The wife of legendary actor has said that the ashes of her globally famous actor-husband should be scattered in two countries, the Bahamas and Scotland.
Micheline Roquebrune says this is in line with the last wishes of her late husband and legendary actor, Sean Connery, more popularly known as James Bond.
The widow, married to Sean for 40 years, revealed that she plans to hold a memorial service for him near his Scottish home when travel regulations allow it.
She told The Scottish Mail on Sunday, “We are going to bring Sean back to Scotland that was his final wish. He wanted his ashes to be scattered in the Bahamas and also in his homeland.
“Whenever it is possible and safe to travel again, then it is the family’s intention to return with him. We would like to organise a memorial service for him in Scotland, that is our hope.”
She added that she is unsure when the service will ‘happen exactly.’
Sean had been “ill for some time” before he died in the Bahamas, his son recently revealed. Jason Connery shared the details of his father’s final days during a chat with the BBC.
He said that his dad died peacefully in his sleep surrounded by loved ones.
Paying tribute to his film star dad, Jason said his death would be a “sad loss for people around the world.”
The news of Sir Sean Connery’s death at 90 hit the news waves late last month, with his son saying he died peacefully in his sleep in the Bahamas, having been “unwell for some time”.
Sean Connery 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..
His acting career spanned seven 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.
