Star Wars director George Lucas, who also created the Indiana Jones character, said Sir Sean "left an indelible mark in cinematic history".
With an air of intelligent authority and sly sense of comedic mischief, only someone like Sean Connery could render Indiana Jones immediately into boyish regret or relief through a stern fatherly chiding or rejoiceful hug.
My thoughts are with his family. Sir Sean was a long-time supporter of Scottish independence, saying in interviews in the run-up to the referendum that he might return from his Bahamas home to live in Scotland if it voted to break away from the rest of the UK.
Our nation today mourns one of her best loved sons. Sean will be remembered best as James Bond - the classic - but his roles were many and varied.
Sean was a lifelong advocate of an independent Scotland and those of us who share that belief owe him a great debt of gratitude.

Obituary: Sir Sean Connery. In complete contrast to anything he had done before, Connery played the mutinous inmate of a British military prison camp in north Africa in The Hill , the first of five films he made with Sidney Lumet.
He also gave a wonderfully eccentric performance as a bohemian poet in A Fine Madness Connery directed The Bowler and the Bunnet , a short documentary for STV about how Clydeside shipyard bosses attempted to create a closer relationship with the workers, and in The Molly Maguires , he played a rebellious coalminer in 19th-century Pennsylvania.
Box office returns made the concessions worth it. He refused further inducements to return and Roger Moore , who had been shortlisted for Bond in Dr No, took over for Live and Let Die , proving a lightweight but acceptable substitute.
However, the failure of this melodrama precluded a second movie, although it did give him the opportunity to play a brutal police inspector who has a nervous breakdown after a suspect dies from a beating.
The film opened the way for Connery to enter second adulthood as a mature hero, standing often literally head and shoulders above most of his co-stars.
Where Bond was always on the winning side, amoral and assured, Connery began appearing as a lost-cause moralist.
He also shed the toupee he had worn in the Bond movies — he had started losing his hair at the age of 21 — and all the inhibitions to which sex objects and superstars are prey.
He was now free to tackle a variety of roles for different studios. After a few less than inspiring ventures, he returned for his valedictory performance as Bond in the aptly titled Never Say Never Again , a virtual rerun of Thunderball.
He was not too old though to play the 2,year-old warrior in the mystical tosh Highlander nor William von Baskerville in The Name of the Rose both As the sturdy, mature mentor to the FBI investigator Eliot Ness Kevin Costner , Connery brought authority to the role of a retired policeman who gets shot dozens of times but still manages to crawl around and disclose the name of his killer.
The introduction was a kind of challenge, or seduction, invariably addressed to an enemy. In the early 60s, Connery's James Bond was about as dangerous and sexy as it got on screen".
During the filming of Thunderball in , Connery's life was in danger in the sequence with the sharks in Emilio Largo 's pool. He had been concerned about this threat when he read the script.
Connery insisted that Ken Adam build a special Plexiglas partition inside the pool, but this was not a fixed structure, and one of the sharks managed to pass through it.
He had to abandon the pool immediately. Although Bond had made him a star, Connery grew tired of the role and the pressure the franchise put on him, saying "[I am] fed up to here with the whole Bond bit"  and "I have always hated that damned James Bond.
I'd like to kill him". He was, and is, a much better actor than just playing James Bond, but he became synonymous with Bond.
He'd be walking down the street and people would say, 'Look, there's James Bond'. That was particularly upsetting to him".
While making the Bond films, Connery also starred in other films such as Alfred Hitchcock 's Marnie and Sidney Lumet 's The Hill , which film critic Peter Bradshaw regards as his two great non-Bond pictures from the s.
Connery had said he wanted to work with Hitchcock, which Eon arranged through their contacts. While the film wasn't a financial success it was a critical one, debuting at the Cannes Film Festival winning Best Screenplay.
Playing two former British soldiers who set themselves up as Kings in Kafiristan , both actors regarded it as their favourite film. Film critic Roger Ebert , who had praised the double act of Connery and Caine in The Man Who Would Be King , praised Connery's chemistry with Hepburn, writing: "Connery and Hepburn seem to have arrived at a tacit understanding between themselves about their characters.
They glow. They really do seem in love". In he portrayed Marshal William T. O'Niel in the science fiction thriller Outland. The title, contributed by his wife, refers to his earlier statement that he would "never again" return to the role.
Although the film performed well at the box office, it was plagued with production problems: strife between the director and producer, financial problems, the Fleming estate trustees' attempts to halt the film, and Connery's wrist being broken by fight choreographer, Steven Seagal.
As a result of his negative experiences during filming, Connery became unhappy with the major studios and did not make any films for two years.
The film was a critical and box office success. Many critics praised Connery for his performance including Roger Ebert who wrote "The best performance in the movie is Connery Harrison Ford said Connery's contributions at the writing stage enhanced the film.
His suggestions to George [Lucas] at the writing stage really gave the character and the picture a lot more complexity and value than it had in the original screenplay".
In , he voiced the role of Draco the dragon in the film Dragonheart. Connery's later films included several box office and critical disappointments such as First Knight , Just Cause , The Avengers , and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen ; however, he received positive reviews for his performance in Finding Forrester He also received a Crystal Globe for outstanding artistic contribution to world cinema.
He sensed during shooting that the production was "going off the rails", and announced that the director, Stephen Norrington should be "locked up for insanity".
Connery spent considerable effort in trying to salvage the film through the editing process, ultimately deciding to retire from acting rather than go through such stress ever again.
Connery turned down the role of Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings films, saying he did not understand the script. Connery served as executive producer for an expanded minute version.

Connery was subsequently cleared by officials, but his wife and 16 others were charged with attempting to defraud the Spanish treasury.
Connery died in his sleep on 31 October , aged 90, at his home in the Lyford Cay community of Nassau in The Bahamas. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli released a statement saying Connery had "revolutionized the world with his gritty and witty portrayal of the sexy and charismatic secret agent.
