Pinewood sound stage named after Sean Connery
August 25, 2022
Pinewood Studios has announced that its new sound stage will be named in honour of the late Sir Sean Connery. The purpose-built, 18,000 square foot Sean Connery Stage is one of five new stages opening at the iconic lot.
Connery filmed all six of his James Bond movies at Pinewood in Buckinghamshire, from 1962’s Dr. No to Diamonds Are Forever in 1971.
Connery’s son Jason and stepson Stephane said in a joint statement: “Our family consider it a great honour to have a stage named after Sean. It is fitting, considering the amount of time Sean spent at Pinewood, and we know that he would have been very touched by this privilege.”
Pinewood Group Chairman, Paul Golding, added “We are delighted to announce that one of our five new sound stages at Pinewood Studios will be named, ‘The Sean Connery Stage’. The revered actor, and original James Bond, had a life-long connection with both Pinewood and Shepperton Studios. It is fitting that the naming ceremony will take place in 2022, the 60th anniversary year of the James Bond films.”
