May he rest in peace.

I was (I still AM, why not?) his fan, I liked his role in The Untouchables. May God rest his soul in a good place!

It used to be the only actor I knew anything about. He's one of the best actors in my opinion. So many good movies.

The best James Bond, sad news, but he did live a long life.

I re-watched The Untouchables during this pandemic, all this time and it's still a damn good movie

Outstanding actor… who else could portray a spaniard with a scottish accent, or a russian with a scottish accent, or in fact ANY ethnicity WITH A SCOTTISH ACCENT!

Sounds like a nice way to go. Probably had a stiff drink then went for a nap.

I loved him in the Highlander. A true Scottish hero.

Sleep well, Sean. Not bad for a lad from Fountainbridge.

I almost forgot about Highlander.

I wish I could forget about Zardoz.

Zardoz is one of those films that seems to get more relevant as the years go by. Give it another watch and you will see the seams of the culture war.

Sean showed up for Zardoz by mistake, he though he was doing Tomb Raider.

I will miss his work, almost always excellent (Zardoz excepted). And every time I hear Russian I expect a Scottish accent.

a pibbur who has given up the only license he ever had.

PS. I read he suffered from dementia. Dementia is actually a major cause of death in the world. DS.
