Pierce Brosnan worked really hard for his success, 20 Feb 2002
"Pierce Brosnan is one of today's top movie stars, acclaimed worldwide for his contemporary portrayal of James Bond. Born in Ireland, brought up by relatives, Pierce was a shy schoolboy in London, but drama classes and theatre work in England led to television success in America as private detective Remington Steele. He made his big-screen debut in 1980 and has now starred in twenty mainstream movies.
Brosnan is an environmentalist and a dedicated supporter of The Prince's Trust. In August 2001, 120 friends and family travelled to Ireland's historic Ballintubber Abbey for the 'fairy-tale' wedding of the year when Brosnan married his long-time partner Keely Shay-Smith, an occasion which made headlines around the world.
This compelling story provides a graphic account of Pierce Brosnan's early struggle for professional recognition and his ultimate international success as a serious film actor. It also unfolds the humon sorrow and joy that has punctuated the life and times of one of the most likeable, sincere, talented and successful contemporary stars."
This is the third biography of Pierce Brosnan that I've read and I'm still not tired of it. It's always quite interesting to read how the different authors see his life. The facts of course are still the same but Peter Carrick stresses different parts of Pierce Brosnan's life than York Membery in his biography 'Pierce Brosnan: A biography'.
