It’s been eleven days for a Scottish actor Sir Sean Connery Died at the age of 90. Since then, countless artists have commented on the great actor’s death and honored and thanked Connery for his art and life work. In a conversation with “Scottish Mail” magazine, his widow Michelle Rokbrune revealed what her dead husband’s last wish was: he asked that his ashes be returned home after her death.
“We’re going to bring Sean back to Scotland – this was his last wish,” Rokbrune revealed. “He wanted his ashes scattered in the Bahamas and also in his country.” The actor lived in the Bahamas for many years. According to Roquebrune, due to the still difficult situation with severe corona virus, a trip to Scotland would have to wait a while. “Whenever it is possible and safe to travel, we will return to Scotland as a family with him. We would like to organize a memorial service for him in Scotland – this is our hope. But we cannot say when exactly that will happen. “
First of all James Bond– According to Rokbrune, the actor was recently suffering from severe dementia, making it impossible for him to express himself. “It was not a life for her,” she told the Scottish Mail. “It took its toll on him. He has not been able to express himself lately ”. At least he died peacefully in his sleep – as he wished, Roquebrune said. He said, “I was with him the whole time, and he just snatched away. That’s what he wanted.”
