Autopsy: The Last Hours Of…: Sean Connery airs Sunday May 14, 2023 on REELZ
Hollywood legend and the person who made James Bond successful, Sean Connery, passed away on October 31, 2020, shocking the world. For over sixty years before his death, Sean had been thrilling moviegoers as one of the first action heroes.
Sean, who was born during the depths of the Great Depression, would eventually become a global icon despite starting out with virtually nothing. In 1962, when Sean was first cast as Ian Flemming’s literary super spy, James Bond, he was relatively unknown outside of a few small roles on British television. However, within just seven years, he had five hit films with the franchise under his belt and millions in the bank as a wave of “Bondmania” swept the world.
From the outside, Sean’s life looked like it was going swimmingly; he lived to be 90 and died in The Bahamas, surrounded by his family. Behind closed doors, however, Sean battled cancer scares, throat polyps that could prove fatal, and severe dementia in his twilight years.
The fact that Sean’s death certificate would list old age as a cause of death is peculiar given that no one actually does die from old age but rather from the illnesses they acquire in their later years and the body’s inability to deal with them.
If old age is listed as the cause of death, then how did Sean live so long, and what ultimately took his life? Dr. Michael Hunter, a renowned forensic pathologist, will need to examine all available evidence in order to determine what happened to Sean’s body and what ultimately caused his death.
