I DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT

Recognized internationally as one of the most dashing and skilled dramatic actors in Hollywood today, two time Golden Globe® Award nominee PIERCE BROSNAN enjoys working both in front of the camera and behind-the-scenes as a producer.

Brosnan‟s recent films include PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF, based upon the best-selling novel by Richard Riordan; Roman Polanski‟s critically acclaimed THE GHOST WRITER, with Ewan McGregor; REMEMBER ME, with Robert Pattinson; and THE GREATEST with Susan Sarandon and Carey Mulligan, which premiered to rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival. His film credits include the smash hit film adaptation of the Broadway hit MAMMA MIA! (2008) opposite Meryl Streep; 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) in which he starred opposite Liam Neeson; THE MATADOR (2005) for which he received a Golden Globe® Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture and a nomination for Best Actor in a Lead Role from the Irish Film & Television Academy; John Boorman‟s critically acclaimed THE TAILOR OF PANAMA (2001), based on the novel by John LeCarre; Sir Richard Attenborough‟s GREY OWL (1999); Tim Burton‟s MARS ATTACKS! (1996); THE MIRROR HAS TWO FACES (1996) alongside Barbra Streisand; MRS. DOUBTFIRE (1993) with Robin Williams; and Bruce Beresford‟s MR. JOHNSON (1990).

But he is perhaps best known worldwide as James Bond. Brosnan reinvigorated the popularity of the Bond legacy in box-office blockbusters GOLDENEYE (1995), TOMORROW NEVER DIES (1997), 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 films – THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR (1999), DANTE‟S PEAK (1997) and THE LAWNMOWER MAN (1992) - combined have earned hundreds of millions of dollars internationally, cementing him as one of the world‟s most bankable stars.

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. Irish DreamTime has produced seven films to date: THE NEPHEW (1998); THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR (1999); EVELYN (2002), a critically acclaimed drama directed by Bruce Beresford; LAWS OF ATTRACTION (2004), a romantic comedy that starred Brosnan and Julianne Moore; THE MATADOR (2005); SHATTERED (2007), which starred Brosnan with Maria Bello and Gerard Butler; and THE GREATEST.

Upcoming projects for Irish DreamTime include the second installment of THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR.

Some of Brosnan‟s many accolades include the 2007 Goldene Kamera Award for his environmental work; a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 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 title role as a private investigator in on the popular ABC television series "Remington Steele.”
