Sir Sean Connery to receive lifetime EFA award in Berlin

In recognition of his outstanding career, Sir Sean Connery will receive the EUROPEAN FILM ACADEMY LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD at the European Film Awards on December 3 in Berlin.

Sir Sean Connery has not only famously embodied the world's best known secret agent, James Bond, but in a career which has spanned over fifty years, he has created some of cinema's most unforgettable characters in such films as MARNIE by Alfred Hitchcock, MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS by Sidney Lumet, THE WIND AND THE LION by John Milius and THE UNTOUCHABLES by Brian de Palma. He has acted in more than seventy films and worked with a great variety of directors including Mikheil Kalotozishvili for THE RED TENT, John Boorman for ZARDOZ, Jean-Jacques Annaud for THE NAME OF THE ROSE, John McTiernan for THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER, Fred Schepisi for THE RUSSIA HOUSE, and Gus Van Sant for FINDING FORRESTER.

It is a great pleasure for the European Film Academy to present the Lifetime Achievement Award to Sir Sean Connery for this impressive dedication to the world of film.

Sir Sean and Lady Connery will be among the guests at the European Film Awards Ceremony on December 3 in Berlin during which a total of 19 awards will be presented.

Sir Sean Connery is truly one of the few movie "superstars" truly worthy of the designation, actor Sean Connery was born to a middle-class Scottish family in the first year of the worldwide Depression. Unhappy with his austere surroundings, Connery quit school at the age of 15 to join the navy (he reportedly still bears his requisite tattoos, one reading "Scotland Forever" and the other "Mum and Dad").

He is known to have acted in more than 75 pictures of which (a long list):
