and empathic people in front of and behind the camera.

    Her 100th birthday celebration will still go on:
