* FakeBrit: To the point of Typecasting, even before he played Film/JamesBond.
* IAmNotSpock: Even before he was cast as James Bond, he was highly identified with the character of Remington Steele.



* ScrewedByTheNetwork: 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}}''.

Added DiffLines:

** Brosnan inadvertently turned his ''Film/MammaMia'' co-star Creator/MerylStreep into one of his avid fangirls because she impulsively ''ripped his shirt off'' while they were filming a scene even though it was ''not'' part of the script! Even a consummate professional like Streep couldn't keep her hands off Pierce's CarpetOfVirility.

Moreover, he and his first wife told ''TV Guide'' in an article that was published on June 9, 19841984 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.\\
'''Cassandra Harris''': These women are horrible. They try to use me to become friendly with Pierce. Or else, they just cut me dead, and only want to speak to him. Sometimes I feel like bursting into tears.
