Like millions of the film titan’s fans, John Duddy is mourning the passing of Sean Connery. It was exceptionally personal for the boxer-turned thespian who spent a memorable afternoon with the legendary James Bond star in the Bahamas in 2008. Over lunch in Nassau, Connery imparted words of wisdom to Duddy and his wife Grainne. “He was a very impressive man,” Duddy told the Echo. Pictured are John and Grainne with their famous host.
