Actor Sean Connery passed away at the age of 90 this weekend. Popular for starring in the James Bond franchise, Sean was a sought-after talent. He left behind a son, Jason Connery, who he had with his first wife. He was also survived by his current wife, Micheline Roquebrune, who he married in 1975.
Micheline gave some details on her husband’s final days, and it seems as if he had been staying out of the spotlight due to health issues. She revealed that he was suffering from dementia, and wasn’t the same as he used to be. While she’s sad over the loss, she’s acknowledged that it was time. He was no longer enjoying his life the way he did years prior.
“It was no life for him,” she said, per Daily Mail. “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. He had dementia and it took its toll on him. He got his final wish to slip away without any fuss.”
She also took the time to express how much Sean meant to her. It seems as if they were true soulmates, until the very end.
