The Scot, who played James Bond in seven films between 1962 and 1983, remains the most popular British actor in America according to an industry poll.
He tops the list of Brits who feature in the Q score charts, which is are based on opinions polls asking Americans which stars they like the best and how much they trust them.
Carried out every six months among 1,500 people, the New York based Q Scores Company has released its first 'Brit Q' rankings in which the 83-year-old actor triumphed.
Connery, who has starred in more than 70 films, outranks fellow thespians Anthony Hopkins who takes second place and Liam Neeson in third.
Dame Judi Dench is the first woman to appear on the list in sixth place.
The next Scot to join Sir Sean is 80-year-old David McCallum, who comes fourth in the list.
The Glasgow-born actor shot to fame as Illya Kuryakin, a Russian-born secret agent in the 1960s television series The Man from U.N.C.L.E, but is now enjoying success in the States starring in police drama NCIS.
They are joined by six other Scottish actors in the 55-strong list.
Further down in 12th place is Trainspotting star Robert Carlyle who currently plays Rumplestiltskin in the US fantasy-drama series Once Upon a Time.
Following him are actors Gerard Butler in 18th position, Alan Cumming in 21st, and fellow Trainspotting-stars Kevin McKidd in 29th and Ewan McGregor in 35th.
James McAvoy, who plays the role of Charles Xavier in the blockbuster X-Men: First Class, brings up the rear in 39th place.
Surprisingly, despite Scottish actresses like Kelly Macdonald and Laura Fraser starring in the high-profile American shows Boardwalk Empire and Breaking Bad, no Scottish actressed are included in the list.
Henry Schafer, executive vice-president of the Q Scores company said Sir Sean's appeal has "transcended" the normal run of actors, saying "awareness of Sean Connery and his appeal was strong across the country and with all ages.
He added: "British men have become more dominant over the past 15 years as they appear in more American movie and TV roles as well as the awards season."
The number of names on the Q Score list varies from 28 in the first poll in 1998, 46 in 2003 and 41 in 2008, with Sir Sean also topping the polls in 1998 and 2003.
He crown was temporarily knocked off in 2008 by House star, Hugh Laurie, who ranks ninth in the current list.
