Peter Carter unveils a bronze bust of Sean Connery.

 

There is, apparently, a distinction even rarer than being granted a license to kill by Her Majesty’s Secret Service, and that is having a bronze sculpture of your likeness displayed in the Estonian capital, Tallinn. Sean Connery is now that most exceptional of actors who can claim both honors: on Thursday, a bust depicting the well-preserved star of seven James Bond films (not to mention “The Hunt for Red October,” “Highlander” and “The Untouchables”) was unveiled outside Tallinn’s Scottish Club, an organization for Scottish expatriates and admirers of all things Scottish in Estonia, The Associated Press reported. Peter Carter, Britain’s ambassador to Estonia, said at the unveiling of the $14,000 sculpture that Mr. Connery was “without a doubt, an icon,” adding: “He is variously known as James Bond or the sexiest man of the century. He’s a great British actor, a great Scot actor and a great symbol for Scotland.”

Mr. Connery was not present, but said in a statement: “One cannot help but be flattered by the Scottish Club’s gesture. My best wishes to the members of the club and to all the people who made this possible.” The statement was read by Mart Haamer, president of the Scottish Club, hopefully in his best Sean Connery accent.
