Sir Sean Connery, who is set to turn 90-years-old this month, starred in the first five James Bond movies. And after George Lazenby quit following just one outing in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Connery returned for a sixth film in Diamonds Are Forever. However, over a decade later in 1983, the actor returned once again for unofficial Bond movie Never Say Never Again.
The remake of Thunderball came out the same year as Sir Roger Moore’s Octopussy.
And while many film fans probably think this was the last time Connery portrayed his Bond, it turns out he reprised the role again in the 21st century.
It was 22 years after starring in Never Say Never Again that the 007 star leant his voice to a video game adaptation of 1963’s From Russia With Love.
The EA game featured both Connery’s likeness and new voice-over work by the star.

Connery, who lives in The Bahamas, recorded his final time as Bond at Compass Point Studios in Nassau with Terry Manning.
On having the opportunity to reprise 007 yet again, Connery said at the time: “As an artist, I see this as another way to explore the creative process.
“Video games are an extremely popular form of entertainment today.
