Born on August 25, 1930 in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, Scotland, Connery began his career as an aid at the King’s Theatre in the early 1950s. This would help launch him onto a trajectory to becoming a budding stage actor, though he would initially struggle to make ends meet. The 1950s would see him mostly take on smaller roles in both film and TV productions as an extra but, but the end of the decade, Connery began to land larger roles. Arguably his biggest at that point would be the role of Michael McBride in Walt Disney’s Darby O’Gill and the Little People in 1959.
