“Scotland Forever”. It is written in a tattoo on his arm, when he was a young sailor, that the great Scottish actor Sean Connery’s patriotic spirit is attached. A memorial interpreter of Secret Agent 007 was the most famous face of Scottish independence in the service of His Majesty the Queen, a supporter of the Scottish National Party. In 1999 he returned to Scotland to participate in the campaign for the first Scottish Parliament election.
Already known for some time for anti-integration positions on the United Kingdom, in 2014 he openly favored Yes for the Scottish independence referendum. “This is a unique opportunity not to be missed – the then 84-year-old actor born in Edinburgh declared – with the victory of Yes will renew our focus on our culture and politics, giving us our cultural heritage And provides an unprecedented opportunity to promote our creative excellence ”.
“We are a small nation, but we deserve to be independent”, Sean Connery likes to reiterate in his continued pre-independence statements. “I support the freedom struggle because I believe in equality”. In 2012 he said: “The first step was the triumph of an autonomous parliament. The second came with the election of a Scottish National Party-led government in 2007. Now I believe Scotland has what it takes to take a third. I Moving towards independence, and I am confident that I will succeed in my life. ”Sean Connery died with this 90-year unfulfilled dream, but with a tattoo inscribed” Forever Scotland “on his arm .
