PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS
THE LIGHTNING THIEF

Recognized internationally as one of the most dashing and skilled dramatic actors in Hollywood today, Golden Globe® Award nominee PIERCE BROSNAN (Chiron the Centaur/Mr. Brunner) starred opposite Meryl Streep in the smash hit film adaptation of the Broadway hit "Mamma Mia!”

Brosnan received a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture for his role as Julian Noble in the critically acclaimed film "The Matador” in 2005. Additionally, he received a nomination for this performance for Best Actor in a Lead Role from the Irish Film & Television Academy.

Perhaps best known worldwide as James Bond, Brosnan reinvigorated the popularity of the Bond legacy in box-office blockbusters such as "Goldeneye” (1995), "Tomorrow Never Dies” (1999), "The World Is Not Enough” (1999) and "Die Another Day” (2002). Brosnan's first three Bond films earned over a billion dollars at the international box-office and "Die Another Day” alone garnered almost a half-billion dollars worldwide.

In addition to his four Bond films, three other Brosnan features -- "The Thomas Crown Affair,” "Dante's Peak” and "The Lawnmower Man” have collectively earned hundreds of millions of dollars internationally, cementing him as one of the world's most bankable stars.

Brosnan's other film credits include "Married Life” (2007) in which he starred with Rachel McAdams, Patricia Clarkson and Chris Cooper for director Ira Sachs; the Civil War drama "Seraphim Falls” (2007) opposite Liam Neeson; John Boorman's critically acclaimed film from the John LeCarre novel, "The Tailor of Panama” (2001); Bruce Beresford's "Mr. Johnson” (1990) and Sir Richard Attenborough's "Grey Owl” (1999). Brosnan has also showcased his comedic skills in such films as "Mrs. Doubtfire” (his first project with director Chris Columbus) and Tim Burton's "Mars Attacks” (1996). He had a supporting role alongside Barbra Streisand in "The Mirror Has Two Faces” (1996).

In addition to his work in front of the camera, Brosnan has always had an interest in the art of filmmaking. Having achieved international stardom as an actor, Brosnan expanded the range of his film work by launching his own production company, Irish DreamTime in 1996, along with producing partner Beau St. Clair.

Apart from "The Matador,” Irish DreamTime has produced five other films to date -- "The Nephew” (1998), "The Thomas Crown Affair” (1999), "Evelyn” (2002), "Laws of Attraction” (2004) and "Shattered” (2007). "The Thomas Crown Affair,” the company's first studio project, was a critical and boxoffice success. "Evelyn,” directed by Bruce Beresford, opened to critical acclaim at the Toronto and Chicago Film Festivals and also garnered rave reviews. "Laws of Attraction,” a romantic comedy which teamed Brosnan with Julianne Moore, focused on dueling divorce attorneys who fall in love. "Shattered” is a psychological thriller in which Brosnan starred with Maria Bello and Gerard Butler.

His many accolades include the 2007 Goldene Kamera Award for his environmental work, a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2002 Chicago Film Festival, the International Star of the Year at the Cinema Expo in Amsterdam, an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from the Dublin Institute of Technology, an Honorary Doctorate from the University College Cork and an Order of the British Empire bestowed by Her Majesty the Queen.

Brosnan was born in County Meath, Ireland, and moved to London at age 11. At 20, he enrolled in drama school and while in London, performed in several West End stage productions including Franco Zeffirelli's "Fulimena” and Tennessee Williams' "The Red Devil Battery Sign” at the York Theater Royal. Brosnan relocated to Los Angeles in 1982 and immediately landed the role of private investigator Remington Steele on the popular NBC television series of the same name.
