ACTRESS Diane Cilento, the first wife of James Bond star Sir Sean Connery, has died in northern Australia at the age of 78.

Ms Cilento, a veteran of dozens of films, television shows and stage productions, died on Thursday night, Queensland state premier Anna Bligh said. No cause of death was given.

She had a son, Jason, also now an actor, with Connery, before divorcing the Fountainbridge-born star in 1973.
