TOMORROW NEVER DIES

PIERCE BROSNAN (James Bond) made his much-anticipated bow in the role of the legendary James Bond in "GoldenEye," which went on to become the most successful Bond film in history

PIERCE BROSNAN (James Bond) made his much-anticipated bow in the role of the legendary James Bond in "GoldenEye," which went on to become the most successful Bond film in history.

He most recently starred in the box-office smash adventure thriller "Dante's Peak," opposite Linda Hamilton, as well as in Barbra Streisand's romantic comedy "The Mirror Has Two Faces," opposite Streisand, Jeff Bridges and Mimi Rogers; Tim Burton's sci-fi comedy "Mars Attacks!," with Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close and Martin Short; in the romantic comedy "Love Affair," opposite Warren Beatty and Annette Bening; and opposite Robin Williams and Sally Fields in the comic hit "Mrs. Doubtfire." Brosnan recently launched, with partner Beau St. Clair, Irish Dream Time Inc. with a modestly budgeted production in Ireland, "The Nephew," with producer Brosnan assuming a role in support of distinguished Irish actor Donal McCann.

Brosnan was born in County Meath, Ireland, where he lived until the age of 11 when he joined his mother in London. It was there that he grew into his craft, studying acting at the Drama Centre for three years after some preliminary workshops in experimental theatre.

After school he went straight into a job as an acting assistant stage manager at the York Theatre Royal, and it was six months later that the eminent Tennessee Williams selected Brosnan to create the role of McCabe in the British premiere of "Red Devil Battery Sign." Brosnan starred in other prestigious London stage productions such as Franco Zeffirelli's "Filumena" (for a year and a half) and "Wait Until Dark" at the York.

Brosnan's selection for the lead in the American mini-series "The Manions of America" brought the actor his first U.S. critical acclaim and led to his casting as the title role in the hit series "Remington Steele." "Nancy Astor," a thirteen-part television series for the BBC, earned him a Golden Globe nomination. His subsequent theatrical film starring roles have included John McTiernan's Nomads, Nicholas Myers's The Deceivers and his pairing with Michael Caine in the big screen adaptation of the Frederick Forsythe novel, The Fourth Protocol.

Early in his career, Brosnan married actress Cassandra Harris, a noted stage and screen performer who starred in the James Bond picture, "For Your Eyes Only." He lost her to ovarian cancer in 1991 and has since dedicated himself to supporting research into women's cancer, along with the single dad challenges of raising their children, Christopher, Charlotte and Sean William. He serves as Ambassador for Women's Health Issues for The Entertainment Industry Foundation Permanent Charities. In that capacity, he has addressed key members of the U.S. Congress on ovarian cancer, has headed the extraordinary successful annual Revlon Run/Walk for Women and other events which have raised over $6,000,000 to combat ovarian and breast cancer.

He has also assumed a passionate leadership role in environmental issues. His appeal on behalf of dolphin protection, produced by environmental journalist Keely Shaye Smith, has had impact on theatre and TV screens, and he has participated importantly in other ECO, Greenpeace and Sea Shepherd sponsored campaigns such as the effort to preclude France's atomic testing in the South Pacific.

In January of 1997, he and Keely Shaye Smith, his close
