A few days ago Hollywood lost a legend when actor Sean Connery passed away at the age of 90. While many people associate him with being James Bond (Connery was the first actor to portray the character on screen), to me he will always be Henry Jones Sr. Yes, father of famed archeologist Indiana Jones, this will always be Connery’s most memorable role, for me anyway.
In a statement you can find below, Harrison Ford, the actor who plays Indiana Jones talks about having Connery join the franchise as Indy’s dad in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
“He was my father … not in life … but in Indy 3. You don’t know pleasure until someone pays you to take Sean Connery for a ride in the sidecar of a Russian motorcycle bouncing along a bumpy, twisty mountain trail and getting to watch him squirm. God we had fun — if he’s in heaven, I hope they have golf courses. Rest in peace dear friend.”

The two were great together in the film. While the character only appeared in one Indiana Jones film, Connery made viewers feel like Henry Jones had always been a part of the series, or that we just somehow knew him. While it’s difficult to imagine iconic roles being played by other actors, Henry Jones Sr. is one of those roles where it’s nearly impossible to do so.
