Jason Connery was bornon 11 January 1963 in Marylebone, United Kingdom, British, is Actor, Director. Jason Connery is a British actor and director who is best known for playing Robin Hood in the ITV television series ‘Robin of Sherwood’, and for directing the award-winning historical drama film 'Tommy's Honour'. However, despite his own achievements, many still remember him for his celebrity actor parents, Sir Sean Connery and Diane Cilento. According to him, being born to celebrity actors did not make his journey as an actor any smoother. He was in awe of the media image of his father, and when he finally decided to pursue acting professionally, he had to put on a defensive attitude, feeling it necessary to convince others that he can actually act, and is not in the industry because of his star parents. He has indeed proven his acting prowess in numerous TV shows and movies, including ‘Spymaker: The Secret Life of Ian Fleming’, ‘The Other Side of Paradise’, ‘Bullet to Beijing’, ‘Casualty’, ‘Urban Ghost Story’, ‘Merlin: The Quest Begins’, ‘Wishmaster 3: Beyond the Gates of Hell’, and many more. In recent times, he has been more interested in staying behind the camera rather than in front of it, and has established himself as a successful director by winning a Scottish BAFTA.
