Sean Connery named America`s most popular Brit
London: James Bond icon Sean Connery has topped a new poll to find the most popular British actor in the US.
Despite not having appeared on the big screen for over ten years, the 83-year-old Hollywood veteran saw off competition from Colin Firth and Daniel Craig to take first place in this year`s Q Score chart, based on opinion polls conducted in America, reported Metro online.
`Silence of the Lambs` star Anthony Hopkins came in second and Liam Neeson was third, while David McCallum and Daniel Day-Lewis rounded out the top five.
Henry Schafer, executive vice president of Q Scores Company, said, "Awareness of Sean Connery and his appeal was strong across the country and with all ages. He was not working so much but he had already transcended in the way people felt about him."
