#21 Sean Connery
Hometown: Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Known for: James Bond movies
This movie magnate barely needs an introduction. Everyone knows that this Hollywood legend was the first actor to portray the iconic role of 007. To name a few of the actor’s accolades in his illustrious career, he has earned one Academy Award, two BAFTAs, and three Golden Globe Awards. But after filming “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” back in 2003, Sean Connery announced his retirement from the spotlight. However, in 2012, we got a glimpse of him again as he voiced the lead character in the animated film, “Sir Billi”. If you ask us, actors with this magnitude of talent should be making movies forever.
