Sir Sean Connery and Brit Ekland attend opening of Edinburgh film fest
Sir Sean Connery and Britt Ekland added a touch of James Bond to the opening gala of the 64th Edinburgh International Film Festival.
The former 007, who turns 80 in August and is celebrating his birthday early as part of the festival, joked with fans and signed autographs as he walked the red carpet at the screening of acclaimed French animator Sylvain Chomet's The Illusionist.
Ekland, who was a Bond Girl alongside Roger Moore in The Man With The Golden Gun, is on the jury for the Michael Powell Award at this year's festival, along with jury president Sir Patrick Stewart, who also attended the premiere.
