Pierce Brosnan was born in Navan, County Meath, Ireland on May 16, 1953 but moved to England, UK at an early age (thus explaining his ability to play men from both backgrounds convincely). His father left the household when Pierce was a child and although reunited later in life the two have never had a close relationship. His current, and most popular role is that of British Secret Agent, James Bond. The death, in 1991, of his wife Cassandra of ten years, left him with three children - Christopher and Charlotte from Cassandra's first marriage and Sean from their marriage. Since her death he has had one son, Dylan Thomas, with longtime companion Keely Shaye Smith.
