Connery was married to Cilento from 1962 to 1973; the couple had a son together, actor Jason Connery in 1963.
The divorce was said to be linked to the enormous toll that Connery playing Bond took on their lives and their marriage.
The couple met while they performed in the BBC production of Eugene O’Neill’s play Anna Christie.
On 8th October 2011, Cilento sadly died at age 78.
