SIR Sean Connery has been voted the greatest British actor of all time in an American film fans poll.

The 83-year-old James Bond star beat younger actors such as Daniel Craig to clinch the top spot.

The UK results, published for the first time by the Q Scores Company of New York, top ranks Edinburgh-born Sir Sean.

Film studios usually pay huge fees to obtain Q Score charts, based on US opinion polls held every six months.
