Connery to lend voice as James Bond

London: Sean Connery will lend his voice to the latest James Bond videogame. The Scottish actor, who has starred in six Bond films, will provide the dialogue for a new game version of ‘From Russia With Love’. “As an artist, I see this as another way to explore the creative process. Videogames are an extremely popular form of entertainment today, and I am looking forward to seeing how it all fits together,” Connery was quoted as saying. His character will be joined onscreen by animated versions of others from the original 1963 cast - including Desmond Llewelyn’s Q, Robert Shaw’s Red Grant and Lois Maxwell as Miss Moneypenny. — HNS
