'''Pierce Brosnan''' (born May 16, 1953) is an Irish actor, working since the late '70s/Early '80s.

Born in [[{{UsefulNotes/Ireland}} County Louth]], Brosnan spent the first eleven years of his life in Navan, County Meath. Brosnan was an only child. His mother worked in [[{{UsefulNotes/London}} London]] as a nurse to provide for him, seeing him only once or twice a year. His biological father abandoned the family when Brosnan was a baby, so he was raised by various relatives and at a boarding house. By the age of eleven, Brosnan moved out of Ireland to live with his mother and her new husband, first living in Scotland and then going on to live in London, where Brosnan would live until his late twenties (losing his natural Irish accent in the process). One of the first films his new step-father took him to see was ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'', which left an indelible impression on him.

!!Tropes relating to Pierce Brosnan and his Brosnan's work:



* AwesomeMcCoolName: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqp0M_89JRU According to Jimmy Kimmel]], Pierce Brosnan is the best name ever. Other people in the media have noted that the actor's name sounds just as cool, masculine and sexy as James Bond.



* ChickMagnet: He attracts the ladies even when he doesn't intend to. [[http://www.theguardian.com/film/2002/jan/13/features.magazine In this interview]], a journalist asks Brosnan which gender approaches him the most among his fans, and his firm response is, "Oh women, definitely." Moreover, he and his first wife told ''TV Guide'' in an article that was published on June 9, 1984 that being a sex symbol can be very unpleasant at times because of the constant stream of unwanted attention.
-->'''Pierce Brosnan''': [Hollywood] is a pretty fast town and the women are terrible. Some actresses do this whole number, proposition me, right in front of my wife, and sometimes I am just so naïve that I don't get it until maybe 10 minutes later. I cannot believe the gall of these people.\\

the ladies even when he doesn't they don't intend to. It seems to draw from real life, too, as [[http://www.theguardian.com/film/2002/jan/13/features.magazine In in this interview]], a journalist asks Brosnan which gender approaches him the most among his fans, and his firm response is, "Oh women, definitely."

* DisappearedDad: His own father up and left the family when Brosnan was just a baby. They didn't meet until ''Series/RemingtonSteele'' came to Ireland for a shoot. Incidentally, Brosnan is just the opposite of this, not only being there for his own biological children but adopting and raising his late wife's children as well.

to:

* DisappearedDad: His character in ''Series/RemingtonSteele'' is an orphan and an arc in the show implied that his mentor in the art of being a con man may or may not have been his father all along; and his first movie as James Bond, ''Film/{{GoldenEye}}'', was the first one to mention that Bond's parents died in a climbing accident when he was a child. Brosnan's own father up and left the family when Brosnan was just a baby. They didn't meet until ''Series/RemingtonSteele'' ''Remington Steele'' came to Ireland for a shoot. Incidentally, Brosnan is just the opposite of this, not only being there for his own biological children but adopting and raising his late wife's children as well.



* OneOfUs: He dropped a trope name ("Narmy") in a documentary about his time as James Bond.

to:

* FakeBrit: [[invoked]] To the point of typecasting, even before he played Film/JamesBond.
* IAmNotSpock: [[invoked]] Even before he was cast as James Bond, he was highly identified with the character of Remington Steele.
* OneOfUs: [[invoked]] He dropped a trope name ("Narmy") in a documentary about his time as James Bond.


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: [[invoked]] Brosnan first got offered the Bond role in 1986 with ''Film/TheLivingDaylights''. He did a screen test and a lot of promotional materials for the film, as well as a gunbarrel sequence but ultimately he had to give up the role when NBC, looking to capitalise on his new-found success, renewed ''Series/RemingtonSteele'' for a fifth season. Rather than let NBC ride on EON's coattails, they simply refused to let Brosnan be Bond. Fortunately, it worked out for the best, as Creator/TimothyDalton won the part (EON had been trying to get him since 1968) and Brosnan eventually got the part for ''Film/{{GoldenEye}}''.
