Early lifeThomas Sean Connery was born in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, to Euphemia “Effie” (née Maclean), a cleaning woman, and Joseph Connery, a factory worker and lorry driver.7 Both his mother’s parents were native Scottish Gaelic speakers8 from Fife and Uig on the Isle of Skye.9 His father was a Roman Catholic Scot, while his mother was a Protestant. He has a younger brother, Neil (b. 1938). Connery claims he was called Sean, his middle name, long before becoming an actor, explaining that when he was young he had an Irish friend named Séamus and that those who knew them both had decided to call Connery by his middle name whenever both were present.
Connery’s first job was as a milkman in Edinburgh with St. Cuthbert’s Co-operative Society.10 He then joined the Royal Navy during which time he opted for two tattoos that are described on his official website as:
’unlike many tattoos, his were not frivolous – his tattoos reflect two of his lifelong commitments: his family and Scotland. After six decades, his tattoos still reflect those two ideas: One tattoo is a tribute to his parents and reads “Mum and Dad,” and the other is self explanatory, “Scotland Forever.”11
