• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Pierce Brosnan is an Irish actor, working from the Late '70s/Early '80s to the present.

Brosnan seems to particularly like played flawed spies and thieves, but he has played a variety of roles, not always with the suave sophistication he is noted for. He played Remington Steele from '82-'87, which was his breakthrough role. He had to turn down James Bond while working on the show [1] but he became James Bond from Goldeneye until the franchise was rebooted.

Aside from Bond, Brosnan has done many other notable movies, such as the 1999 remake of The Thomas Crown Affair, and The Tailor Of Panama, a film adaptation of John Le Carre's novel in which he basically got to play the anti-Bond.

  1. That is to say, he took the role after Steele was cancelled, but had to drop out after it was brought back, because the network wanted to capitalise on on his new found fame as the new Bond.
