Top 10 Pierce Brosnan Movies

By Sari N. Kent,

Pierce Brosnan was born in Navan, County Meath, Ireland and lived there until he moved to England when he was 11 years old. His father left when Pierce was young, and though they would reunite later in life, they never became close. His mother would later remarry and Brosnan’s stepfather, Bill, treated Brosnan like his own son. It was Bill who took him to see Goldfinger, and it was at that moment that Brosnan knew he wanted to be an actor. At 20, he enrolled in The Oval House and continued his studies at The Drama Center in London. After graduation, Brosnan performed in several West End stage productions including Franco Zeffirelli’s Fulimena and Tennessee Williams’ The Red Devil Battery Sign at the York Theater Royal. Brosnan came to America, Los Angeles to be specific, in 1982 and immediately landed the role of private investigator Remington Steele on the popular NBC television series of the same name. Following the show’s cancellation in 1987, Brosnan took his talent to the silver screen where he starred opposite Michael Caine, Ned Beatty and Joanna Cassidy in the 1987 action/thriller The Fourth Protocol. Other roles followed in television movies as well as motion pictures. Brosnan’s ultimate dream came true when he finally became famed secret agent James Bond in 1995’s GoldenEye. He would play the role in three more movies until he passed the torch to Daniel Craig following 2002’s Die Another Day. Brosnan has also shared the screen with some of Hollywood’s sexiest and most talented women such as Stephanie Zimbalist, Salma Hayek, Rene Russo, Halle Berry and Julianne Moore just to name a few. Besides his acting pursuits, Brosnan is an avid activist, especially for ovarian cancer, which his first wife, Cassandra Harris, died from in 1991. Brosnan and Harris had a son, Sean, together plus Brosnan has two children, Dylan and Paris, with his second wife, Keely Shaye Smith. In honor of his 51st birthday, here is a Top 10 list of Pierce Brosnan movies.
