Sean Connery’s other half Micheline Roquebrune stated in an uncommon interview that her spouse experienced dementia prior to his death.
The famous Scottish star, the very first to play James Bond in a movie, passed away at age 90 in the Bahamas, his household revealed on Saturday, Oct. 31. He had actually lived there completely given that he mainly retired from acting in 2003.
Roquebrune, Connery’s other half of 45 years and a 91-year-old French-Moroccan artist, talked to the Mail on Sunday about her spouse’s health and his last days in an interview published online on Sunday, Nov. 1.
“He had dementia and it took its toll on him,” she stated. “He got his final wish to slip away without any fuss.”
She informed the paper, “It was no life for him. He was not able to express himself latterly. At least he died in his sleep and it was just so peaceful. I was with him all the time and he just slipped away. It was what he wanted.”
