Bond... James Bond

Did you know that Sean Connery doesn't have an accent anymore? When I say, "anymore," I don't mean that he's suddenly started sounding more like me. I mean now that I'm in Scotland, he sounds kind of normal. I was watching late night BBC recently and, "You Only Live Twice" was on. To my ear his accent was nearly gone. Poof. He sounds just like everyone else around me. The Tesco clerk, the girl at the petrol station -- you name it, they all sound just like Sean Connery. Maybe that's why I like Scotland so much. I wonder, if we end up in Hong Kong, will I feel the same way about Jackie Chan?
