(Newser) – No one could say "Bond, James Bond," quite like he did. But tributes to the life of Sean Connery—who died Saturday at age 90—reveal a deeper awe and affection for a man who touched many lives around him, Variety reports. Among their reactions:

  • Daniel Craig: "Sir Sean Connery will be remembered as Bond and so much more," he said, per the BBC. "He defined an era and a style. The wit and charm he portrayed on screen could be measured in megawatts; he helped create the modern blockbuster."
  • Tippi Hedren: "An elegant man, a brilliant actor and an over all amazing individual," she said. "Not to mention extremely attractive."
  • Courtney B. Vance: "Through it all, Mr. Connery never lost the core of his Scottish roots, no matter the cost," the actor told the Hollywood Reporter. "He refused to be 'bought.' And I think that was the source of his appeal to his legions of fans."
