Who is Dashiell Connery?
Dashiell Connery is an aspiring American actor who is yet to make a mark in the craft. However, he is already a celebrity of sorts due to the family name he carries. Unlike his father, who was born and raised in the UK and Scotland, Dashiell was raised in California, USA. His mother, Mia Sara, is an American actor, best known for her performance in the famous comedy movie ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ (1986). She is still an active member of the Hollywood fraternity. One of her recent projects was the 2017 animation ‘Mowgli.’ His father, Jason Connery, who is primarily a director now, delivered his most prominent performance in the lead role in the British series ‘Robin of Sherwood.’ Born into the Connery family, which is full of stalwarts from the entertainment industry, Dashiell is expected to be as popular as his father, mother, and his legendary grandfather, Sir Sean Connery.
He appeared in a small role in ‘Pandemic’ (2009), a movie directed by his father. He was only 12 at the time. He assisted his father on the sets of his movie ‘Tommy’s Honour’ in 2016. He also worked with Trent Culkin in a music video for ‘Twenty One Pilots: My Blood,’ in 2018. However, he has not made any more appearances on the big screen yet. His social-media fan following is not too impressive. However, his social-media profiles showcase his moderate upbringing and his persona of a fun young man.

Dashiell’s parents, Jason Connery and Mia Sara, met on the sets of ‘Bullet to Beijing’ in 1995. They got married in March 1996. Dashiell, their only child, was born a year later, in June 1997. After his parents divorced in 2002, he stayed with his father. Jason is now helping him pursue his career in Hollywood. In 2008, young Dashiell was caught in the middle of a media controversy, allegedly caused by a statement given by his grandmother and Sir Sean Connery’s first wife, Diane Cilento, implying a family feud between Sean Connery and Jason. ‘The Sunday Times’ published the statement in July 2008. After the newspaper accused Sean Connery of depriving Jason of his inheritance, young Dashiell and his father came out in support of his grandfather, denouncing the allegations as false. Sir Sean Connery gave a statement in the media, stating that all the mud-slinging was due to his political affiliations and that the accusations were absolutely baseless.
