Sean Connery widow reveals he had suffered from dementia
Iconic Scottish actor Sean Connery, who has died at the age of 90, suffered from dementia in his final years, his widow Micheline Roquebrune revealed on Sunday.
Connery, famous for playing the original on-screen James Bond, passed away at his home in the Bahamas, prompting an outpouring of tributes.
He died peacefully in his sleep surrounded by family members, his widow Micheline Roquebrune told the Mail on Sunday.
“I was with him all the time and he just slipped away,” the 91-year-old told the newspaper.
“He had dementia and it took its toll on him. He got his final wish to slip away without any fuss.
“It was no life for him. He was not able to express himself latterly.”
Connery will be honoured in a private funeral ceremony, with a memorial event to be held later, according to a publicist.
