Pierce Brosnan was tussen 1995 en 2002 in vier James Bond-films te zien. In een recent gesprek onthulde hij niet blij te zijn met zijn werk voor de franchise. De acteur vertelde:
“I have no desire to watch myself as James Bond. Cause it’s just never good enough. It’s a horrible feeling … I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger [Moore] and Sean [Connery].”
“I found it very hard to grasp the meaning. The violence was never real, the brute force of the man was never palpable. It was quite tame, and the characterisation didn’t have a follow-through of reality, it was surface. But then that might have had to do with my own insecurities in playing him as well.”
Brosnan was te zien in de films Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough en Die Another Day.
