Film star Sean Connery is urging fellow Scots to vote for independence when a referendum is held in September.
The longtime independence advocate says in The Sun on Sunday newspaper that the opportunity to separate from the rest of Britain is too good an opportunity to miss.
He says independence would galvanize the film and creative industries, creating new jobs in Scotland.
Connery no longer lives there and said the decision should be made by the people who choose to live and work in Scotland.
He said a vote for independence would bring renewed focus on Scottish culture, heritage and creative excellence.
His view is not shared by rock star David Bowie, who has urged Scottish voters to remain part of the United Kingdom.

I wonder if Scotland has been invaded by muslims like the rest of England has? And if not... I support them 100% in trying to break free and stop the muslim welcoming madness.
Gee...never really knew they were behold’n.
I generally don’t agree with film stars on anything but in this case I do. Why should Scotland pay in part for the Royal family? Why should they be on the hook for a failed welfare state and a country overrun by Muzzies? If they can get out, then get out while the getting is good.
Mr. Connery is a very famous, very wealthy man, and has been such as long as I can remember, going back almost 50 years. His lifestyle and day to day needs are likely very different from the average Scot. I would be interested to know how the non-famous, non wealthy Scottish think about separating from Great Britian. What was an ingrained battle for independance last century may be different today, what with the British and EU economy so unpredictable.
I think it started the other way around when James VI of Scotland was declared King of England and Ireland.
Take is back again and declare freedom
What the f....?
I thought that was returned to Scotland several years ago.
OMG, I almost forgot about that movie “Zardoz”. I imagine Connery wants to forget it, too...
I like Sean Connery movies but he has been living in other countries most of his life. He should be living in Scotland.
But only if the EU nags let them.... /spit
I think not so much muslims as leftist, environmentalist, socialist wackos.
At least that’s what I get from friends there and visiting Scotland based news and other websites. Shetland seems especially infected.
This would be their best hope of controlling the flow of muslims and others into Scotland. It’s obvious Great Britain doesn’t give a tin shi!t about it’s history and culture.
