The original James Bond, Sir Sean Connery, has topped a new list of popular British actors in America, despite retiring several years ago.
Connery was listed as the most recognisable and well-liked actor in a recent US survey which measures the public's opinion of celebrities.

"The World Is Not Enough" villain Robert Carlyle came in at #12, and Alan Cumming from "GoldenEye" at #21. "Live And Let Die" Bond girl Jane Seymour was #27
