Harrison Ford Pays Respects to On Screen Father and “Dear Friend” Sean Connery. On October 31, 2020 award winning actor Sean Connery passed away in his sleep at his home in the Bahamas after being”unwell for quite some time”. Connery’s on screen son from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Harrison Ford has shared tribute to the late and great actor in a statement released to Variety.

Ford shared his condolences in a statement, sharing, “”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.”
