Did you know that Sean Connery wore a wig as James Bond? It’s not something that is clearly visible in each film, which is kind of the point. It blended in seamlessly with his natural hair. So why then did Sean Connery have to wear a wig as James Bond?
Sean Connery started balding at age 17.
Sean Connery started going bald at a very young age, and it became his biggest concern. Unfortunately, his baldness was genetic and there was no escaping it. Connery suffered an early onset of baldness; much younger than most. Fortunately, he didn’t let it hold him back from pursuing his epic acting career. Sean Connery’s attitude was, “have hairpiece, will act!”
He starred in several Bond Movies: From Russia with Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967), Diamonds Are Forever (1971) and in the non-official 1983 Bond film, Never Say Never Again.
