Pierce Brendan Brosnan OBE (born ) is an Irish actor, film producer, and activist who after leaving comprehensive school at age 16, began training in commercial illustration.
Brosnan himself subsequently criticised many aspects of his fourth Bond movie.
During the promotion, he mentioned that he would like to continue his role as James Bond: "I'd like to do another, sure. Six would be a number, then never come back." Brosnan asked Eon Productions, when accepting the role, to be allowed to work on other projects between Bond films.
He was educated at Elliott School, now known as Ark Putney Academy, a coeducational secondary school with academy status in South West London. I grew up in a very small town called Navan in County Meath. He left when I was an infant and I was left in the care of my mother and my grandparents.
To be Catholic in the '50s, and to be Irish Catholic in the '50s, and have a marriage which was not there, a father who was not there, consequently, the mother, the wife suffered greatly. She took the bold steps to go away and be a nurse in England.
Within six months, he was selected by playwright Tennessee Williams to play the role of Mc Cabe in the British première of The Red Devil Battery Sign.
He continued his career making brief appearances in films such as The Long Good Friday (1980) and The Mirror Crack'd (1980), as well as early television performances in The Professionals, Murphy's Stroke, and Play for Today.Shortly after the release of Die Another Day, the media began questioning whether or not Brosnan would reprise the role for a fifth time.At that time, Brosnan was approaching his 50th birthday.James Berardinelli described Brosnan as "a decided improvement over his immediate predecessor" with a "flair for wit to go along with his natural charm", but added that "fully one-quarter of Goldeneye is momentum-killing padding." Brosnan returned in 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies and 1999's The World Is Not Enough, which were also successful.In 2002, Brosnan appeared for his fourth time as Bond in Die Another Day, receiving mixed reviews similarly to the former two, but was a success at the box office.In 1987, NBC cancelled Remington Steele and Brosnan was offered the role as James Bond, but the publicity revived Remington Steele.
