PIERCE BRONSAN: Trained as a commercial artist, Pierce originally sought a career in illustration! But what would Bond be without Pierce?! Piecre paints primarily for charity…and for pure enjoyment! At age 16 he began training in commercial illustration. He then went on to train at the Drama Centre in London for three years. Following a stage acting career Pierce rose to popularity in the television series Remington Steele (1982–87), which blended the genres of romantic comedy, drama, and detective plot. After the run of Remington Steele, he appeared in films such as the Cold War spy film The Fourth Protocol (1987) and the comedy Mrs. Doubtfire (1993). In 1994, he became the fifth actor to play secret agent James Bond, starring in four films from 1995 to 2002 (GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day).
