Perhaps Connery's most iconic and recognizable co-star out of all of his Bond movies, Andress played the bikini-clad Honey Ryder in Eon Productions' first movie in the franchise back in 1962.
The legendary Bond girl spoke to Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera about working with Connery, recalling how the Scottish was "was full of vitality" and "of passion for women".
Speaking about Connery's passing, Andress said: "I feel great pain over Sean Connery's death.
"He was a great man. Today, such men no longer exist, they are all too narcissistic, too absorbed in themselves. Someone like Sean is hard to find today. He was a great friend and a fabulous actor."[[imagecaption|| Credit: PA Images]]
Speaking about the moment she first met Connery, Andress said: "I was a little scared. We were on the set in Kingston and I didn't know Jamaica.
"We met for the first time in the dining room of the small hotel where we were staying; he was alone at the table and I was fearful. But then it all passed. During the making of the film he was very protective of me, adorable, fantastic."[[imagecaption|| Credit: PA Images]]
Recalling the friendship between the two, the 84-year-old star said: "He had a sense of humor that I liked a lot. The last time I saw him was in Switzerland. Sean had a house near me in Gstaad.
"We spent many evenings together and he would invite me everywhere, Monte Carlo, London, New York, from when we met until now we always remained friends."
She concluded by saying: "We lived some beautiful moments and I will always have fabulous memories.
"For me, Sean is not dead. He will always be alive, with me forever."
