Which James Bond actor played the role in just one film made by Eon Productions?
It takes a certain quality to play Bond on-screen – not everyone can play the MI6 agent easily. Some actors fit into the role perfectly, while others may not, in which case the movie suffers.
Sean Connery was the first face of James Bond seen by the audience after he debuted in the first Bond film Dr.No. Despite his successes playing the secret service agent, Connery resented the fact that he, as an actor, was solely identified as James Bond, so he decided to retire after playing the role in the movie You Only Live Twice. This gave an opportunity to newcomer George Lazenby to star in the next Bond film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
