Best known for his role as James Bond, which is not considered Sci-Fi or Fantasy, however he did star in many SFF films such as Zardoz, Highlander, Indiana Jones, First Knight, and his last appearance on screen in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
He was knighted by the Queen at Holyrood Palace in 2000. In August, he celebrated his 90th birthday.
He was probably one the most recognizable actors of the 20th century and will be missed by all who loved him and his work.
I guess Goldfinger finally got his wish...
